Graphics card manufacturer Asrock has only made AMD cards for a long time, but was early on with Intel's Arc cards and was, for example, the first to release a 16GB model of the A770. The fact that the company now makes cards from two of the three GPU manufacturers has led to speculation that it may also start with Nvidia Geforce cards.
Now Asrock has commented on this issue in an interview with the Korean channel Quasarzone (via video card). When asked if the company's future plans include Nvidia cards, an Asrock representative responded as follows:
– This is a difficult question. The companies that make Nvidia and AMD cards are Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI. These brands have been around longer than us, and when they were founded there were not only ATI and Nvidia, but other manufacturers like Elsa and Vodoo. No one had a monopoly-like position at that time […] From ASRock's point of view, with AMD and Intel making cards, it seems difficult for us to immediately start making Nvidia cards.
Asrock doesn't give a direct answer that rules out Nvidia cards, but with so many players and Nvidia's strong position, it's clear it could be difficult to make a profit. Videocardz points out how EVGA — which only made Geforce cards — gave up in 2022 and stopped making graphics cards altogether.
