According to Gamers Nexus, computer hardware company EVGA Corporation has cut ties with Nvidia due to irresponsible treatment.
The news may shake up the video card industry, considering EVGA and NVIDIA have been collaborating for years to develop sought-after equipment. Gamers Nexus said the report of the news was top secret and came during a visit to EVGA's headquarters.
Andrew Han, the CEO of EVGA, addressed Gamers Nexus about the move.
So I dont want people to speculate whats going on [when we are not there], Han said. EVGA has decided not to carry the next-gen. EVGA is continuing the current product line. We will continue the current gen [until we run out].
According to Gamer Nexus, EVGA informed Nvidia's upper management in April 2022 that it would terminate its partnership. The reasons for the change are believed to be centered on respect, or lack thereof, as shown to EVGA by Nvidia.
EVGA told Gamers Nexus that it was routinely not informed of the product or the cost of the product it would be producing until Nvidia publicly announced the details. EVGA also appears to be against Nvidia's lower pricing of its Founder Edition cards, which EVGA felt were undercutting it in the market.
After several attempts to restart its relationship with Nvidia, EVGA decided to make this move. EVGA executives also stated that it will not be laying offs.
