First Impressions of China’s Glenfly Arise 1020 GPU Aren’t Great

We’ve been watching information about Glenfly Arise graphics cards in China appear for at least the last year. Well, the self-proclaimed graphics card enthusiast and collector on Twitter has managed to get a sample of his Glenfly Arise 1020 from China. Testing is ongoing. Twitter of Lechzwerk The feed has brought us some new benchmark results. But the West’s first card (maybe?) definitely has some issues.

Starting with the good news, there are enthusiasts outside of China who are testing one of these graphics cards in apps, games and benchmarks that we are all familiar with. This makes it easier to compare to his existing Nvidia, AMD and Intel GPUs.

Lechtswerg shared some well-shot photos of the simple-looking Glenfrey Arise 1020 today. The PCB is sparsely populated and looks like it would fit on a low profile bracket. The cooler appears to be a simple model designed for 50W and below. He has only two connectors. The old VGA monitor connector and the new HDMI output.

In other words, it’s pretty much the same card we reported about this time last year, with an image shared by a China-based Bilibili user. That card looked very similar to the reference model pictured above.

In early testing of the Glenfly Arise 1020, Löschzwerg seemed disappointed when just launching the GPU-Z tool caused a system freeze. This is not a good start, but strange things can happen when GPU-Z performs low-level hardware accesses and tries to fetch data from an unknown GPU. The Project PhysX benchmark also dropped spectacularly when he used the Shanghai Zhaoxin Semiconductor Company graphics card.

I had even better luck, especially with the old 3DMark graphics benchmark tool. 3D mark 11. Löschzwerg commented that successfully running this benchmark demonstrated the Glenfly Arise 1020 to outperform the Moore Threads MTT S80.
