Biostar Joins Intel Arc Camp, Preps Arc Video Playing cards

With out a lot fanfare, Biostar has launched its first graphics card primarily based on Intel Arc graphics processors. The add-in-board is geared toward entry-level gaming PCs, and is admittedly not very outstanding itself. However the truth that Intel has a brand new AIB associate, and that Biostar now has graphics playing cards powered by GPUs from all three main distributors, are necessary developments for the broader business.

The Biostar Intel Arc A380 graphics card demonstrated at Computex 2023 is predicated on the ACM-G11 processor and incorporates a minimalistic design with a slightly simplistic single-fan cooler. The AIB doesn’t want any auxiliary PCIe energy connectors and can match into the overwhelming majority of desktops which might be new or already in use (together with Mini-ITX one), so it may be used each for brand new PCs and for upgrades. It’s unclear whether or not Biostar plans to supply these merchandise worldwide.

The board first appeared in a Biostar video posted on May 31, 2023, after which was spotted on the firm’s Computex sales space by a WCCFTech editor Hassan Mujtaba.

Whereas Intel is without doubt one of the world’s most acknowledged manufacturers, its fashionable entry into the discrete GPU recreation has not been met with plenty of enthusiasm from the highest video card producers. As of at the moment, Intel has quite a few companions constructing AIBs powered by its standalone graphics processors, together with ASRock, Acer, Gigabyte, Gunnir, MSI, and Sparkle. The addition of Biostar on this case looks like an necessary occasion for Intel’s GPU enterprise, particularly in going after the entry-level phase of the market.

Talking of Biostar, it’s noteworthy that whereas the corporate has launched its Radeon RX 7900-series and Radeon RX 7600-series graphics playing cards, it but has to supply any new merchandise primarily based on NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40-series GPUs. Actually, it’s unclear whether or not the corporate has plans for any of those in any respect and its presence at Computex has not shed any mild on its intentions.
