Rats Jumping Ship or Pushed Overboard?
According to a report by The Inquirer, based on information from industry sources, Nvidia is dumping another five partners, with Foxconn, ECS, BioStar, Albatron and Club3D facing the axe. If this proves to be true it will be the latest in a string of partners dissolving their relationship with Nvidia. Gainward and XFX are no longer partners, and EVGA have stated that they no longer wish to remain exclusive to Nvidia.
The reason given for this move is that Nvidia don't see having twenty four partners as economically viable, and they wish to cut costs. They are facing tough times at the moment, due to poor sales and other financial burdens. We will keep you updated on this story as it unfolds.
