EVGA has terminated its partnership with NVIDIA because of “disrespectful treatment,” according to reports from popular hardware YouTubers that include Gamers Nexus and JayzTwoCents. The company is not only “downsizing imminently,” but also exiting the video card market entirely, reports Gamer Nexus’ Steve Burke, who provided a list of highlights teasing what’s to come for one of the best-known GPU manufacturers.
- EVGA will cease all video card manufacturing operations.
- Existing customers will remain supported by EVGA’s warranties.
- EVGA has withheld inventory to help replace and fulfill cards as needed.
- EVGA expects to run out of RTX 30-series video cards by end of year.
- EVGA is staying in business.
- EVGA is not selling its business.
- EVGA will NOT expand into new product categories.
- NVIDIA was notified in April of 2022.
- EVGA has thus far not entertained the idea of Intel or AMD partnership.
- EVGA finished engineering samples of RTX 40-series cards, but will – not be selling them.
- EVGA claims that employees will be reallocated.
From Gamers Nexus:
EVGA has terminated its relationship with NVIDIA. EVGA will no longer be manufacturing video cards of any type, citing a souring relationship with NVIDIA as the cause (among other reasons that were minimized). EVGA will not be exploring relationships with AMD or Intel at this time, and the company will be downsizing imminently as it exits the video card market. Customers will still be covered by EVGA policies, but EVGA will no longer make RTX or other video cards. The company already made ~20 EVT samples of EVGA RTX 4090 FTW3 cards, but will not be moving to production and has killed all active projects pertaining to cards — including KINGPIN cards.
“EVGA is one of the top NVIDIA authorized partners in channel sales throughout North America,” reads a portion of the company’s About Us page, although that will presumably be updated with something that doesn’t involve green team pretty soon. The company was founded over two decades ago on April 13, 1999.
