Intel Arc discounted in Europe

Just waiting for the raven and the dove to get back 

Chipzilla has been discounting its Arc GPU in Europe even after not really getting it to the shops in time.

For those who came in late. Intel launched the Arc A750 and A770 in mid-October at $290 and $330 for the 8GB models and $350 for the 16GB Limited Edition A770. A few weeks ago it discounted the A750 by $30 even as it announced a driver overhaul that promised major performance improvements.

While the A750 and A770 chips were theoretically available in Europe, they were thin on the ground and pricey. Now it seems that sites that were selling the A750 for €350-380 have now knocked it under €300. The A770 has fallen from the mid- to low-€400s to the high-€300s.

German site Notebooks Billiger has written €70 off the A750 to bring it down to €280. PC21 is matching that price in France and has 1,233 in stock. Both LDLC and Cybertek, also French, have knocked €50 off their prices to bring the A750 down to €310.

In the UK, the land where tomatos are so abundant they prefer turnips, the A750 has been discounted by £70 at Ebuyer to bring the price down to £260. Ebuyer discounted the A770 from £410 to £360. Overclockers UK lowered their A770 listing from £450 to match Ebuyer at £360 and outdid them on the A750 at £250.

Even at its lowered price, the A770 continues to be a harder sell in the face of competition from the RTX 3060 / Ti and RX 6800 / XT. Intel has marketed the A750 much more heavily in the last few months and I'd wager that it's outselling the A770 at a rate of five to one or more.
