XFX is already slinging mud Nvidia's way over their launch on social media. I'm sure they don't mind waiting they only deal with AMD after the way Nvidia treated them.

Eh, I never liked XFX and thought they made crap from the start. Right around the time they decided to start selling AMD chips, XFX was getting hammered for making garbage cards. The quality control was very suspect and they were getting a lot of negative attention at that time.

I do agree that NV was in the wrong for cutting them off as a partner due to wanting to sell AMD/ATI GPUs, though. There's a reason NV doesn't do that to companies like ASUS or Gigabyte .. they're simply too big to **** with, and both ASUS and Gigabyte make fantastic custom PCBs ..

Theres a reason for that in that the big aib's treated amd like crap often using crappy or even the wrong coolers for the amd cards. One asus card had a nvidia cooler with the base plate offset of the gpu die leading to stupid overheating. Cutting them out for now might just be a wake up call if amd has a winner on its hands and sells out.

XFX had crappy cards but lately they are decent. I had the XFX HD 5870 that was garbage but the XFX GTR RX480 was one of the best of the bunch. Still have that one in fact as a back up.

asus or xfx it's hit or miss my xfx 5970 was great and all my asus AMD dc2's I have had were great also

but then my last AMD card was Fury x

but then Asus did let NV tell them to drop AMD from the ROG line for a bit and that was BS
