With Elden Ring set to get its first DLC expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, this week, Intel partner Gunnir has produced an exclusive range of themed GPUs with boosted performance, ideal for even the most maidenless of playthroughs. Both the Intel Arc A770 Photon and Arc A750 Photon are being re-released, with tweaked specs and a gorgeous redesign.

That said, there is a caveat: the GPUs likely aren’t going to be available in the US or Europe any time soon. As new products in Gunnir’s “Photon x Asian Games” range, they are aimed primarily at an Asian audience. That’s not to say that American or European Elden Ring fans won’t ever see this GPU, it just may take a while to get to them – and certainly not in time for Shadow of the Erdtree‘s launch on the 20th June.

A nice design for Elden Ring fans?

The base design of the GPUs is familiar to any PC enthusiast: both the Intel Arc A7750 Photon and Arc A750 Photon retain the standard graphics card design, but now with gorgeous golden detailing and a faded (one could even say “Tarnished”) color scheme.

Each fan has been embossed with the game’s logo, and the Photon logo has even been Elden Ring-ified. Finally, the design is finished off with the DLC’s key art of the mysterious Messmer sat atop his throne. If you were looking for a custom Elden Ring GPU, it doesn’t get better than this.

Intel Arc A770 Photon & Arc A750 Photon: Specs

As mentioned, the re-release of the Arc A770 and Arc A750 Photon are both set to have slightly adjusted specifications to Intel’s base model. Specifically in terms of clocking, Videocardz are reporting that the Elden Ring variant of the Arc A750 Photon is confirmed to have a 350MHz higher clock speed at 2.4GHz. As far as we know, all other specifications are the same, as detailed below:

So if you can’t get enough of the Lands Between and are looking to upgrade your graphics card any time soon, this Gunnir GPU is certainly one to keep an eye out for. Though European and American PC players will likely have to wait a little longer, patience is the core virtue of any Tarnished.
