Intel Arc A380 desktop GPUs finally make it to the US – but it might be too late


Intel’s Arc A380 is on sale in the US at last – well, almost. ASRock’s Challenger Arc A380 6GB desktop graphics card is available to order on (opens in new tab), with an expected launch date of August 22. Shockingly (read: not shockingly), it hasn’t sold out at the pre-order stage.

The Arc GPU line has been having serious problems for a while now, becoming a worrying black hole of wasted investments for Intel and its CEO Pat Gelsinger. With estimated losses of $3.5 billion, and analysts suggesting that Intel should sell off its discrete GPU operation, it’s hard to see how this new card will turn these turbulent tides.
