So, it’s been a few weeks since Nvidia announced that it will pay special attention to gamers and want the sellers to prioritize gamers over miners. Soon, it made the GPP which is the Geforce Partner Program which looked awesome for the gamers and PC builders as it has many good things that look good on the paper like, “The GeForce Partner Program is designed to ensure that gamers have full transparency into the GPU platform and software they’re being sold, and can confidently select products that carry the NVIDIA GeForce promise.”
And “The GPU and software of a gaming PC make all the difference in a gamer’s experience. And together with our add-in card and system partners, we’re dedicated to building the best PC gaming platform bar-none — this is the GeForce promise.”
But behind the door, they have different intentions and Kyle Bennet from HardOCP revealed some of them by digging deeper into what Nvidia wants to achieve with this GPP. It’s very difficult to get information from every OEM or manufacturer over things which are just teased but there are some good techs who find their way in getting the reality.
“Want a Good GPU? Here are the best graphics cards for cheap prices”
Bennet said that he has been talking to different vendors for past few weeks about the GPP and talked to almost 7 of them regarding this program and reported that none of them was ready to talk about the program but some of them did while wanted to be anonymous in fear of losing their jobs. Long story short, Nvidia wants their partners who want to participate in the GPP program to only work with them. That’s it!
If a particular vendor who is the manufacturer of the graphics card participates in this program, he cannot make graphics cards of different company namely AMD which is the only tough competitor of Nvidia and Bennet says that it will hurt the consumer choices more. Some of them who talked about this matter said that “It’s likely illegal” what Nvidia wants to do.
