Third-party GPU manufacturers have removed the 'gaming' brand label from their AMD graphics cards

DSOGaming writes: "Earlier this month, HardOCP published a really interesting story about NVIDIA’s GPP program. According to HardOCP’s sources, this program prohibited – among other things – third-party GPU manufacturers to use their gaming brand label on both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs. And even though some claimed that this was merely a rumour, today we’ve discovered some third-party manufacturers – that create GPUs for both companies – who have already removed their gaming brand label from their AMD graphics cards."

Why is nvidia even doing this?( its a rhetorical question) Cryptocurrency has all the cards sold out or sold at insane prices. Something needs to be done about retail prices or us mid range pc users will be buying prebuilt systems or go console only SMH.

Yea even my hardcore pc friends who usually shun pre built have gone that route and they basically bought pre built to pull the gpu and sell the rest just so they can get the gpu in the at a somewhat normal retail price kinda crazy.

Ebay recently had a 20% off coupon and I still paid $270 for an rx 580 8gb

It will keep gpu prices high from lack of competition and that will get some peope to buy consoles.

Razzer303d ago (Edited 303d ago )

This is not removing competition. This is all about branding. I don't see this having any effect on consoles.

Consumer looks for "gaming" PC.

Only finds inflated Nvidia options.

Thinks "fuck this. I'm not spending 2,500 for a top gaming machine or 1,000 for a mid gaming machine. I'll get a Pro or X for third of the price".

AMD comes out a winner due to their console hardware contributions.

Nasty business and borderline illegal! The fact that a lot of companies and reviewers are staying quiet about this is really annoying too and adds a whole lot more to how shady this is.

It's why I stick to the likes of Linus and Adoredtv on YouTube they tell it like it is and this bs where most other sites will simply brush this under the rug so Nvidia keep sending them cards.
