EVGA Will No Longer Make GPUs for Nvidia
Popular graphics card maker EVGA has terminated its relationship with Nvidia and will therefore no longer be creating GPUs going forward.
As reported by YouTube channel Gamers Nexus, EVGA has ceased all future graphics card operations but will continue to sell the remaining stock of its current products and support customers who've purchased them already.
EVGA cited 'disrespectful treatment' as the reason for terminating the relationship, saying that it grew frustrated as Nvidia would allegedly reveal important information to the public at the same time as it would EVGA.
EVGA terminates relationship with NVIDIA, ceases all video card manufacturing on grounds of disrespectful treatment, among other things. Employees told they will be 'taken care of,' but we don't see how all those jobs will persist ad infinitum: https://t.co/ZvgDYhcGXf

The company also reportedly felt that Nvidia was undercutting it by offering its own Founders Edition graphics cards at a lower price than EVGA products.
It expects to run out of the RTX 30-series graphics cards by the end of 2022 but is withholding some stock to fulfil the warranties of current customers if needed. EVGA will remain in business and continue selling its other products but will not expand into new areas or seek out a new graphics card partnerships with the likes of Intel or AMD.
"EVGA is committed to our customers and will continue to offer sales and support on the current line-up," it said in a statement. "EVGA would like to say thank you to our great community for the many years of support and enthusiasm for EVGA graphics cards."
Nvidia has not publicly acknowledged the complaints from EVGA but did provide a statement to IGN, saying: "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 [CEO Andrew Han] and our friends at EVGA all the best."
Despite terminating its graphics card division, EVGA has said that no employees will lose their jobs, claming that those working in GPUs will be relocated to other parts of the company.
