Increasing Sales Of Nvidia Graphics Cards To Affect Profitability Of Other Suppliers

Long story short, graphics card companies are getting heat from Nvidia’s controversial Founders Edition, which is reportedly being pushed aggressively. It remains to be seen just how much of an effect these cards will have on the financials of Asus, Gigabyte, and other popular manufacturers, but what seems to be certain is that Nvidia sees no issue in competing with their own clients. Of course, this is not the first time Nvidia has attempted to look past its partners. Thanks to cageymaru for the link.

Efforts by Nvidia to push sales of its own-brand Founders Edition graphics cards are likely to affect the profitability of graphics card suppliers in Taiwan and China in 2017 and beyond, according to industry sources. While supplying GPUs to graphics card makers, including Taiwan-based Asustek Computer, Gigabyte Technology, Micro-Star International (MSI), Palit Microsystems, Hong Kong-based Zotac and China-based Colorful, Nvidia is also competing with these clients in the PC-use graphics card market, noted the sources.
