NVIDIA's cut partners can still get chips on grey market

Posted on Wednesday, October 08 2008 @ 02:31:18 CEST by

Yesterday FUD Zilla wrote Albatron, Biostar, Club3D, ECS and Foxconn will no longer receive GPUs from NVIDIA but today the site claims these graphics card makers can still get chips on the grey market if they want to continue their business:
Nvidia EMEA has decided to cut five of its partners and we heard from industry sources that buying chip from gray market actually can be a better business than working directly with Nvidia.

The gray market is something that chip companies are trying to fight since the existence of this industry. Let’s hypothesize, let’s say a big OEM manufacturer buys twenty thousand extra chips and simply flog it to an unknown buyer. The XY company gets the chips for its cards and the OEM makes some money of that deal.
