Pros: Oversized fan and aluminum heatsink for cooling Runs relatively quiet Decent overclocking room Full Asrock support Good performance for price point compared to AMD and Nvidia equivalents
Cons: Buggy drivers still need improvement
Overall Review: This product has intrigued me since launch so when I was able to finally pick one up I did. The card itself is slightly bigger than most "ITX" cards I've encountered with a pretty beefy aluminum heatsink and a slightly larger than average fan. There is zero RGB on this card and it requires one PCIE lead for aux power. Using the newest (as of 8/27/2022) BETA drivers there are still some bugs to work out. I got a few errors trying to run the control software and certain benchmarking programs are problematic like Superposition which stutters quite frequently. Using Timespy, performance is right around 4400 GPU which places it solidly between a 1650 and 1650 super which actually is a good price:performance for this card. This was tested with an 11400 + 2x8GB 3200 ram. I played a bit of World of Warcraft and Fallout 76 at 1080p and performance was right in line which means solid but nor remarkable. 6GB of memory is very capable for 1080p. 1440p is a stretch for many titles depending on settings and 4k is unrealistic obviously. If you're looking for what I think is a solid 1080p card that is still ironing out early adopter bugs and issues, this is a solid choice for what it provides. If you want mature drivers and something that is ready to go across just about every game and suite and/or you seek greater than 1080p gaming, you might do better to look elsewhere. Solid 4/5
Overall Review: I was so, so excited to finally try out Intel Arc graphics. Unfortunately, this thing is a disaster. It only actually output a signal to one of three monitors I tried, and only on one of three motherboards/systems I tried it in. Spent hours swapping parts, trying different settings, to minimal success. I got it to boot into Windows ONCE on one of the systems and after installing the Arc driver and rebooting it no longer worked on that system. Then I put it in yet another system and I got into BIOS but after I boot to any device (whether it be USB or the SSD) it simply didn't output anything. I tried different cables across every single DisplayPort and HDMI output on the GPU. Not sure if this is just a defective card or the whole arthitecture is just defective, but I'm super frustrated. Ended up going to a local big box retailer and buying an RX6600 and hey, that worked on the first try.
Dear Valued ASRock Customer, Thank you for purchase and review. Please check if the BIOS setting meet and driver installation steps below. BIOS setting: CSM [Disable] Above 4G Decoding [Enable]. For Intel - C.A.M. (Clever Access Memory) [Enable]. For AMD - Re-Size BAR Support [Enable]. For Driver installation: Please boot the system to / install the operating system and then install the graphics driver. After the graphics driver installation is finished, wait at least 2 minutes for driver update finish, DO NOT shut down during the process. After 2 minutes, reboot the system for graphics driver. Please note: If the driver has been installed under OS, please DO NOT shutting down or restart immediately after booting, because Intel graphics driver might access the flash memory of graphics cards when entering OS. If you have any technical or warranty inquiry in the future, please contact us at https://event.asrock.com/tsd.asp We will assist you shortly.

Pros: If you can only afford one video card for gaming, you would probably be better served to get something with broad compatibility with legacy APIs from AMD / Nvidia. With that said, I think Intel is on the right track and if they stay committed to sorting out compatibility with older APIs, they will have a competitive product. I bought this as a curiosity to see how the first gen GPUs from Intel perform and I plan to hang on to it to see how the drivers improve over time. To Intel's credit, they have been very up front about what to expect from the card and from my experience there were no surprises. Overall, the card works well out of the box, installed in an Asus Prime B460M-A motherboard with an i5-10400. I turned on resizable bar as suggested by Intel to get maximum performance. The driver install is easy and like another reviewer mentioned, I like that you do not need to create an account to install the driver. Make no mistake, this is a budget / entry level card and performance is on the lower end. It will run Apex Legends at 60+ fps without issue, but it struggles a bit with Star Wars BF II which is a little jerky at times. To my surprise, after a rough start, it ran Battlefield 2042 with FPS in the mid 40s but very playable. Again, it is an entry level card and seems closer to a GTX 1650, but without the broad compatibility. The card is efficient, only drawing 55 watts at peak and it runs and quiet.
Overall Review: Good first effort by Intel. Buyer beware if you need compatibility with older titles or games requiring significant gpu performance.
Overall Review: Hoping this will be the first of many Intel dGPUs
Pros: Good Price.
Cons: Doesn't work.
Overall Review: I ordered 2 of these, to evaluate for DaVinci Resolve GPU use. Just got them today. I have an HP z420 running Windows 10 Pro 64 with 32 GB RAM and an NVIDIA RTX6000 as one of many testbed Resolve systems I use for support. I've removed the RTX6000 and installed one of the A380 ARC cards in the same PCIe slot. On power up, I get nothing out of the DisplayPorts or HDMI port. I didn't expect Windows to work off the bat, without some driver reloading, but I expected to see BIOS boot screens. But nothing. Tried the second card. Still nothing. The card has an 8 pin power connector, and that's connected. The fan on the card spins. Obviously, if the system can run an RTX6000 card, it's got enough power for an A380 card, so not a power issue. Overall, pretty disappointing. I've got an email into ASRock support to see what they say.
Dear Valued ASRock Customer, Thank you for purchase and review. Please try disable CSM setting in the mainboard's BIOS. Reseat the card firmly with it's PCIE power. Check the monitor and its cable is firmly plugged. Set the appropriate output source on the monitor.

Cons: Keeps putting my desktop to a black screen. No support for older games
Overall Review: Like so many I was so excited to get this card. Unfortunately its got a long way to go. Keeps crashing my computer, drivers are awful at best. Had to return it because it just isnt stable. Will try again in a while, hoping intel can figure the gpu market outfor now stay away.
Dear Valued ASRock Customer, We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. For the crash issues, please try following. • Load the BIOS setting default. • Test with 1 x memory, switching another memory if it's same issue. • Check the CPU is not overheating. • Download and install the VGA driver link below.

Pros: For the 5-15min it works in a game, it seems like a decent low-end card. Ran both Destiny 2 and No Man's Sky at 1080p with medium settings at around 60 FPS.
Cons: Anywhere from 5-15min in game, the card hard locks, and it's not just a game crash. The screen is filled with vertical bars of color and the PC hard locks.
Overall Review: Based on the failures I'm having, no. I'm going to RMA and try again.
Dear Valued ASRock Customer, Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Please check the BIOS setting is enabled Above 4G decoding and Re-Size BAR Support (on AMD board) or C.A.M. enable (on Intel board).

Pros: -Worked -Played games sorta -Cost vs proposed performance level -The Driver utility didn't ask for my blood type, personal interests, age, browsing history unlike team green. -Driver Utility has Afterburner like features and as a widget, while in game, which is neat
Cons: -Lots of dropped frames -Finding drivers at first sent me to July drivers, the August one is what you want (at time of writing) This wasn't exactly Asrock's problem as Intel is just getting out the gate into the GPU market
Overall Review: -I used a 6th gen intel I7, 8 / 16 gigs of ram for testing, and ssd for boot and game installs -Could get an average framerate like intel says i should, But i get a ton of stuttering and frame drops for over 2 seconds while gaming in Halo. Rocket League demanded 16 Gb ram unlike the 1650 i was comparing this to. -I really want this card to have matured drivers and will be on the lookout for them. I want team blue to succeed in the GPU market. -Today I do not recommend anyone buying the card as a primary GPU but as a AV1 codec encoder. Its fairly snazzy. Gaming is almost there. - - As for anyone wondering why my test rig was 6th gen, I have 1st, 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, and 12th gen to play with. And Ryzen 1st -5th gen 3, 5, and 7's AND Thread-Rippers to toss this at. So my question back to you is, why spend $400 - $4000 on a CPU and not the same or more on a GPU?... Has intel said this GPU only does what it can on a 12th or better I9 CPU only? Who does that?
Overall Review: I buy video cards a lot! I like to try different cards for different games and systems. I could not get along with this card. Getting it to work? Eventually in 3 different pc setups. Playing a game? Not so easy. The settings for getting various games to even open was unbelievably frustrating. Wow, I returned it after 2 days. Maybe I'll try Intel again one of these days. Maybe.
