SPARKLE has added a pair of new Intel Arc GPUs to its line-up, this time in the form of a few low-profile offerings that would suit SFF builds or something like a home theater PC. The SPARKLE Intel Arc A310 ECO is a low-profile, single-slot, single-fan GPU with a reduced 50W power profile, while the SPARKLE Intel Arc A380 GENIE is a 75W low-profile, dual-slot, dual-fan GPU.

Outside of the awesome all-blue SPARKLE Arc aesthetic, what's impressive is that both don't need anything in the way of external power from a PSU while offering three display outputs with 1 x HDMI and 2 x mini-DisplayPort connectors on the back.

As a 4GB card with only 124 GB/s of memory bandwidth on a 64-bit bus, the SPARKLE Intel Arc A310 ECO isn't designed for gaming, but with AV1 hardware encoding and AI hardware, it should be decent for light workloads. The SPARKLE Intel Arc A380 GENIE includes 6GB of memory on a faster 96-bit bus to handle some low-fidelity gaming.

Still, with both cards being low-profile and tiny, they'd be something to consider for a media server, home-theater PC, or even a tiny little desktop. Pricing and availability are still to be confirmed, but you can find the full specs below and check out our reviews of the following Sparkle Intel Arc GPUs.
