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.

I know the Head of BFG support and marketing, We use to talk alot, He once let it slip that He had suggested that BFG also put out a line of ATI based products, Higher ups refused this suggestion to keep their exclusive nvidia deal.

This is what caused them to "fail it" nVidia is forcing anybody who wants a gtx400 card to also buy gt210/220/240 cards, not just a couple but they have to buy a large number of crap cards nobody is buying for EACH FERMI THEY WANT, this is why XFX told nVidia to stuff it and didnt put any fermi's out, and i agree with them..

Maby if they get rid of the nvidiot from their management they could get somebody that would support them making/selling some ATI based products, That I THINK would sell very well, I know I would buy BFG again if they had 5k cards, but nvidia had nothing that was of any value to me when i got my 5770, honestly they had the gtx260 in same price range, the 275/285 where massivly over priced, fermi was out 6 months late and is a PIG of a card.....

chalk one up to stupidity in management......

Hope Jeff keeps his job or finds another one, he is a great guy, maby XFX could hire him :P
