Intel ARC A380 graphics now have their first-ever water block
Intel Arc 92W GPU Water Block
Intel ARC with liquid cooling.
Bykski I-GNA380-X GPU BLOCK is a custom water block for GUNNIR Arc A380 Photon OC graphics card, so far the only desktop Arc model available for sale. At this time it is unclear whether GUNNIR PCB is a fully custom design or, which would make more sense at this price point, based on the Intel reference layout. Therefore, one cannot be sure that the Bykski A380 water block will only fit one model.
For now, this full cover block only supports GUNNIR PCBs with ACM-G11 GPU and 6GB GDDR6 memory. This board has an 8-pin power connector that powers 92W, just slightly more than Intel’s 75W TGP benchmark. One thing is certain though, these power needs don’t usually require fancy cooling solutions, let alone liquid cooling.
At first glance, this water block is single-slot, so some A380 users may find this block attractive for smaller, quieter builds. But the last time we checked, there weren’t many users to begin with.
At the time of writing this article, the official product page did not mention any price for this water block.
