    incorrect, ASUS has several tiers of cards:

    the 'Dual mini' series is their cheapest brand

    'Dual OC' is next step up

    TUF gaming is their 'mid range' brand

    ROG Strix is their 'high end' brand

    they stopped segregating the 'ROG' brand and 'Strix' brand in the GPU space a few generations ago and now it's just one brand for their highest tier cards type.

    for the 30 series exclusively they partnered up with Noctua to make a custom air cooled 3080 which is unique to ASUS and the 30 series from Nvidia.

    i don't know how old you are but i have had dealings with gigabyte since the 90's, and every interaction has been a bad one, my first 'gaming pc' that i built for myself has a gigabyte motherboard which constantly had issues despite being sent for repair multiple times before i got rid of that system and built a new one from scratch, i have had gigabyte GPUs in the past that have also had issues, and as a company they have been consistently bad with both their product quality as well as their customer service, with thousands of well documented and well highlighted incidents over the decades now, the last of which was the known faulty power supplies that exploded upon tripping OCP, see the GN videos on the topic for full information, not just that but at the launch of the 30 series they had major problems with their Aorus branded cards and many instances of failed or misplaced RMA's, so no, it's not a hobby, it's based on historical and not so historical evidence, if that's unclear to you then that's a 'you issue' and nothing i can help you with.

    its explained in a few videos that while video cards are a lot of total revenue, its barely any profit. so while revenue could go from 100m to 40m, profit might only go from 10m to 9m.

    mostly it will impact jobs. the company bottom line will take a hit, but from everything ive read, it wont be massive at all.

    Also 80% of EVGA's business is selling video cards, some say this will be the end of EVGA. It is a very sad day for gamers.

    I have bought EVGA products for almost 20 years, never had a issue except with the 3090, which they replaced for free. Free shipping, completely free swap for a new model and have had no issues with that. Customer service they had was 2nd to NONE.

    Sad day
    se above, it will likely barely impact the companies profitability

    As I said, noone makes cards that have no issues. Those issues also depend on a specific model and can vary heavily inside single generation lineups of the same vendor.
    My first Windows PC was an HP with a ATI RADEON 9800. The card overheated and died. I sent it back to HP, still under warranty. They sent me a new one. It eventually burned too. After that, I said eff ATI cards. I never had any EVGA NVIDIA card die. Ever.

    FYI: ATI was purchased by AMD. I know AMD cards are a different beast, but fool me once. Shame on them. Fool me twice. Shame on me. lol

    No. They're just the largest AIB by market share in the US. EVGA was very poorly represented elsewhere outside of the US.

This was patched by limiting how much it can boost, but didn't exactly fix the design flaws of the cards.
    They fixed the issues that prevented them from making profit, not all issues. Subpar power circuitry, board warp issues, just mediocre board design in general (to the point that reference boards are better) is just sad.

    No dude, Gigabyte have been making trash GPUs for the past 3 generations. It's only fair to bash them.

    Eh, I had Radeon 9250, then Radeon 9600, and then Radeon HD 2600 - worked fine. Linux support was poop compared to nVidia, that's about it.

    I have had computers since the early 90's and i have only ever had problems with Gigabyte one time and that was with the gigabyte z270x gaming 7, wich just died on me. I have had plenty of Gigabyte GPUs and non of them have been bad or died on me.

    The brands i have had most problems with is Asus and MSI. 2 motherboards and 2 GPUs from Asus has been bad for me. One GPU was DOA. I have had 2 MSI Lighting cards die on me.

    Yes they had the BIG PSU problem with exploding PSUs or what the problem was and they did NOT do a good job of fixing it and yes that of course leaves a bad marke on them. But their gpu's and Motherboards are still in the top. So the only problem i see with Gigabyte is that their custom service can be lagging, but if you can live with that, then you get just as good products as with the other brands.

    I myself have never had problems with thier custom servicce, but i have only used them one time and i got my money back for the Gaming 7 board, because they din't make it any more. When i Googled them i can see just as many people having good experiences with them as bad.

    My old Gigabyte 2070 windforce is still running strong in my fathers machine and my bothers gigabyte rtx 2080 ti windforce is also still running strong.

    ALL the brands had problems with the 3000 series at the start. EVGAs 3090 cards that died on people when they played New World. Asus had 3090 cards send to customers with big scratches on them and the 3080 cards just black screening. MSI had boosting problems on some of their cards. So Again they ALL had problems at the start of the 3000 series

    So yes in my eyes bashing on Gigabyte has just become a hobby. You can bash their custom service all you want, but the product are just as good as the others and they still make some of the best motherboards

    Care to linke to all thoose bad GPUs?. I can't find any more then what all the other brands has.

    All the brands has low tier cards, wich is nothing to write home about and they all have top of the line products. They all have hit and misses and i can't find any more problems with Gigabyte GPUs then wit Asus, MSI and EVGA.

    Sure they may not like it, but it's not like Nvidia made sudden change in their business behavior. It was always like that, it was always like that for everyone.

    Calling that "disrespectful" is just dumb. EVGA made billions with Nvidia's products. They just want more of the pie after the few incredibly profitable crypto-growth years. It's another billionaire fight, and anyone siding for either of those big corporation crying for more money is just dumb.

    This is exactly what I think. They were raking in the cash, but they(EVGA) wanted better margins. Nvidia wouldn't give it to them.

    EVGA said they will break the partnership, Nvidia said 'go for it'.

    And yes, it is a business, that's why they decided to stop making GPUs, because it's not worth the massive fucking hassle it is for them
    Or that's what EVGA say...

    I am weirded out by this unconditional taking of EVGA's response on this as some sort of gospel truth.
    All my ignores are permanently filtered out and invisible to me. Responding to my posts with nonsense or insults is pointless, you're likely already invisible and if not - 3 clicks away. One ignore is much better than 3 pages of trolling.

    It wasnt unconditional, and they have confirmation that those are, in fact, nVidiac's policies and behaviours from literally every other AIB partner. Its not like GN doesn't talk to GB, ASUS, et al.

    Those things that nVidia does (not even telling their own AIB partners the price until just weeks before launch, which might literally mean that an AIB cant make money on a product because their cost for their card is higher than nVidia's pricing allows) are factual. Its not a rumor.

    So you do all the legwork (advertising, getting into consumer channels, PR, etc) that all adds cost, have to wonder if your products can even be sold for a profit, have to deal with all the actual manufacturing problems (sourcing components, PCB design if not reference, etc) ...

    to MAYBE make a 5% profit.

    EVGA just decided it wasn't fucking worth it. While GPUs were 80% of their revenue, they werent even half of their profit. Let that sink in.

    The sources GN has in other AIB partners says the same thing though.

    I've owned and purchased a lot of EVGA stuff over the years and honestly this news caught me off guard, but the same time, perhaps karma is catching up to them, despite what people claim on the internet about their support, in the many times i have had to deal with a broken EVGA product, i have never received any of the legendary customer service they are known for.

    and about that legendary customer service, it was all built on a lie. their rep for amazing customer service came from them honoring warranty claims on gpus people had waterblocked but could return to stock. the reality is they were just following US consumer protection laws which prohibit manufacturers from voiding warranties due to aftermarket modification, they were never doing us a favor.

    it'll be interesting to see where they go as a company.

    No, that's a you issue. You had a bad motherboard. You had a bad GPU. You. Not everyone. You.

    I had a Gigabyte motherboard for years that was fine. I don't remember if I've had any of their GPUs, but that doesn't mean they're bad. I've had so many computers since the 90's I can't remember every part. So that's two experiences about their products. One good, one bad.

    I must have been only person to not have an issue with the launch 3080's, and still haven't. Even when people had issues with them not going over 2000mhz core without crashing, I had no such issues.

    In this video, you can clearly see my MSI gaming Trio X over 2000mhz, not a crash at all. And it was ment to be one of the ones with problems...

    thank you for missing the galaxy sized point i was making because you failed to grasp the concept.

    i clearly stated what issues i had, had with the company as a way to provide my own personal anecdotal evidence, what i also said was that the company as a whole is well known for bad quality products with thousands of examples all well documented over the decades now of both poor quality, and very poor customer service to remedy problems with said products as those issues arose, not just that but the absolutely horrific way gigabyte responds and communicates with their customer base as seen most recently with the shambolic press release provided in response to the shoddy and life threatening power supplies they sold, instead of owning the mistake and apologising, they instead decided to try and blame anybody else for the issue and despite offering replacements (which all but acknowledged they were wrong), they still kept to the company line of 'not us, you!', and that's exactly how i have felt whenever i have dealt with them over the years, to the point where i will actively avoid anything made by them because of my past bad experiences personally, and the well documented large scale issues they have had over the decades, how is this hard for you to understand?

    as a final point, the products i mentioned i had issues with, they were well known for being problematic at the time they were current tech, that's what makes them perfect examples of why this company is very low on the quality scale for me and millions of other people like me.

    My first ever custom build ran a Gigabyte board and GPU and that thing was great. I think it was one of those high core count AMD CPU's that they made about 10 years ago and a Radeon 6770. I've never had an issue with Gigabyte products that I've used over the years.
