Bit Tech received a response from EVGA regarding the rumour from last week that AMD turned down EVGA. They heard from EVGA Co-Founder and Managing Director Hans-Wolfram Tismer that they have absolutely no plans at this time to make ATI products and that EVGA has a strong link to NVIDIA.
Mr. Tismer stated AMD was merely making a political statement given its more competitive market position, and that turning down EVGA, which owns a claimed 60 percent of the US retail market, was ludicrous.
Reaffirming a question bit-tech put to AMD last Friday evening - he claimed it would be AMD's biggest ever PR coup to secure such a pro-Nvidia partner. AMD's previous response to bit-tech on this question was that it had turned down EVGA because it considered eight partners enough and didn't want to upset the relationship between itself and them.
This is certainly plausible given the fact EVGA's 10 year/lifetime warranty and highly regarded support would have eclipsed that of any AMD partner - something our own community has voiced quite substantially.
