Meet Acer's Predator BiFrost ARC A770 graphics card

Acer has officially become one of Intel's OEM partners for their Arc A-series launch, revealing their Predator ARC A770 BiFrost graphics card, a graphics card that features a unique heatsink design. 

This 2.5-slot graphics card from Acer features both a blower-style heatsink fan and a larger, and better illuminated, axial fan. This interesting design approach from Acer gives their Predator BiFrost graphics card a design that's similar to Nvidia's RTX 30 series Founders Edition graphics cards, where one fan is designed to push air out the back of your PC case while the other blows air though the graphics card and out the other side.

Predator Gaming's BiFrost A770 is the first graphics card that we have ever seen to use hybrid cooling fans like this, making us wonder how well this design works and if Predator Gaming will be releasing this graphics card as a standalone product.

Intel's ARC A770 is the company's flagship GPU model, featuring 32 Xe cores and either 8GB or 16GB of GDDR6 memory. Acer's Predator Gaming BiFrost model features two 8-pin power inputs, giving it a higher potential maximum power input than Intel's Limited Edition ARC A770 model (which features a 8-P + 6-pin design). Will Acer's Predator design offer gamers more overclocking headroom?

Currently, Acer, ASRock, Gunnir, and MSI have been confirmed as official Intel board partners for their ARC A-series launch. Intel's ARC A770 graphics card is launching worldwide on October 12th, with prices starting at $329.

Well, at least it looks better than 19 out of 20 NVIDIA 40 series GPUs, GPU manufacturers made plain black bricks for all SKUs this time around... Zorac was the only one with a different design and I did like Zotac's cooler design.Quote
