BFG Tech Announces Exit From Graphics Card Category, Continues On With Power Supplies And Laptops/PCs. All Warranties to be Honoured.
BFG Technologies today announced their exit from the graphics card category. The company will continue to sell their line of BFG Tech power supplies as well as their Deimos gaming notebooks and Phobos gaming systems.
“After eight years of providing innovative, high-quality graphics cards to the market, we regret to say that this category is no longer profitable for us, although we will continue to evaluate it going forward”, said John Slevin, chairman of BFG Technologies. “We will continue to provide our award-winning power supplies and gaming systems, and are working on a few new products as well. I’d like to stress that we will continue to provide RMA support for our current graphics card warranty holders, as well as for all of our other products such as power supplies, PCs and notebooks.”
BFG will continue to offer RMA, telephone and email support for qualified BFG Tech graphics card warranty holders, but will no longer be bringing new graphics card products to market.
Editorial by SKYMTL: This is indeed a sad day for the GPU market as it has lost one of its major North American players and will surely be a blow to NVIDIA as well. Naturally, all of the signs pointed this way considering BFG had yet to release any GTX 480 or GTX 470 cards to retailers. According to our conversations with representatives at BFG, Canadian RMA service and support should not be affected in any way and all Lifetime Warranties will be honoured. We wish BFG all the best in the future and hope they can make another move into the GPU arena at a later date.
