EVGA comments Nvidia retail push

Written by


Not very concerned apparently
Nvidia-exclusive partner EVGA doesn’t appear to be overly concerned by Nvidia’s entry into the retail market.

EVGA is one of the most popular Nvidia partners and it’s one of just a few Nvidia-exclusive partners in the game, meaning it can’t rely on Radeon sales when times are tough for Nvidia, and tough they are.

EVGA spokesman Joe Darwin said that Nvidia had talked about moving into the retail business for quite a while, so the announcement came as no surprise. Darwin pointed out that EVGA offers excellent in-house tech support and that its RMA service averages two days. “We haven’t seen anyone else that can compete on that level,” he said.

Darwin said that EVGA would continue to build Nvidia cards and offer the best service on the market. However, we must note that Nvidia has lost quite a few partners in recent years. Several former Nvidia-exclusive partners have embraced Radeons, while others, such as BFG, have simply gone under.

Clearly, it’s not a good time to be an Nvidia AIB.

WTF are you talking about? They said NO COMMENT. Then just yadda yadda yadda

Given the nature of their business relationship, we wouldn't expect any of Nvidia's partners to blast them on the record. "No comment," EVGA spokesman Joe Darwin told us when we asked how he felt about the news.

Actually it's a good time to be an NVIDIA partner. EVGA became number 1 in the USA through superior customer support and superior web forums. In addition EVGA also offers great promotions, prizes, and contests.

Whatsoever you may be smoking, I'd love a sample.

Obviously you know little or nothing about EVGA products or you'd know they have the best quality. You'll never get the level of service through companies such as ASUS, Zotac, and others than you get from EVGA

I've been using EVGA products for a couple of years. Customer support is like no other...excellent. Just ordered a GTX 470 from the egg and a backplate and High Flow Bracket from EVGA that are mods to help with cooling...free shipping. I never had a question posted in the forums that went unanswered.

Unfortunatly EVGA is at the mercy of Nvidia, and I think it would be wise for EVGA to expand into other products like monitors, handheld devices, notebooks, tablets, TV Tuners, all of which could make use of Nvidia products.

Come on use your logic EVGA is apparently concerned. Nvidia their "partners" want to compete with them (take a portion of their income). I don't know what you think but this is not a very nice move, to turn your back at your partners instead of supporting them.

There is not such great difference. Yes i agree EVGA has better customer support but neither ASUS nor Zotac are terrible. I always buy the cheapest card and I never had to rma it. The exception is an Nvidia laptop card (one of the faulty nvidia cards).

Generally speaking, EVGA does provide a better quality service than the competition. His comment about the community (TF2, BFBC2, etc as well as a well used forum) and contests holds true as well.

Community, customer service, and good quality (except for that one RMA...). What else could you ask for?

I have to chime in too. I have purchased EVGA cards for a while now and have had to use their RMA service (due to those pesky NVidia drivers that killed cards some time ago). I have nothing to complain about and everything to praise. It is a pretty cool company (for a change).

And even though I don't frequent the forums as much, they do seem to have a pretty lively community.

Actually they are doing that

EVGA has mobos, a recently announced one even has LIFETIME warranty , also they started to produce PSUs and USB 3.0 adapters...still Nvidia's move is treacherous

and yes EVGA is the best company if you wanna buy Nvidia based card! yeah I said it
