Intel Arc A310 getting attention from ASRock

ASRock adds new low profile GPU based on Intel Alchemist architecture.

ASrock has become one of the few board partners to include the Arc A310 GPU in their product lineup. This GPU represents Intel’s lowest-tier offering in the entire Alchemist lineup, utilizing the ACM-G11 GPU with just 6 Xe Cores enabled.

Interestingly, this isn’t ASRock’s first foray into low-profile Arc GPUs, as they’ve previously introduced the A380 model, which it closely resembles. Given that both cards are based on the same GPU, ASRock has opted to employ the same dual-fan cooling solution.

These graphics cards primarily target Small Form Factor (SFF) builds, servers, and systems that may require cost-effective AV1 encoding capabilities. Additionally, the A310 model boasts compatibility with both DisplayPort 2.0 and HDMI 2.0b (although not HDMI 2.1). While the presence of DisplayPort 2.1 (formerly 2.0) offers some level of future-proofing, it’s worth noting that, as of now, there are hardly any DP2.0/2.1 monitors available on the market, with the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 or Dell U3224KB being some of the exceptions, albeit at a hefty $2,499 price point, making it an unlikely companion for the Arc A310.

ASRock’s A310 doesn’t come with overclocking capabilities and operates at a standard 2.0 GHz GPU clock. Moreover, it doesn’t require an external power connector and relies entirely on the 75W power supplied by the PCIe slot, which is also the card’s Total Board Power (TBP).

The A310 is equipped with 4GB of GDDR6 memory connected via a 64-bit memory bus. This means a reduction compared to the 6GB and 96-bit configuration found in the Arc A380 model based on the full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe-Cores.

It’s important to note that ASRock’s A310 low-profile card has yet to appear in any retailer listings. It’s more likely to be found in prebuilt or OEM systems rather than on the shelves of retailers.
