ASRock quietly releases Arc A310 graphics card
Last year, Intel discreetly introduced the Arc A310, arguably the most modestly powered GPU utilizing a novel architecture, intended as a successor to the erstwhile Iris Xe Max (DG1). A select few manufacturers have ventured to release products based on the Arc A310, though their offerings remain limited in variety and volume. For instance, MSI unveiled a product christened “MSI Arc A310 4 GB Low Profile 2X” merely two months ago.
Recently, ASRock graced the market with its iteration termed the “Intel Arc A310 Low Profile 4GB,” boasting dimensions of 169 x 69 x 39 mm. Mirroring MSI’s previous offering, this model adheres to the low-profile specification, featuring a single-slot bracket. The heatsink’s austere charcoal hue exudes an air of understated elegance.
ASRock’s Arc A310 graphic card is equipped with a pair of diminutive fans, engineered to cease rotation under minimal loads, thereby ensuring impeccable silence. Its display outputs are limited to a singular HDMI 2.0b port and a lone DP 2.0 interface. Eschewing the need for external power, the card’s power consumption remains firmly below 75W. At its heart lies the trimmed ACM-G11 chip, outfitted with 6 Xe cores, 96 EU clusters, and supplemented by 4GB of GDDR6 memory. The memory operates at a speed of 15.5 Gbps, confined to a bandwidth of 64-bit.
