- Nvidia rumored to reintroduce GeForce Partner Program for Chinese laptop OEMs, forcing the exclusion of new AMD RX 6000M GPUs from most models
This shit should be prohibited.ID: h0mixli
It's not illegal if you are rich sID: h0mjemb
No /s. If you're rich, as you can see, you can pull this shit and nothing happens.
So you've got Nvidia making it difficult for AMD to get their GPUs in laptops, and you've got Intel pulling their own shady shit with laptop manufacturers to stifle AMD CPU performance due to poor cooling/thermal solutions.
In other words, big middle fingers to both Intel and Nvidia.ID: h0lqchl
And people put all 3 companies on the same level. Corporations are corporations are corporations, but some are worse than others.ID: h0mksth
Although I agree, it does presume AMD wouldn’t do the same in the same position. Hard to be sure about that.ID: h0m3qgm
I remember the first time I got brutally downvoted in this sub for saying something negative about NV. I was like , "this is".ID: h0m78tg
I would like to think people won't blindly trash NVIDIA or Intel just because this is /.
GPP fits very well with Chinese business/govt method called 'guanxi', basically bribes, kickbacks, turning a blind eye to mistakes by those who you do business with and corruption.ID: h0lyiso
guanxi literally just means "connections", it doesn't mean bribes, don't mislead peopleID: h0m9lcv
Yes, 关系 simply means relations or connections, but the net effect of how it plays out is essentially cronyism.ID: h0m3g21
the comment says "basically" so excuse the lack of accuracy/detail /sID: h0luwu6
China runs on this shit from the top to the bottom so it’s far more widespread and part daily culture
GPP in CCCPID: h0louky
GPP in CCCP
CCCP is the Soviet UnionID: h0lp39u
yes i am aware of that i was born in it.....
How dare you spread lies! Nvidia doesn't even consider a rebuttal worthy of their efforts! /s
"A lot has been said recently about our GeForce Partner Program. The rumors, conjecture and mistruths go far beyond its intent. Rather than battling misinformation, we have decided to cancel the program."
Nvidia blamed critics when they were forced to cancel the geforce partner program 2+ years ago in America after facing huge anti competitive backlashID: h0m4y7u
It was pointless anyway. Nobody even looks for Freesync monitors or GPUs by name anymore. They just swapped the Premium Branding (ROG for example) for generic premium branding (gsync compatible).
Also, corporations love to incentivize anything that gets them to the front of the line and keeps them there.
The OEM rebate game is crazy in China and AMD is also into it. Many Ryzen laptops can be found 30% to 50% cheaper in China compared to other regions, while equivalent Intel models are priced nearly the same inside or outside of China. Many Ryzen laptops won't even exists outside of China. For example last year I bought the HP Elitebook 835 G7 (dubbed Hp WarX 13") there, it costed ~$850 for nearly top end config with Ryzen 4750U, 16GB RAM, 100% SRGB screen, IR camera, AX Wifi, all that jazz, while similar SKU in any other countries would cost double. It made many Ryzen laptops flew off the shelf (and it sucked for other countries since OEM only focused on selling Ryzen laptops in China).
So I'm not sure what's Nvidia's angle here. If they cut down the rebate but AMD continues doing so, it means more Radeon laptops would be sold in China. Are they banking on AMD's limited chip supply meaning AMD won't have enough Radeon chips for other countries, so Nvidia would continue to dominate there?
Btw I think you should also probably include a link to the actual source. This is just a repost./1400015890427441153?s=21" class="reddit-press-link" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://twitter.com/bullsh1t_buste /1400015890427441153?s=21
Not allowed to link to random twitter accounts anymore going by rule 6.
The moderator just said that you can post any unsubstantiated rumors, leaks or claims so as long as it is not flair as news.
I really should have a Tweeter account.
Is there a source for this other than Twitter user “Bullsh1t_buster” ?
Currently no, hopefully other outlets and sources will investigate this claim. If it's true that NVIDIA is attempting another GPP type program, they deserve to be called out on it.
How does this post not violate Rule 6?
I guess people are testing the new rule 6.
Not flaired as news. Rule 6 does not apply.
Wow, the Twitter handle notebookcheck is referencing to as the source is some random, rabid AMD fanboi with a long history of calling people r_tards (in multiple different tweets, easy to find) and referring to Chinese leakers as ch_nks. Before the internet, people like this were out on street corners with cardboard signs in their hands, shouting and hollering crap at passers by
And he's obviously not providing any evidence or naming his source either. So he might as well have made it up.
How is notebookcheck even running with this story lmfao
I call bs on this, but then again knowing Novidea, I wouldn't put it past them.
Most other times gpp leaks have been correct.
that is very nVidia thing to do
Well, not like AMD can do anything about it since its from Taiwan, and Taiwan as a country, has less than friendly relations to China. They're still technically at war if you missed the subtext.
Taiwan is a country.
Why do people keep saying this? AMD is American, based in California.

Nvidia, always playing f*ng dirty
I hate more and more how nvidia is the goto gpu manufacturer if you don't want to compromise...
Really hope AMD will be able to compete with nvidia in future generations... Team red sure got closer this gen.
AMD would do the same if given the opportunity. AMD will get their turn soon enough. It is undeniable how good 5000 and 6000 series are. Sapphire or powercolor should do a laptop it's not like they make anything for intel or nvidia.
This seems like a lawsuit in the making
lol capitalism, much economically rational, such allocation of resources, wow
I swear, if AMD can ever get their drivers sorted out, I'll never spend another cent with Nvidia.
Nvidia are just so shamelessly dirty.
Can’t beat the competition so they build their own little play park
This is anti competitive shit right here
Fuck Nvidia, or any company that pulls this shit.
Most likely only going to effect CHINA sales. I doubt its going to effect sales in the US because Nvidia would open themselves up to lawsuits.
