Are Xfx and Evga turning their backs on Nvidia?
According to the Inquirer, Nvidia's partners defect to AMD. After Gainward, talk is about Evga and Xfx canceling their exclusiveness.
About a month ago we reported, that Gainward - a brand of Nvidia's biggest partner Palit - would run their product array double tracked and offer Radeons in addition to the Geforce cards. We can only speculate about the reasons for this decision. Possibly the profit from such bigamy is bigger or the board partners of Nvidia are not happy with the margin of the chips.
Over the next weeks it will be revealed, if Xfx and Evga will sell AMD cards in the future, too. Companies like Xfx with their OC cards and Evga with the enhanced warranty were missed by the fans of the red side.
