News broken by GN. Even though there is no press release I can see right now, this is not a rumor. Info comes directly from EVGA CEO, citing difficulty working with Nvidia.
Well, tell me what Intel's Limited Edition cards are?They either got RDNA's being made up, or Intel has partnered with them as intel has no clue on how to make a GPU outside the die only packages. Hell maybe Intel Bought them, or bought the entire GPU division, as Intel really has no clue on how to design a proper GPU layout and board.
If Biostar has been able still be in business after all of these years selling
craptacularcheap but usually stable and functional motherboards, EVGA can make it (at least in the U.S. / Europe markets).
I have a strong inkling that if EVGA does decide to expand their motherboard lineup, it won't be a nForce model.
There's a lot of money to be made on motherboards nowadays. Slap some RGB on it, a few colorful pieces of plastic on it with spiffy scribblings on it, and a debug LED, and charge $600 - $800 for it.......Kidding not kidding.

I have often wondered how the whole AIB business model works. Nvidia sells their own cards, so they are competing with all the AIB vendors. It feels like there are way too many companies in that space now, including many no-name Chinese vendors.
Haven't kept up with things, but I remember Biostar being in a lot of cheap pre-builts.Fixed.
Biostar may not be the best quality (lol) however I've used a whole bunch of their low-end Intel-chipset motherboards over the last 25+ years (like 100's) and literally never had a serious problem that couldn't be fixed with a BIOS update.
The only advantage they have over Superflower (the OEM who makes their PSU's) is better communication with tech-support.
FYI EVGA stopped using SuperFlower's Leadex platform with the G2 and P2 series (and possibly T2 series). The newer stuff comes from other OEMs.
So far it appears that all of them are limited edition! 😂😂😂Well, tell me what Intel's Limited Edition cards are?

Competition is a good thing, the more the merrier. Why are smartphone prices so inexpensive, comparatively speaking? Because there's loads of vendors and loads of choice and loads of SoC /chipset producers.
Samsung, Apple, RockChip, MediaTek, Qualcomm, Allwinner, and others make SoCs for smartphones, and many of these companies are moving up (MediaTek's Dimensity 1050 chip is actually pretty impresive and I think Motorola's using it in one of their higher-end mid-range phones).
Look at the state of the GPU market... we have two major producers and one also-ran who's first showing is pretty God-awful. Turn the clock back to the late 1990s / early 2000s and it was a GPU bonanza. Half a dozen or more different GPU chipsets and probably close to two dozen AIBs. You wanted a PowerVR chip from STB? No problem. You want a Rendition chip from Matrox? Done.
Loads of choice. Loads of competition. Loads of great pricing.
It was a great time.

If they have left the GPU market then I wouldn't trust them to not leave the MB market as well. Hence I am much less likely to buy a board of them now. I mean how does a company like that survive when it kills most of it's revenue with no replacement in sight? It certainly doesn't give you any faith in the management.I'm guessing they're going to make a big push into motherboards, since they already have a foot in that particular door and it's the video card staff should have good skills overlap.

We don't have enough competition, period. That's the problem.

Now that nvidia has given its rtx4000 series presentation, I think we know now why EVGA pulled out of making GPUs for this next generation.
I agree. Think they were sick of getting pushed around. I remember a bunch of AIBs complaining about the 30 series rollout and how they felt they were given everything at the last minute possible.They bailed out (Told NVidia back in April) long before they would have known anything about pricing or current market conditions (mining crash).
They were just sick of NVidia's treatment.
