Intel Arc A580 launching soon?

It may actually be happening.

Just two weeks ago, we highlighted the ongoing delay in Intel’s launch of the Arc A580 graphics card, which has been postponed for over a year since its initial announcement. While Intel has shared specifications for this card, alongside the Arc A770 and A750 models, the A580 remains conspicuously absent from the market.

As a reminder, the A580 is officially equipped with 24 Xe-Cores, restricting its compatibility to the ACM-G10 Alchemist GPU exclusively. Although Intel has also introduced the G11 with 8 Xe-Cores and the G12 with 16 Xe-Cores, both configurations lack the necessary configuration to support the A580 GPU—unless there have been changes to the specifications.

Interestingly, ASRock and Sparkle appear to be preparing for the imminent launch of the A580 GPU. This card has recently surfaced on the Geizhals price comparison site, and there’s even a snapshot of the Sparkle A580 Orc GPU. Both models are reported to feature 8GB of memory, aligning with Intel’s announcement from a year ago.

ASRock’s Challenger OC model closely resembles the A750 version, both sporting dual 8-pin power connectors. However, the A580 boasts a lower TDP of 175W compared to the A7 series, which features a 225W TDP. The A580 is designed to fit into a full-sized PCIe 4.0×16 slot and is expected to have a GPU clock speed of 2.0 GHz—unless there have been any alterations to the specifications.

Similarly, Sparkle’s A580 ORC follows suit by adopting the design of the A750 ORC, featuring a dual-fan cooler and dual 8-pin power connectors. The card will sport Sparkle’s by now iconic blue shroud design. The power connectors are blue as well.

It wasn’t unreasonable to think that the A580 may have been quietly canceled. The Arc A7 series has been facing challenges in competing with the latest offerings from AMD and NVIDIA, and the A750 has already dropped to a sub-$200 price point. However, should the A580 actually launch, it may become the most affordable 8GB model available on the market.

With the new leak from Sparkle and ASRock, it’s reasonable to expect that the launch of the A580 is right around the corner. Intel hasn’t scheduled any public events, so it might opt for a low-key release.
