According to our sources, EVGA could commercialize some graphic card equipped with AMD Vega GPUs (This is a old rumor, I know, but now it's more realistic).
Like enthusiast users recall, XFX abandoned NVIDIA in 2010 not because AMD had better solutions, but because NVIDIA treated XFX like a 2nd tier company, despite during these days XFX used to produce some of the best NVIDIA cards.
If you look carefully, today EVGA situation is similar to XFX one:
- low amount of GTX 1070/1080 available by EVGA;
- EVGA custom GTX1070/1080s came after rival custom cards;
- not the best Pascal cards in the market (Is EVGA pissed off?);
- NVIDIA sells the - high profitable - Titan cards independently.
This NVIDIA strategy is hurting the partnership with EVGA (The best NVIDIA partner according to the customers ... at least before GTX1070/1080 cards).
On the other hand, a lot of people will buy an EVGA "Vega" card for sure, even at a premium price: AMD users are still dreaming an EVGA-AMD high-end card. Last, but not the least, Vega seems to be a great GPU.
So, will we see EVGA on AMD side?
UPDATE: EVGA - via Twitter - has officially denied this rumor.
Out of curiosity: VEGA is the anagram of EVGA.
