    EVGA has terminated its relationship with NVIDIA. EVGA will no longer be manufacturing video cards of any type, citing a souring relationship with NVIDIA as the cause (among other reasons that were minimized). EVGA will not be exploring relationships with AMD or Intel at this time, and the company will be downsizing imminently as it exits the video card market. Customers will still be covered by EVGA policies, but EVGA will no longer make RTX or other video cards. The company already made ~20 EVT samples of EVGA RTX 4090 FTW3 cards, but will not be moving to production and has killed all active projects pertaining to cards -- including KINGPIN cards.

    Just saw it.
    Wow !

    Why do I have a feeling RTX 4000 series will be a huge massive failure ?

    Nvidia does not bow down to anyone.All hail NVIDIA KING. Also nvidia will sell the rtx 4xxx lineup without problems with high margins.

    Well what other nvidia partners will be leaving the GPU space.Not many have done so in the past but margins are slim and makes no sense to try and run a good chunk of a business if it loses money.

    EDIT:AM I crazy the gamers nexus video is stunning picture quality on 4K OLED.Since when has gamers nexus picked up there video game quality.

    Clearly the margins simply aren't there to sustain their GPU business and the second mining downturn hit them hard. EVGA has always been a popular brand due to their good reputation and quality products, but they haven't been a major AIB for a while now - or at least it seemed that way to me.

    This will have no bearing on RTX 4000. As Steve rightfully pointed out, other AIBs will (well, likely already have) happily pick up the slack.

    Nvidia throwing everyone under the bus with them trying to profit on miners, and then letting partners take the hit for the huge amount of gpus that cant be sold now.

    Nah, 4000 series will be a success - it's the massive amount of 3000 series cards that nvidia expected to sell to miners, which cant be sold now, that is the problem.

    Don't forget these partners, including EVGA, sold us graphics cards for 2x the price and forced bundles with crappy motherboards and PSUs not 12 months ago. I have 0 pity for any company involved in this GPU market fiasco last 2 years.

    You joke, but I think there's more to this story than a simple Nvidia=bad excuse. More truth and facts will come out in weeks and months. EVGA CEO basically destroyed his company (GPUs were 80% of entire EVGA revenue, it's crazy). Something else is going on.

    I wonder if Nvidia is really going to push their own reference boards more. Seeing as EVGA revenue is about 80% made up of Nvidia products, this cannot have been an easy decision.

    Na sold out for a month max. This ain't crypto world mate, crypto is dead (for now). Then after 2 months, we will start to see over stock of GPUs.

    The world is in a recession and getting worse.

    EVGA seem like a good company and hopefully they can be successful with ohter and new products. I don't think the board of EVGA would make the move without having a rough plan about where to invest next.

    Or maybe they are about to go bankrupt! I hope not but a lot of employees must be pretty scared right now.
