Gigabyte to launch Intel Arc A380/A310 Gaming GPUs

No sign of Gigabyte Arc A7 series yet

Gigabyte is set to join the list of Intel custom board partners with the Arc Alchemist GPU series. 

According to Eurasian Economic Commission filing, Gigabyte is planning as many as five models equipped with Arc GPUs. Gigabyte has been long rumored to be in the talks with Intel as a potential board partner, but this is the first confirmation that such plans were actually true.

Interestingly, despite the launch of mid-range Arc A7 GPU series last week, Gigabyte is not planning any such models yet. Instead, the company will launch entry-level Alchemist GPUs such as A380 or A310 first:

  • Gigabyte Arc A380 Gaming OC 6GB (GV-IA380GAMING OC-6GD)
  • Gigabyte Arc A380 Gaming 6GB (GV-IA380GAMING-6GD)
  • Gigabyte Arc A380 WindForce OC 6GB (GV-IA380WF2OC-6GD)
  • Gigabyte Arc A380 WindForce 6GB (GV-IA380WF2-6GD)
  • Gigabyte Arc A310 WindForce 4GB (GV-IA310WF2-4GD)

This list shows that even Gigabyte considers the Arc A380 a gaming card. The list also confirms that we should even expect factory-overclocked models too.

Since this is also the first time we learn about Gigabyte/Intel GPU product codes, we can now assume that this is how one can easily differentiate between Gigabyte Radeon, GeForce and Arc products codes moving forward:

  • GV-R (AMD Radeon)
  • GV-N (NVIDIA GeForce)
  • GV-I (Intel Arc)

It is welcoming to see one of the three big GPU makers finally join Intel on their Arc odyssey. Thus far, there is no trace of ASUS Arc GPUs, although the company did release a Pre-Arc DG1 model 2 years ago. As for MSI, the company has already launched its A380/A310 GPUs, but they are only available in China with prebuilt systems.
