EVGA formally announced via their forum site that they will not be releasing new GPUs. The post was published by product director Jacob Freeman and is as short and concise as possible:
- EVGA will not carry the next generation graphics cards.
- EVGA will continue to support the existing current generation products.
- EVGA will continue to provide the current generation products.
EVGA is committed to our customers and will continue to offer sales and support on the current lineup. Also, EVGA would like to say thank you to our great community for the many years of support and enthusiasm for EVGA graphics cards.
EVGA CEO Andrew Han also held a private press conference with select media channels to share further details where it was stated that circumstances related to dealing with NVIDIA put a large strain on the company and its employees which ultimately led to this decision. EVGA’s primary revenue comes mainly from graphics cards where it comprises 80% of what the company makes. According to his comments, EVGA doesn’t plan on shifting to becoming an AMD or Intel partner as well.
What Will Happen to EVGA?
EVGA will continue to operate as a company, and promises to keep up operations. Speculations suggest EVGA could continue as a motherboard and PSU company. EVGA has had a favorable history in these markets as well and have tried to dip their feet in others but for now, the most immediate businesses they can resort to are the ones they already have and MB and PSUs are the most obvious.
What Happens to EVGA Graphics Cards?
EVGA will continue to provide support and warranty for existing products. If you buy an EVGA graphics card right now, EVGA will honor your warranty. This applies to all graphics cards from RTX 30-series cards and earlier.
What is NVIDIA’s Reaction?
Nothing official yet but Twitter use Tae Kim shared the following comment from NVIDIA:
“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.”
