For the Arc A-Series GPUs launch, Ryan Shrout and Tom Petersen are leaving no stone unturned. 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, which started mid-July.
The A770 has been dismantled to show its 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and the full ACM-G10 Alchemist GPU but A770 also comes with 8GB. The design also features four flattened heatpipes, a large copper vapor chamber, heatsink stack, 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.
A770 Limited Edition features four independent RGB zones that may be tweaked via software and generates a noise level of 39 dBA. Only the A770 Limited Edition will have access to the RGB capabilities, although third-party graphics cards will support them (presumably with the Arc Control software).
Also covered was Arc GPU clocks and overclocking. GPU manufacturers seldom mention overclocking, much less claim to be able to accomplish it. Petersen engages in a little overclocking session on the A750 Limited Edition by fiddling with Arc Control (not A770).
The power limit is raised from 185W to 228W, and the voltage/frequency curve is adjusted to achieve 2719 MHz in Hitman 3. The GPU gets to 81 degrees Celsius while using the factory air cooling, and the VRAM hits 88 degrees Celsius.
Launching by “summer 2022” was initially planned; however, this is now seen as quite unlikely. However, it would be unfortunate if these cards weren’t accessible by the end of the month.
