EncryptionI don't care much for ATI cards. I am using a FTW3 2080ti Ultra with a 1080sc and of course both are EVGA. PSU is platinum 1600w EVGA. My focus is on the AMD CPUs. Thread linked above is a whole lot of fanboy-ism on both parts. I am just going to go for what I feel like I need regardless of Intel, Nvidia, AMD, or ATI. ATI has nothing on par with my 2080ti and they can barely make anything on par with even my 1080gtx so they don't even enter my radar, but... if they did make something on par with the 2080ti then I would certainly be willing to give one of those cards a shot.AMD cpus however are starting to gain more traction. Intel has certainly lost me for the foreseeable future and soon I will be rebuilding 5 other rigs in this house. All of them are Intel for the moment but I have been bidding my time watching AMDs progress with their Ryzen line of cpus and I am starting to see really good things come from their cpu line of business. I have had nothing but issues on the Zenith Extreme and I am on my second RMA of this board but the latest bios has cleared up a lot of the memory troubles I was having for almost a damn year and now this 1950x is screaming like it should have from the word go. I hope EVGA will consider heavily the trends of the current markets. Do not let companies like AMD, Intel, or NVidia lock you into a contract that would put EVGA between a rock and a hard place should their quality slide. Edit:Look at my join date. I have been quiet all these years because I have been happy. I build EVGA. I still push the EVGA GPUs and PSUs, but I can't push Intel any more and so I am now looking for a board manufacturer who builds solid quality boards. My mistake for thinking Asus was still that.. it is unfortunate how far they have fallen.
RainStrykeIt won't happen... EVGA is Nvidia's only exclusive partner, which is the main reason it won't happen. We've been asking EVGA to make AMD motherboards for 10+ years and they've ignored every one of those requests. It's just like asking them to offer more competitive pricing on shipping through the EVGA store, they refuse to change or even look into anything. I suspect it takes too much effort. Not being innovative will only hurt them in the long run, which is funny because that's been EVGA's motto for a long time.
