ASRock Arc A770 Phantom Gaming and Arc A750 Challenger Graphics Cards Launched

You might have heard that Intel recently entered the graphics card market with its Arc series GPU. Intel’s Arc A770 and A750 are mid-range GPUs designed to compete with NVIDIA and AMD’s mid-range offerings, like the RTX 3060. These new graphics cards are generally good for their price, but there are a lot of things Intel needs to polish to better compete. Nevertheless, it’s a good start for Intel. These new Arc GPUs started selling worldwide, and ASRock recently released its Arc 770 Phantom Gaming and Arc A750 Challenger graphics cards. Check out more details from the official news release below.

ASRock Arc 770 Phantom Gaming and Arc 750 Challenger Graphics Cards Released

ASRock today launched its Arc “Alchemist” A770 and A750 custom-design graphics cards. These include the A770 Phantom Gaming OC and the A750 Challenger OC. The A770 maxes out the 6 nm ACM-G10 silicon, featuring all 32 Xe Cores (4,096 unified shaders); besides faster 17.5 Gbps GDDR6 memory; whereas the A750 gets 28 Xe Cores (3,584 unified shaders), and 16 Gbps GDDR6 memory. Both of ASRock’s cards come with 8 GB of memory across a 256-bit wide memory bus, there’s no 16 GB version of the A770 Phantom Gaming.

The ASRock A770 Phantom Gaming features a premium, RGB-illuminated cooling solution that’s also found in the company’s Radeon RX 6000-series Phantom Gaming graphics cards. This card also offers a factory overclock of 2.20 GHz compared to a 2.10 GHz reference. The cooler features a dual fin-stack heatsink with five 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes that make indirect contact with the GPU over a copper base plate. The dual ball-bearing fans come with an idle fan-stop. There’s a switch to manually turn off RGB lighting.

The ASRock A750 Challenger OC features a more straightforward design, with a simple aluminum fin-stack heatsink that’s ventilated by two fans instead of three on the A770 Phantom Gaming. You get a handy factory overclock of 2.20 GHz vs. 2.05 GHz reference. The cooler features four copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU. Both cards feature the same set of power connectors—two 8-pin PCIe power; and feature a PCI-Express 4.0 x16 host interface.

Both the A750 Challenger OC and the A770 Phantom Gaming OC offer at least one HDMI 2.1 port, which means they’re using a protocol-converter chip to turn one of the DisplayPort 2.0 interfaces into an HDMI 2.1. The A750 Challenger OC interestingly offers two HDMI ports, one of which is the native HDMI 2.0b port from the GPU, and the other an HDMI 2.1 through the PCON. The DisplayPorts on both cards meet DisplayPort 2.0 specs.

ASRock Arc 770 and 750 Pricing and Availability

The A770 Phantom Gaming is priced at USD $329, while the A750 Challenger OC goes for $289, both of which are at Intel’s MSRP.
