Desktop graphics card manufacturer EVGA has terminated its agreement as an all-in-board partner with Nvidia after 22 years.
The news of EVGA’s terminated agreement came from GamersNexus, confirming that EVGA has planned to exit the GPU business as early as this past April. EVGA cites disrespectful treatment by Nvidia, shrinking margins, and price increases as the main reasons for terminating the partnership. EVGA finalized its business in the GPU as of June 2022. However, EVGA will continue to serve RMAs and hold inventory of its latest GPUs for the next three years or so.
“EVGA has terminated its relationship with NVIDIA,” EVGA CEO Andrew Han said. “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 will restructure and pursue other revenue streams as it explores the technology market outside of desktop graphics cards. Outside of graphics cards, EVGA manufactures its own power supplies and motherboards.
