EVGA Terminates NVIDIA Partnership
Nvidia is putting the final touches on a new generation of GeForce RTX 40 series based on the Ada Lovelace architecture, which should be the busiest time for Nvidia board partners. But at this moment, big news broke.
EVGA officially announces that it will not launch GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards, however, current-generation GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards will continue to ship until inventory is cleared, and the necessary support will be provided.
The main reason for EVGA’s decision was the deteriorating relationship with Nvidia, which some media reported was “a matter of respect” rather than financial reasons. EVGA CEO Andrew Han said that about 20 samples of the GeForce RTX 4090 FTW3 have been produced, but will not enter the production stage, and all activities related to graphics cards, including the KINGPIN series graphics cards, have been terminated.
Nvidia provided Tae Kim with a brief statement: “We’ve had a great partnership with EVGA over the years and will continue to support them on our current generation of products. We wish Andrew and our friends at EVGA all the best.”
