A surprise from yesterday (October 10th), Intel announced and made immediately available the Intel Arc A580 desktop graphics. Filling up their hardware roster it slots into the middle of their offerings targetting 1080p gaming.
Here's how they currently stack up:
|Graphics Clock(Ghz)||2100 MHz||2050 MHz||1700 Mhz||2000 MHz||2000 MHz|
|Memory||16GB GDDR6||8GB GDDR6||8GB GDDR6||8GB GDDR6||6GB GDDR6||4GB GDDR6|
While those are the reference specs, cards will be available from partners including ASRock, GUNNIR and Sparkle and all three of them are putting out over-clocked versions where they're clocked at 2000 MHz. Pricing starts at $179.
I'm hopeful we will continue to see Intel push their GPU division, as we definitely need more vendors to keep AMD and NVIDIA on their toes. More competition is better for consumers and will keep all vendors pushing forward.
