Default Nvidia and XFX to seperate?

http://www.maximumpc.com/article/new..._xfx_part_ways

hmm, seems like a rather silly thing to do considering XFX is a large dealer for Nvidia, but who knows, maybe the AMD XFX relationship rocked the boat too hard for Nvidias taste

huh. Guess that means Evga will monopolize? I only one of ten people I can think of immediately that purchases strictly Evga for Nvidia.

This really sucks because now there won't be any competition and card manufacturers can drive prices up through the roof. On the upside, this could create a niche in the graphics card line up that something better than XFX might be able to fill.

That doesn't make alot of sense to me, surely nvidia would want as many manufacturers to offer the chips as possible

Yes..but from what I have seen, XFX likes to be as non-mainstream as possible. I've already seen that with MSI. At least in their hardware layouts. Maybe Nvidia is trying to push XFX and it went a little too far??
