GTX 1650S performance for the Intel ARC A380?


No we are not talking about an airplane, but the next entry-level GPU from Intel that would offer GTX 1650 Super performance.

Intel ARC A380: 128 EU at 2.45 GHz?

Arriving on the market of graphics cards occupied mostly by Nvidia and AMD, Intel will have to find its place of course at the level of performance and price, but also on a nomenclature that will recognize the GPU.

Last September, a table had been shared with the different ways to define the Alchemist range. Intel Arc/Alchemist Nomenclature

This first generation of Arc graphics cards called A-series, would then use a nomenclature of type: aXXX, with the first letter designating the generation and three numbers designating the model of GPU. And thanks to @TUM_APISAK, we learn today that the entry level of Alchemist would be called A380.

The Intel ARC A380 would be the smallest card with 128 EU (8 Xe core and 1024 shaders), but with high frequencies of over 2.45 GHz, thus playing at the level of AMD cards using TSMC etchings (6nm for Intel and 7nm for AMD) allowing to go very high compared to the 8nm Samsung from Nvidia.

The card would use 6 GB of GDDR6 on a bus probably at 96 bits, giving a bandwidth of 192 GB / s. The performance would be close to the GTX 1650 Super from Nvidia.

Two weeks ago, a leak already spoke of performance around the GTX 1650 Super with frequencies between 2.2 and 2.5 GHz and with 6 GB of GDDR6. This card would have a TDP of only 75W and a price below $200 if we believe the estimates.
