EVGA and AMD

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Ever since EVGA released their Classified series I'd always wanted to see an AMD chipset EGVA board. You'd think with the Bulldozer coming out September 19th (I think?) and the fact that ASUS has produced an AM3+ Sabertooth board with the 990FX chipset (already on sale) EVGA might think that releasing an AM3+ board would be worth it.

AMD is gathering a lot of support recently with their fusion build, even with their rumored plans to abandon the Phenom x2s and x4s, and with ASUS jumping on the bandwagon and opening their Sabertooth line to the 990FX chipset, you'd think EVGA wouldn't have too much to lose with at least one AMD release.

What are your views? Even though EVGA have a contract with nVidia, an EVGA/AMD motherboard will always remain a fantasy of mine.

there's too much conflict of interest with nvidia and amd/ati.

unless some sort of business trust was voided, i dont see it happening any time soon. evga has done very well as a supplier for nvidia.

Well, it has me asking, why isn't there an AMD alternative to AMD? Nobody really seems to take an interest in AMD/ATi, and at the risk of starting a flamewar, I'd say some AMD/ATi systems I've seen far surpass any Intel/nVidia system I've ever used (in a sensible realm of comparison, of course, Duh, a 1090T would pound a Core2).

Hope not. If EVGA lines up with AMD it will face the same downfall that XFX had as soon as they started producing ATI video cards

To the contrary, XFX/ATi cards are some of the most powerful and reliable cards I've ever used. I only just switched to ASUS, I had upgraded from an XFX4850 to an XFXHD5770 then to an XFX6870 and I just recently ordered my ASUS EAH6950.

That was an example of a comparison OUTWITH a reasonable realm of comparison.

I was being sarcastic.

The cards might be good but if it ever fails a whole hell will break loose.. I had an XFX 8800GT back in the day and when It failed I had the best support ever. Now they must be doing something wrong that the only thing I hear from XFX is horror stories. And coincidentally it started happening right after switching to AMD

Don't get me wrong I am not a fanboy of any side whether it's AMD/Intel or Nvidia/ATI but I just can't seem to imagine an AMD board with the EVGA logo on it

Oh hell yeah, XFX's support has always been horrendous. I prefer to just ask for a replacement from the retailer.

Although eBuyer's usual timeframe for a product replacement was 3 months. And they actually send me back another broken one to begin with. I guess that's what you call bad word-of-mouth referral. Never buy from eBuyer.
