Our colleague Kyle Bennett from HardOCP has spoken with his trusted industry sources and found out that big names like Dell and HP haven’t penned the deal with NVIDIA to join the GeForce Partner Program (GPP). HP recently introduced their updated Pavilion Gaming
lineup with both AMD and NVIDIA graphics card options, which goes to show that the computer giant hasn’t aligned its gaming brand exclusively with NVIDIA. On the other hand, their Omen Gaming boxes weren’t available with AMD graphics cards, which Kyle has noted could be a product of a supply issue. In other news, NVIDIA hasn’t been able to convince Lenovo, one of the big three OEMs, to join their cause either. Lenovo Legion gaming products were still listed on their website with graphics cards from the red team. HardOCP has reached out to NVIDIA once again to inquire about which brands have comitted to GPP, but they were met with silence.
While brands like ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI are siding with NVIDIA, Dell and HP are the real big players in the game. No other manufacturer comes close to purchasing and moving the amount of mid-end and low-end graphics cards from NVIDIA like those two do. It doesn’t really come as a surprise why NVIDIA wants them to jump onboard so desperately. Kyle’s behind-the-scene conversations with this sources suggest that neither Dell or HP will NVIDIA twist their arms as they consider GPP to be unethical and illegal.
