EVGA, one of the largest manufacturers of graphics card add-in boards, announced late Friday that it is quitting the board business due to the bleak financial outlook in the sector post-Ethereum Merge and "mistreatment" from its partner Nvidia.
EVGA CEO Andrew Han apparently said the software maker stopped giving it information about new product announcements and suggested retail pricing and availability before being publicly revealed, making planning a challenge. Nvidia also reportedly undercut the prices of partners like EVGA with its own Founders Edition cards, which pushed EVGA to sell at a loss to remain competitive.
