Sparkle A380/A310 Genie series in the works
Sparkle confirms its commitment to launching the full Intel Arc GPU lineup.
Sparkle has reaffirmed its commitment to the gaming GPU market by announcing a new partnership with Intel. While the company has primarily focused on external, MXM, and industrial GPUs in the past decade, the introduction of the Arc Alchemist GPU series has prompted Sparkle to develop a comprehensive lineup of GPUs.
Already, Sparkle has unveiled its Arc A770/A750 TITAN, ORC, and A380 ELF series, some of which are already available through US retailers at reasonable prices, albeit not the lowest.
The news of Sparkle’s potential release of new cards is not entirely surprising. During the Computex, the company showcased their upcoming water-cooled Arc A770 and low-profile Arc A3 series. Although the latter was initially presented as an ‘industrial’ design, it is now showcased as commercial designs under the GENIE badge.
Sparkle plans to launch the Arc A380 and Arc A310 series, which will feature either 8 Xe-Cores combined with 6GB GDDR6 96-bit memory or 6 Xe-Cores with 4GB of GDDR6 memory and 64-bit. While these GPUs may not be exceptionally powerful, their extensive display connectivity options and robust Intel video encoders make them suitable for servers, particularly those involved in video transcoding.
