The A770 In All Its Beauty
One of the most important highlights is the Arc A770 from Intel. The Founders Edition (FE) design features a beautiful blue design as an embodiment for Intel’s theme. To comply with the modern designing standards, RGB is included, lighting up the ‘intel ARC‘ logo. The intricate shroud design leaves no room for error in both thermals and beauty.
A simplistic yet professional approach has been taken by team blue. A black-themed shroud with the Intel logo paired with their trademark colouring slapped on, indeed makes for an interesting design choice.
For thermals, two fans with a slight sprinkle of RGB have been used. The overall dark blue light from the PC reflecting off the GPU embellishes the look of the A770.
On unpacking the box, you will be greeted with the beautiful GPU in an upright position. Above the GPU, you will find the official documentation for Intel’s Arc A770 titled as ‘Let’s Play‘.
As a recap, the Arc A770 features Intel’s ACM-G10 GPU powered by 32 Xe Cores and 4096 ALUs. The GPU ships with 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM running across a 256-bit memory interface. The total card power is assumed to be near 250W, however, the demo shows the GPU consuming around 190W.
Although, we are still limited in terms of information by Intel’s Q3 2022 launch plans. Team blue states that they will share more information with us as time goes on in regards to the availability, price and performance of the Arc GPUs.
