Intel was reported to be planning to launch the Intel Arc graphics by June but has restricted that launch to China only and with the Arc A380 being a partner card option as well and not available for retail. That has changed recently as Newegg has opened up sale of ASRock’s Arc A380 for the western market.
The Intel Arc Graphics team have been busy doing press as well visiting Canada-based LMG and other Youtubers to discuss arc as well as promote the higher-end Arc A7 series graphics cards which have yet to debut.
Curiously enough, MKBHD has uploaded a video of a built PC featuring the Arc A770 running which you can see below:
Its still unsure when Intel is planning to release these GPUs but with Raptor Lake on the horizon, Intel may be planning a 2-prong announcement and go for a 13th-gen Intel + Arc graphics on the same launch slate or at least time table.
