    Nvidia was hoping to keep the terms a secret. If it wasn't for AMD and Kyle then we would have been unaware of it, and would have seen the inevitable rebrands as a decision by the AIBs. Essentially, AMD spoiled their plans and caused the GPP to die.

    Also, from what I'm reading, the decision to kill the GPP probably wasn't done solely from bad PR. There was talk about how they might get in trouble with the FTC and the EU, and how companies like Dell and HP were refusing to join. They probably thought it would be better to kill it off now before things got too hairy.

    "GPP had a simple goal – ensuring that gamers know what they are buying and can make a clear choice." and "With GPP, we asked our partners to brand their products in a way that would be crystal clear. The choice of GPU greatly defines a gaming platform. So, the GPU brand should be clearly transparent – no substitute GPUs hidden behind a pile of techno-jargon."

    What a load of bull. Anyone who builds their own PCs knows what we are buying

    Wow, just wow.
    The way they worded it makes it all seem as if they are the victims here......

    I guess there were some legal ramifications looming on the horizon, so they pulled the plug before it could get any worse.

    Great! Now, can they focus on important stuff like maybe...updating the Controlpanel? It's 2018 for Christ's sake.
    I like nVidia, they make the fastest cards but this GPP was utter crap.

    Yeah, I'd been a faithful ROG man for years, four mobos and a couple of their cards....but should I get a new GPU and Mobo, you can be sure that they won't be Asus. Hell, any brand other than Asus will be getting my money.

    @Romulusut33e
    Rally? In what way better? Did prices drop?
    Lol

    @Everyone else whining about it
    The ppl that know what brand/naming etc is a nv and which one is amd, dont need gpp (akq ppl in this forum), and everyone else would have gained information without needing "our" background or having to do research.
    And lol at ppl now saying they wont buy certain brands.
    So lets assume something goes wrong (lets disregard how/why/wherefor a sec) and the only brand that would sell the chip/product "you need" to play certain games would only come from company X (you wont buy from), you would rather get nothing?!
    How many of you have an intel cpu coming from a company that has been fined multiple times for doing worse things than this?
    Rofl.

    GPP had a simple goal – All your brand names are belong to us.

    Lol What? "Not talking..." Then don't, because you know very little on how those came to be.

    And there is huge difference between exclusivity and this poop throwing program which takes gaming out of gaming for sake of branding and bragging. And for that reason EVGA is just fine, they can make nVidia GPUs only and I still like them.

    This pretty much means nothing. Any company/vender that could not think for themselves were doomed to start with.

    what? 1030 gaming, 1050 gaming are a gaming cards? some radeon 460 gaming is a gaming card? Please...AIB's took gaming out of the gaming all by themselves a long time ago. AIBs are the scum. Not nV and AMD (as much). To be clear, I don't care for any brand in particular. They are all in it for the money. They (all of the brands, AMD included) just want more money.
    The rest is PR b$.
