Matrox is a Canadian company that provides hardware and solutions for graphics, video editing and image processing. A few years ago, a wider partnership with NVIDIA was announced, under which they began to develop proprietary graphics cards for professional use that used NVIDIA Quadro chips. Now the company has announced that it has entered into cooperation with Intel in the graphics chip sector, under which chips from the ARC Alchemist family will be used. Three models of LUMA graphics cards will join the company’s offer.
Matrox has announced the launch of three LUMA graphics cards based on Intel Alchemist chips. We are talking about Matrox LUMA A380, LUMA A310F and LUMA A310 models.
SPARKLE returns with Intel ARC graphics cards. What card models will the manufacturer offer us?
The new Matrox graphics cards are relatively small constructions – only the Matrox LUMA A380 is full-size, equipped with 4 DisplayPort 2.1 ports. The Matrox LUMA A310F is a low profile card, but still using a single fan. The last of the models – LUMA A310 is also a low-profile card, but without a fan, so it works fully passively. The LUMA A380 uses a full Intel ACM-G11 chip with 8 Xe blocks and 1024 FP32 processors, as well as 6 GB of GDDR6 memory on a 96-bit bus. The other two models offer a trimmed ACM-G11 core with 6 Xe blocks and 768 stream processors. In this case, there is also 4 GB of GDDR6 memory on a 64-bit bus.
Matrox D1450 and D1480 – new cards based on NVIDIA Quadro chips
Low-profile Matrox LUMA A310F and LUMA A310 graphics cards, due to their small dimensions, are equipped with 4 mini DisplayPort 2.1 ports. All chips shown offer support for up to four 4K/120Hz displays, up to two 8K/60Hz displays, or up to four 5K/120Hz displays. You can also connect up to four 5K/60Hz displays with full HDR support. looking after announcements, the cards in question are rather positioned as solutions for business, rather than even for basic gaming. TDP factors are respectively 75 W (Matrox LUMA A380), 50 W (LUMA A310F) and 30 W (LUMA A310). Prices for individual card models have not been disclosed.
