BFG calls it quits in graphics

Well, this came as a shock to us. BFG Tech has decided to ditch its graphics card operations. The company currently has a top to bottom lineup of graphics solutions based on NVIDIA GeForce architecture.

Although the company is leaving graphics behind, it says that it will still continue with its power supplies, notebooks, and desktop systems.

Here's the press release in full:

BFG Technologies today announced their exit from the graphics card category. The company will continue to sell their line of BFG Tech power supplies as well as their Deimos gaming notebooks and Phobos gaming systems.

"After eight years of providing innovative, high-quality graphics cards to the market, we regret to say that this category is no longer profitable for us, although we will continue to evaluate it going forward", said John Slevin, chairman of BFG Technologies. "We will continue to provide our award-winning power supplies and gaming systems, and are working on a few new products as well. I’d like to stress that we will continue to provide RMA support for our current graphics card warranty holders, as well as for all of our other products such as power supplies, PCs and notebooks."

BFG will continue to offer RMA, telephone and email support for qualified BFG Tech graphics card warranty holders, but will no longer be bringing new graphics card products to market.

dead exclusive

They were exclusive to nvidia, which long term killed it off. Great when nvida had high card sales, in low market times they needed to have ati as well to maintain profits.

ASUS for example makes both ATI & Nvidia so they can post thier postions according to current market conditions.

Not about which brand is better, for those types of companies its about which brand they can make the most sales / profits from. Currently ATI leads in sales for this ever changing market, nvidia lead 2 years ago. So BFG and onther exclusive card makers are hitting rock bottom lately, as sales numbers tell the truth.
