Intel announced that it has officially discontinued the Arc A770 Limited Edition (21P01J00BA). The Arc Alchemist graphics card never became one of the best graphics cards out there, but it will still be, but only available in custom AIB models.
Intel generally allows customers to place last-minute orders before discontinuing the product. However, the company has taken a different approach to his Arc A770 Limited Edition case. Product Change Notice (PCN) document Yesterday June 20th was stated as the final discontinued product ordering and shipping date. It’s safe to assume that the last shipments of Arc A770 Limited Edition graphics cards are already shipping to distributors and retailers.
The Arc A770 Limited Edition was officially discontinued after less than a year on the market. As a limited edition product, no one expected Intel to keep producing the Arc A770 Limited Edition forever. Instead, the chipmaker can now prioritize silicon production for his AIB partners.
Intel offers the Arc A770 in both 8GB and 16GB versions, but the limited edition was one of the few 16GB options. Luckily, things have changed since vendors like Acer and old school player Sparkle have stepped in. Arc A770 Limited Edition $349 To $369, depending on which retailer you are considering. Acer Predator BiFrost Intel Arc A770 OC is available in multiple stores. $339So if you love Intel’s design or want to add to your collection, there’s only one reason to choose the Arc A770 Limited Edition. Full graphics card production is clearly not Intel’s forte, so canceling the Arc A770 Limited Edition would easily force the chipmaker to exit and stick to what it does best: silicon production.
The Arc A750 Limited Edition, on the other hand, is safe for now, but discontinuation is imminent. It will likely be Intel’s next limited edition graphics card. Alchemist’s successor, Battlemage, is due out in his 2024, so Intel probably wants to redirect resources to Battlemage. According to some rumors, Intel is reportedly preparing at least two of his Battlemage graphics cards that could be direct replacements for the Arc A750 and Arc A770.
