There’s been a lot of talk of Nvidia partner defections and reshuffles in recent months, following the low market performance of their graphics cards compared to a reinvigorated Radeon lineup. Earlier this year it was Gainward
, and now another Nvidia exclusive video card partner has announced it is joining the red camp to bring XFX branded ATI video cards to market.
According to reports
, XFX expects to offer ATI HD 4000 series products in early 2009. The company will nonetheless continue to sell its GeForce-based products, but obviously Nvidia won't be thrilled by the recent turn of events, which leaves EVGA as the only strong Nvidia exclusive add-in board partner.
