I mean, the word Graphics was in their name!
Sometimes it feels like there’s more to a story than what we are all being told. This whole split between EVGA and NVIDIA seems like one of those. Or, maybe it isn’t. Maybe we’ve been told exactly what’s going on and maybe this is how other companies feel about it as well, but EVGA is the only one taking action on it.
I don’t know. No one BUT those two companies have said anything about this whole situation. But the complaints EVGA has would be the same exact complaints from any of the other NVIDIA partners. So why say something now? And why EVGA? And only EVGA at that. I think MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte, Zotac, and others all have the same agreements with NVIDIA.
The other thing that stands out here is what EVGA has to fall back on. Other companies I’ve mentioned before all have other products but most of them, like EVGA, rely heavily on the sales of their graphics cards for PCs. However, I doubt it’s 80% of their revenue like it is with EVGA.
And that’s the weird thing about it all. I’m guessing they did number crunching and were…losing money? I mean, the logical part of me, the calculated part, the paranoid and planning part tells me they did the math and figured they’d be good to make this split, but I don’t see how they fill that massive revenue hole.
Should have seen this coming though. I always get something new only to have it become obsolete or die off shortly after. Happens with TV shows too but mostly with electronics. I won’t go over the list (it’s a long one), but yeah, I just put my first EVGA card in my PC back in April of this year.
And, apparently, my last EVGA card.
Meanwhile…Ubisoft, it has been 3,308 days since the last Splinter Cell game (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise, remake, or VR exclusive).
