Nvidia seems to have hit on some big news that could have a significant impact on its future chip sales and promotion.
In accordance with GamersNexus, EVGA has terminated its contract with Nvidia and will stop all production of graphics cards, including the RTX series and any other cards. The publication states that the reason for the dismissal was “disrespectful behavior, including”.
The report goes on to say that EVGA “will not currently explore a relationship with AMD or Intel” and will exit the graphics card market entirely. Employees were told they would be taken care of, but the details of this are disputed as the company has already stopped its projects.
One such project was about 20 EVT samples of the EVGA RTX 4090 FTW3 cards, which will not go into production. His KINGPIN cards were also cancelled.
What could this mean for Nvidia?
The loss of EVGA is a big blow to Nvidia, as it is not only one of the latter’s largest graphics card manufacturers, but is also used to produce the sample chips that promote these chips.
And the timing couldn’t be worse for Team Green with the upcoming GTC 2022 event on Tuesday 20 September. The reason is particularly important since it reportedly has to do with how badly Nvidia treated EVGA employees.
It remains to be seen how much of an impact this will have on the tech giant, but it could cause some serious industry turmoil. And while EVGA won’t be compatible with AMD or Intel right now, that could always change in the future.
