This video documents the behind-the-scenes of the EVGA GPU division. The company has exited manufacturing video cards, but for now, the crew remains at EVGA working on final projects and supporting customers. We were given the unique and privileged opportunity to tour EVGA's repair center, film processes previously secret, and show the teamwork that went into building EVGA. We were originally just going to do a tour of the repair center, but it wasn't until we had a reason -- the tragic loss of EVGA's last cards capable of world records -- that we realized the story underneath. This morphed from being a simple tour to being a deeper piece outlining the relationships of the people at EVGA, the teamwork that went in at every individual's level to make a good product, and the contributions made across all departments of the company. We learned first-hand how relatively few people made EVGA tick, and all because each is an expert in their field. We felt a great sense of responsibility to document how the team worked together, if only for their own future nostalgia, and we're happy you're along for the ride. We gave as many people the spotlight as we could for this one, from the OC team to the repair team. We spent 5-figures and a month working on this video, so please share and support if you can!

@999adam999 Because NVIDIA are absolutely relentless with how they treat and strongarm their AIB partners. EVGA basically said they have been bullied, not listened to and even outright lied to for so many years they just don't have the willpower to continue working with them. In that nature, the GPU market for them was apparently not even that profitable, so they just peaced out for good.

@Legacy Political keep in mind, the best-paying videos for LTT are like, tens of k-s on ad revenue. GN is not as mainstream, so they probably can't expect the same. This video is probably made at a loss even when not considering the work hours, when only figuring AdSense revenue. Maybe they can make a profit if enough people buy coasters.

@camelCased Maybe their foreign warranty centers just hand back good cards from a stockpile, then ship the bad ones back in bulk to be turned into crates filled with remanufactured cards for future warranty cases. This reduces shipping costs while still getting the savings from reusing parts from dead boards.

@camelCased That's probably one of the reasons you pay a premium over other cards.

@rymns The only Nvidia card I ever personally used in a gaming PC was a 1060. I was so underwhelmed that got a Vega 56. I ran that card so hard that It died on me. I got a 5600xt and haven't looked back. Best GPU I've ever used to date. I know that there are better GPUs out there, but I can't afford them right now nor do I game hard enough on desktop to justify the purchase.

This was an absolutely incredible bittersweet sendoff. Big ups to EVGA for even allowing the GN team the opportunity to document these trade secrets and to the GN team for their trademark professionalism and honest journalism. I put my trust in EVGA as a die-hard lifelong GPU customer of theirs, and after all these documentaries, I'm happy to see concrete and irrefutable proof that my faith wasn't misplaced. This series of videos had some serious love poured into them. It's really hard to put into words. We're losing one of the good ones, the few that are left. Again, thanks GN team for all the work yall put in. I'm glad you were able to bring this part of history to us. :)

EVGA is the reason why I go Nvidia for GPUs. I haven't even been comparing their lineup against other manufacturers. I trusted EVGA, loved the performance from their products, so I've never bothered looking elsewhere for a GPU. Looking online at other people's rigs, I noticed EVGA to be a dominant brand when it came to GPUs. Nvidia screwed the pooch.

I'm glad that biso biso still holds one of those top spots. It's tragic how quickly he lost two of them though. Awesome video though, it was incredible to see the team behind the best video cards in the industry. The repair center coverage was truly impressive! Going through the effort to recover as much of a RMA'd card as possible like they do is really something special. I thought that only Buildzoid had the time to do something like that, but I guess with the right people and enough resources, it can be profitable to go through that effort. Removing and re-balling the GPU core was something I really didn't expect, I can imagine it should speed up repairs significantly and also significantly reduces waste. If Buildzoid gets dead silicon, he's outta luck, but here it just goes onto a new board! I was afraid that meant the dead board would get scrapped, but knowing that they immediately take the now GPU-less board and probe it to figure out where it went wrong and see if it's recoverable is awesome.

@ProVishGaming this isnt their “job”, its their passion. Their hard work and love for the industry really shines through in their quality. Flipping burgers is a job. Data entry is a job. This is what they love. Smh. I bet youre real fun at parties lmao

@ProVishGaming It's like tipping your waiter/waitress for excellent service, but with the added benefit of getting something in return. While you are correct to say there is no need to do so, there is also no need to give someone a hard time for doing it.

@ProVishGaming That's kind of like saying "bro, it's their job to make good food. They already make a lot of money from other customers. No need for you to pay for the sandwich" - watching (for free) is the best way to support us, but the best way to support our ability to make expensive videos like this is more direct. Not everyone needs to directly support, of course; however, I think we've proven that we reinvest it all back into what we do publicly.

This was pretty damn cool for you to do. My current card is EVGA and I live by their PSU's.... such a great company who will be missed in the realm of GPU's

Just wow, so bittersweet. Amazing video, about amazing content, and amazing people. Fascinating to see EVGA's "punk" attitude, and the way you presented it is first class. Will be sad to see EVGA pulled from the GPU market, but so thankful you continue your outstanding work. Thank you!

Feels more like a 'Next Chapter' for these EVGA guys rather than a farewell. All of these guys will be doing bigger better things in the very near future

sometimes i kinda wish that the other gpu aib companies would leave nvidia too because that would hurt nvidias income for sure and then they can focus their teams on making the most badass amd gpu or even intel gpu

@friedkangaroo it was an exclusivity agreement they had with Nvidia. There wasn't so much a legal binding as much as it was an honor binding, which in East Asian countries is pretty much as good as a legal binding, lest they bring shame on their families... I think

a little bittersweet seeing that whole repair crew do such intricate, diligent work knowing they're still eventually losing that job...i've worked in manufacturing my whole life across metalworking, electronics and tech, and it's obvious to me that they performed their tasks with dignity...job security be damned, they can't help themselves but pursue excellence as usual, GN shows them the respect they deserve here, kudos to you guys and especially to the EVGA people who clearly just enjoyed doing the hard work

GN did an excellent piece with this. Had I seen this years sooner, I'd have been an EVGA fanboy all the way thru. Really bitter-sweet to see the INSANE level of skill and teamwork right at the very end of an era.

Kris fix bugs me, hes told time and time again how to do things by the book and ignores it. Says a lot about his maturity. He still insructs people to remove a steering arm by impacting the stud of the balljoint. Aggressively mind you. You only need a vibrational tap on the side.. He doesnt even meet shade tree standards.

What an amazing piece of content this is, y'all really brought this to life, so thank you so very much for sharing it with all of us! I've always loved the stuff with Vince, Tin, and Team EVGA. They're such genuine people who love what they do, and while it's definitely sad that it went down the way it did, this is an awesome, I'd say PERFECT way to bring their GPU division to a close. A genuine 'into the sunset' moment! I absolutely love biso biso! His story (so far!) is such an awesome one. The once unknown overclocker, only really known from the leaderboards, at EVGA's headquarters setting records like it's nothing! I don't know what convinced Vince to track him down, but I'm so glad he did, the guy is an absolute treasure. Oh yeah, and he's a fu*kin' certified legend! What a team! Also, on a semi-related note, I'm kinda excited to see what Vince does with the e-bike stuff. I'll admit though, I'm a little worried that I'm gonna look up one day and he'll be trying to push The damn e-bike into orbit! If he does that like he does his custom EVGA hardware, well, that'll be cool. I think it'd be tough to pass up a custom kingpin e-bike! Thanks again to both the EVGA team, and the GN team; this is a treasure and I'm so glad y'all put this together! Thank you! 😀🐧

​@rkan2 that may be the case, but, considering their lack of resources (not in terms of equipment, but on firmware), what they did was really impressive.

Wow such good content, and what team! I will cherish my EVGA RTX 3080 black cards and will miss getting a new GPU for EVGA in the future. EVGA has been my go-to graphic card company for the last decade.

This video honestly put a smile on my face. After EVGA announced that they're exiting the GPU market, I ended up buying a 3090ti (moving from a 3080) because I want to own their best GPU. I'm going to miss them in the graphics card market, but I'll try to support their other products in the future.

I'm going to stop halfway to tell you that you've made an excellent documentary, and thank you for it. In my eyes, this isn't a regular youtube video, tech or otherwise; this is a bonafide documentary about the last days of EVGA, and it's quite emotional. You did a great job getting the tension across.

Just insane. I only ever bought EVGA cards just for this very reason... They were excellent and easy to come by. These cards are as sentimental as a car or or a childs favorite toy. I bought a used EVGA GTX 680 sometime in 2013. That card was with me through some of the worst times in my life. I still have it, wrapped in an antistatic bag in the box of old parts.
