The Tokyo Game Show kicked off today and, with the continued strength of PC gaming worldwide, you shouldn’t be surprised to see news regarding hardware and software for our favorite platform today and over the weekend (it wraps up on Sunday). A case in point is the comprehensive exhibit from ASRock, which surprised the tech press by showcasing the very first add-in-card partner design for an Intel Arc A750 graphics card.

On its website the Japanese source says that the ASRock branded A750 card would be joining the Challenger family, alongside the Arc A380 which was launched a few weeks ago. The newer and significantly more powerful Challenger comes with a twin axial fan cooler, and is two slots wide, says Hermitage Akihabara. It checked to the card carefully from multiple angles and reported that it also featured; twin HDMI outs, twin DP outs, and a pair of 8-pin power inputs.

Hermitage Akihabara highlighted its find in a tweet, which we have embedded above for your convenience. In the Japanese blurb, the source says that as well as this A750 exhibit, there was an area of the ASRock booth where demonstrations of an Arc A770 were being shown. It didn’t mention whether this was an Intel or ASRock branded card, or if it knew. Of course there were also ASRock Challenger Arc A380 graphics cards at the show, with one such card powering an ASRock gaming PC.

What remains unknown is whether the spec of the ASRock Challenger Arc A750 adheres to Intel reference numbers of whether it features faster GPU clocks or memory. Surely, we will see an official launch of discrete desktop Intel Arc cards (other than the A380) “very soon”. In the meantime, please ponder over the reference specs of the Arc desktop family above, and make some time to thumb through our Intel Arc Alchemist: Release Date, Specs, Everything We Know article, which includes many more details and a number of comparative benchmark discussions.
