EVGA denies that company is shutting down and exiting PC business

Online rumor has sparked a fervent discussion that EVGA is shutting up shop. But, those rumors appear to be unfounded, or so the company claims.

EVGA, the PC part maker, was allegedly prepping to exit the PC business. The rumor first came from a South Korean forum in which a post stated that all of EVGA’s Taiwanese staff have resigned.

Originally posted by an overclocker who frequents the forum, the news has already caused some confusion as parts of EVGA remain quiet about the situation. The CoolEnjoy forum post reads:

“We wanted to share some news about EVGA. It has been reported that all employees of the EVGA Taiwan office have now left (including Kingpin).

“It looks like the company is going out of business locally. I don’t know what will happen with warranty issues, but I hope EVGA users don’t have any issues with this.

“I’m curious to see what happens next. We’ll have to wait for an official statement from EVGA.”

So, that begs the question, is the esteemed PC part manufacturer really shutting up shop? Despite this rumor circulating among several outlets, don’t count EVGA out just yet.

Is EVGA shutting down?


EVGA is not planning to shut down. In a statement provided to TechPowerUp, the company claims: “We saw those message and they are rumors. Our Taiwan office is still operating and Kingpin is still with EVGA. EVGA is still doing business and supporting its customers. Thanks for reaching out,”

The manufacturer is best known for GPUs and motherboards, as well as other key components in PCs. Last year, the company caused a huge shift in the market, as they announced they’d be ending any partnerships with Nvidia after feeling disrespected by the company.

There is very little detail on what EVGA is working on, as the manufacturer has recently cut down the warranty claims on their PSUs to just three years. In addition to this, it’s been quite some time since we have seen any new products launched by the company. Regardless, the existence of this rumor does spark intrigue.

We’ve reached out to the US and Taiwan teams, but have yet to hear back at the time of writing.
