Chinese GPU maker Glenfly Tech Co., Ltd. has published an official product page outlining the features and specifications of the Glenfly Arise GT-10C0 graphics card. According to the information, it is the first product using a GPU developed and designed by Glenfly. It isn't potent, with its FP32 TFLOPS figure of 1.5, similar to the old Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti or AMD Radeon Vega 8 iGPU.

It is good to have an official product page now available in the wake of scrappy bits of information and imagery on Chinese social media. However, some of the important specs, and real-world performance indicators, remain elusive.

The Arise GT-10C0 competes in the category with discrete graphics card minnows such as the Intel Arc A380, AMD Radeon RX 6400, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1630.

The nearest competitor to the Glenfly card is Nvidia’s – if we consider the FP32 performance stats. By this same metric, the Chinese 28nm GPU is similar to the old GTX 750 Ti or AMD Vega 8 integrated graphics. We know very little about the underlying GPU architecture for the Chinese GPU, and even basic specs like the number of GPU cores and clocks are not shared. However, sharing these specs at this point wouldn’t be very illuminating, as we have no Glenfly Arise reference point that has been thoroughly independently tested as a base for extrapolation.

Last month we saw some Geekbench tests for what was reported to be a Glenfly Arise 1020 GPU. It isn’t easy to ascertain whether that was a Geekbench misreport of the Arise GT-10C0 or something else. However, it came with 2GB of VRAM, as we see it is an option for the Arise GT-10C0. Furthermore, the Geekbench OpenCL benchmark scores indicate that the Arise 1020 may be an even worse performer than the 10C0 if it isn’t the same GPU performing very severely due to drivers/software and similar lack of maturity issues.

In summary, the new information is encouraging, as it indicates that the first Glenfly Arise desktop graphics cards are getting ready for launch. Fingers crossed for an informative third-party comparative review published on a Chinese tech site, forum, or video sharing site like Bilibili in the coming weeks.

    📎 C'mon man, Don't you want to let the Chinese government see what you see through your video card?

    I would still want someone reliable like gamer nexus to test it though.
    I wondered for a while how much truth was in those Chinese cpu/gpu's ....

    The arrival of the official product page encourages hopes of availability. TFLOPS performance sits between the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 1630, but there is likely much driver and software optimization work.
