Abit to enter Nvidia graphics card market
Abit will join first-tier motherboard makers such as Elitegroup Computer System (ECS) and Foxconn (Hon Hai Precision Industry) in selling only Nvidia-based cards.
However, although Nvidia’s products are enjoying excellent demand and profitability in the market, first-tier graphics card makers including Evga, Zotac, XFX and Asustek Computer have already consumed most of the market meaning the late-comers, who do not have unique technologies with which to differentiate their products, will face difficulties in grabbing market share, noted sources at graphics card makers who make both AMD and Nvidia cards.
Most graphics card makers would like to sell both AMD and Nvidia-based cards, however, the need to reach a high economic scale is stopping this from happening, according to sources at makers who produce only Nvidia-based cards.
No word yet on when the first Nvidia-based board will roll out, though our eyes are peeled on Abit’s website for more info.
