HardOCP heard a couple of rumors about video card makers at CES 2010. First up is a rumor that XFX' European operations will cease to be an NVIDIA Approved Partner, this means the company will lose support on GPU allocation and new product launches. Another rumor is that Visiontek will be kicked out of a major USA e-tailer, and the site also claims two to three major brands will likely fall by the wayside when it comes to NVIDIA and AMD GPUs.
This means that XFX will lose all underlying NVIDIA support on GPU allocation and new product launches...including Fermi. It also looks as if Visiontek will be kicked out of a MAJOR USA e-tailer, which will probably decimate Visiontek's business. We will be seeing other major changes in video card sales this year here in the USA as well. The video card manufacturer landscape will be very different in the USA this year.
