Ryan Shrout and Tom Petersen leave no stone unturned for the launch of the Arc A-Series GPUs. In-depth ray tracing, XeSS performance, and official A770 and A750 GPU performance have all been made available to us thanks to the marketing tour that began in mid-July.
The A770 has been disassembled to show its 16 GB GDDR6 RAM and the full ACM-G10 Alchemist GPU, but the A770 also comes with 8 GB. The design also features four flattened heat pipes, a large copper vapor chamber, a heat sink and dual axial fans.
The PCB contains one HDMI 2.1 connection, three DisplayPort 2.0 connectors, six GDDR6 modules and six VRM phases. Despite the Limited Edition’s PCON, AIC cards may not support HDMI 2.1 if they do not have the necessary converters.
The A770 Limited Edition features four independent RGB zones that can be adjusted via software and generates a noise level of 39 dBA. Only the A770 Limited Edition has access to the RGB capabilities, although third-party graphics cards will support it (presumably with the Arc Control software).
Arc GPU clocks and overclocking were also discussed. GPU manufacturers rarely mention overclocking, let alone claim they can. Petersen engages in a little overclocking session on the A750 Limited Edition by playing with Arc Control (not A770).
The power limit has been increased from 185W to 228W, and the voltage/frequency curve has been adjusted to reach 2719 MHz in Hitman 3. The GPU reaches 81 degrees Celsius when using the factory air cooling, and the VRAM reaches 88 degrees Celsius.
The launch by “Summer 2022” was initially planned; however, this is now seen as quite unlikely. However, it would be a shame if these cards were not accessible at the end of the month.
