Sparkle Arc A770 GPU concept with a liquid cooling block
The first liquid-cooled ARC A770 graphics card is in the works.
The most high-end Arc GPU is getting a water block. Sparkle has surprised the world by introducing a new line of graphics cards. The company has returned to the GPU market with a help from Intel Arc graphics. It is worth mentioning that Sparkle introduced all the Arc SKUs that Intel has released thus far, including the A770, A750, A380, and A310. However, some of them were only shown at Computex this week.
Sparkle are clearly not containing themselves to the entry-level market. The company has already announced and listed on Newegg cards such as Arc A750 and A380 GPUs, but models like A770 TITAN were only shown at Computex booth.
Interestingly, one of the prototypes features a water block. The “Arc A770 Watercooling Concept” features a Bitspower waterblock, which can also be purchased separately. The name for this card is clearly not final, and it is unclear if this model will ever reach retail.
The company is also working on A310 Industrial Low Profile GPU. The name suggests it will not be a card for the DIY market, but this model solidifies Sparkle lineup with full spectrum of Arc GPUs. This is not the first low-profile Arc GPU though, as MSI and Matrox have already introduced their cards before.
At least three Sparkle GPUs can already be found on Newegg, but none of the cards is in stock. Pricing ranges from $139 (Arc A380) to $259 (Arc A750). The A770 with a waterblock is not even listed on the company website, however once that happens we will provide an update.
