The Intel Arc A580 is based on a 6nm ACM-G10 GPU, the same one in the Arc 7- series, but has 24 out of 32 Xe Cores, leaving it with 384 Execution Units (EUs), or 3,072 unified shared, 24 Ray Tracing units, 384 XMX AI cores, 192 TMUs, and 96 ROPs. It also comes with 8GB of 16Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory interface or a maximum memory bandwidth of 512GB/s.

In terms of performance, the Intel Arc A580 delivers a decent punch at its price point, putting it somewhere around the AMD RX 6600 8GB graphics card. The RTX 4060 8GB is still significantly faster, but that one falls into the Arc A750 realm.

At the end of the day, the Arc A580 does what it should be doing, pushing enough frames at 1080p resolution. While some graphics cards, like the newly released RX 7600 or the RTX 4060 are faster, those are also much more expensive at around $240 and $280, respectively. At $179, the Arc A580 could be a popular graphics card for entry-level and 1080p gaming.
