Woah, that's a shock. I've still got one of their 6600 GTOC's in my old Athlon PC.
Seems like PC game piracy, and as result the lack of new innovated PC games, is finally hitting the hardware market...
Seems like Nvidia's Fermi disaster is hitting resellers more like!
Good. The motherboard and add-in card markets are in need of some serious seller and product rationalisation, as far as I'm concerned. I'm not at all surprised that the market's not profitable for resellers atm.
I think the "focusing on power supply and gaming system divisions" really means theres no cash coming out of graphics for us any more... "we give in.. we'll make more else where"!
That is a surprise, they always had good cards and one of the best warranty policy's.
My favourite reseller back in the day... before I switched to ATI, that is.
A loss to the industry. Fantastic RMA, great cards.
That's how it goes when you're "premium partner" for a certain company, and said company cannot deliver the goods (for quite a while now). Probably won't be the last "partner" to bite the dust, either. It's a shame though...
It's no surprise. Graphics card manufacturers come and go and it's very had to differentiate your graphics card from someone else's these days.
it's the economy
"Seems like PC game piracy, and as result the lack of new innovated PC games, is finally hitting the hardware market..."
Huh? Pirates don't need video cards?
I'd say that the economy, Fermi or the lack of any significant progress in graphics over the last few years would be more likely reasons.
I am surprised though. They always struck me as one of the better Nvidia card providers.
Pirating -> less profit on PC -> Less development for PC -> Fewer decent games on pc -> fewer pc gamers
That said, I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with why BFG is getting out of the graphics card business.
this stinks.. I really like my BFG 8800 GT :-/ ... first ABit ..and now them.. *le sigh*
That is such a shame, I'm a huge fan of BFG Tech GPU's, so it comes as a huge surprise, but i do wonder if it's because of the limited amount of popularity that Fermi has generated.
Still, i wonder what happens to BFG's Warranty on existing cards?
I have 4 computers and 5 video cards all of them are BFG, I have enjoyed there quality and I was hoping to buy more cards from then in the future.
