Never understood why companies would subject themselves to a single company in a market that is held by 2 competitors. If the one you work for fails then so does your company. You should always maximize your amount of incomes and relying on AMD who has never been ahead in market share(at least in last decade) is just silly.

I’ve had the exact same thoughts.

Because the alternative implication would be having to work with Nvidia.. lol
I'm sure they have considered it, making aftermarket GPUs would be fairly standardised.

I imagine working Nvidia requires coming to an agreement, which in Powercolor's situation, would probably require getting rid of supplying AMD, and being low on the GPU allocation priority. ie not worth the effort.

It probably is some Nvidia Limitation or intense requirement, I always wondered that given that last few years see very little to show for AMD on the GPU side, yet we have Powercolour, ASrock, Sapphire, HIS, Club 3D and XFX as Radeon only models

I guess it may come down to the amount of units they could promise to move.
