Intel launches Arc A580, a year too late but at a good price

The card has been missing in action since the 2022 announcement. 

Intel thinks there is room for a new Arc desktop GPU, the one that was already announced a year ago. The current roster comprises mid-range options like the Arc A750/770 models and the entry-level Arc A310/350 series. Given that the Arc A7 SKUs have faced challenges in competing with NVIDIA/AMD RX 7600/RTX 4060 models, it may raise questions as to Intel’s motivation for introducing a new card.

Today, Intel is unveiling the A580 GPU priced at $179. This model is tailored for entry-level to mid-range gaming, offering good performance at a 1080p resolution with medium to high graphics settings. The card boasts 24 Xe-Cores and is equipped with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. It’s designed with a board power of 185W, which is 40W lower than that of the Arc A750. Worth noting that this is also 10W more than announced in 2022.

Officially, the card operates at a GPU clock speed of 1.7 GHz, but all three launch partners are presenting versions with a boosted 2.0 GHz specification. Intel is releasing the card in three distinct designs, which include the ASRock Challenger, Sparkle Orc, and Gunnir Index. According to Intel, these cards will be available for purchase on a global scale.

The card has already been tested and here are some of the early reviews.

Intel provides a list of participating retailers, but looks like many of these sites need to be updated.
