XFX Officially an AMD Partner

Michael Chiu, Chairman and CEO, Pine Technologies Holdings, makers of XFX graphics cards praised AMD for redefining the graphics market with the HD 4000 series. He also added that AMD gaming performance alone wasn't what caught XFX's attention, but rather a multitude of multimedia technologies used in AMD graphics cards, including video transcoding, HD playback and audio capabilities.

 

This leaves EVGA as the only strong Nvidia only as BFG has lost its mojo quite some time ago. EVGA will definitely get some preferencial treatment as it is Nvidia's number one partner in the USA and Nvidia really feels betrayed as XFX is the creative it created and then got betrayed.
