Sparkle returns with Intel ARC graphics
The company announces three new custom graphics cards based exclusively on Intel Arc series.
There have been no GPU updates from Sparkle for many years. The company has completely shifted its business towards embedded solutions. However, starting from last month, Sparkle has begun to reestablish its presence on social media. Today the company confirms it has become an official Intel Arc AIC partner and introduces its first cards based on the Alchemist series.
All three cards feature the same blue color scheme and a very similar design indeed. The TITAN is equipped with three fans and has the highest clock (up to 2300 MHz), while Orc is a dual-fan design with a 2200 MHz setting. Both cards are based on Intel Arc A750 GPU based on ACM-G10 GPU with 28 Xe-Cores, and both offer 8GB of GDDR6 memory.
The small ELF is based on Arc A380 GPU, and it is not a factory-overclocked solution. This card features 8 Xe-Cores and 6GB of GDDR6 memory. Other than confirming the basic specs like clocks or dimensions, there is no data on power consumption, or non-standard TDP applied to any of the Sparkle Arc series.
With today’s launch, Sparkle joins ranks with Gunnir, Acer, ASRock, MSI and Gigabyte, which are currently the only brands offering Intel Arc graphics cards. Now, who would have thought that Sparkle will launch TITAN before NVIDIA?
