Despite what NVIDIA says, Sapphire is still an ATI-only manufacturer

Contrary to what was published by NVIDIA public relations earlier this morning, Sapphire will not be manufacturing GeForce 7900GS and 7950GT-based graphic cards that were announced earlier today. 

NVIDIA's press release for the new cards reads:
Some of the world's leading add-in card partners are offering graphics cards based on the new NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS and GeForce 7950 GT GPUs, including Albatron, AOpen Inc., ASUSTek Computer Inc., BFG Technologies Inc., Biostar, Chaintech Computer Co. Ltd., Cheer Ascent, City Gate / Triple-D, Club3D, ELSA, Epsco, EVGA Corporation, Foxconn, Gainward Co. Ltd., Galaxy, Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., Innovision, Jaton, Jetway, Leadtek Research Inc., MSI Computer Corporation, Palit Microsystems, Inc., Prolink, PNY Technology, Point of View, Sapphire Technology, Sigmacom, SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd., and XFX.
Although Sapphire's CEO has openly admitted it is intereted in a partnership with NVIDIA, no such deal is in place and as of now the company still only manufactures ATI-based products.  Sapphire representatives confirmed to DailyTech that the reference was just a typo, and customers should not read too deep into it.
