BFG Drops From Graphics Market

"Long time Nvidia graphics card manufacturer BFG has decided to focus on system building and power supplies."

With the release of Nvidia's first Fermi cards, you may have noticed one previously major player from the Nvidia camp conspicuously missing: BFG.  You may have also noticed that recently there have been very few listings for their cards on most of the popular component e-tailers.  Well there's a reason for this, and not a good one.

BFG Technologies have given word that they will be pulling out of the graphics card business.  Instead, they will be focusing on some of the other areas they have since expanded into, particularly their power supplies and pre-built high-end systems.

"After eight years of providing innovative, high-quality graphics cards to the market, we regret to say that this category is no longer profitable for us, although we will continue to evaluate it going forward. We will continue to provide our award-winning power supplies and gaming systems, and are working on a few new products as well," said John Slevin, chairman of BFG Technologies.

Seeing as they were known for providing top-quality overclocked components as well as some of the best support in the business, this could be seen as quite a blow to the Nvidia camp.  Speaking of tech support, BFG made sure to mention that they will continue to provide warranty services for cards already purchased.

"I'd like to stress that we will continue to provide RMA support for our current graphics card warranty holders, as well as for all of our other products such as power supplies, PCs and notebooks," concluded Mr. Slevin.

This departure certainly sheds some more light on Nvidia's position in the current graphics market.  The popularity of AMD's HD 5000 series is still on the rise and continued disappointments in regards to performance for the price (and heat/noise) mean profits are getting slim, making things look a bit grim for the green team.  One can only hope they are able to turn things around in the near future, and perhaps BFG will return to the field.

Sure, not sure if you can setup private games but that'd be ideal for the OC3D guys. Best bet is to organise a time in the coming week, post it here and people can have a chance to make themselves available and participate. The more the merrier!
