The Intel Arc A380 graphics card has slower memory than Intel originally stated

Intel has changed the list of specifications for the Arc A380 desktop graphics gas pedal.
The manufacturer now specifies that the graphics card features GDDR6 memory at 15.5Gbps per pin, whereas previously it was 16Gbps.
This means that the bandwidth of the entire memory subsystem is not 192 GB/s, but 186 GB/s.
As mentioned earlier, the first unreferenced version of Arc A380 from Chinese company Gunnir had 15.5 Gb/s memory bandwidth which appeared to be lower than initially announced Intel specifications for this model.
As it turns out, the lower memory speed is actually a reference value, and the data listed on the Intel website about the memory performance was incorrect.Image source: VideoCardz / IntelIntel also clarified the situation with HDMI 2.1 support for the Arc A380 graphics card.
Novelty indeed can work with it, but the question of its availability will depend on the specific manufacturer of this or that version of the video card.
That is why Gunnir Arc A380 Photon OC is equipped with a less advanced HDMI 2.0 connector.Image source: VideoCardzIntel Arc A380 is the first desktop graphics gas pedal on Xe-HPG architecture.
At the moment, the graphics card is only available in China.
When the product appears in other markets - Intel does not specify.
This is the youngest model of the Arc Alchemist series, whose performance is comparable to the slowest AMD graphics card - Radeon RX 6400.
For the Chinese market, the Intel Arc A380 is priced at around $150.
The gas pedal has already appeared on some Chinese online marketplaces, but sellers have jacked up the price to $500.
