First Intel Arc A380 graphics card flies to the US for unboxing video
I got my hands on the retail version of the Gunnir Intel Arc A380 Photon 6G OC board. It’s only available in China at the moment, so WW buyers might not see it locally, but the build quality is outstanding. 1080pMed Mainstream Gaming, DX12 Ultimate, AV1 HW Encoding, Solid Value! #IAmIntel pic.twitter.com/88tgxducI9

Shrout posted a tweet, embedded above, which includes a short video of him showing off the packaging and the board itself, as well as a brief demonstration of a second Gunnir Arc A380 Photon board installed and running in a machine. . In the video he has PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and it humbly states that it runs at 1080p (2560×1080, in this case) with medium settings.
It’s not exactly a fascinating demonstration, but then we’re talking about an entry-level GPU that sells for around 1000 RMB (about 150 USD) in China. Shrout declined to say anything about the price or availability of this card or similar cards in the United States. Still, we wouldn’t be surprised if the A380 Photon hits store shelves at your local Micro Center before long.
