An NVIDIA spokesperson confirmed the news to PCMag, but they didn't have any reasoning behind it. It's more of a "yeah, we're not selling our gear to them anymore" kind of thing. I'm not going to get into the politics of it all, as that's not our place to report on these things at TweakTown, but NVIDIA is a big deal -- so too is AMD and Intel -- and now, no more GeForce GPUs for Russian gamers.

The NVIDIA spokesperson said: "We are not selling into Russia".

From here, it's going to be nigh-impossible for PC builders and retailers to secure PC hardware... AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, and others are now halting sales into Russia. This means gamers and PC enthusiasts in Russia are going to have to stick with what they've got for now, and with the way, it's going for a while, possibly forever.
