Just before NVIDIA unveiled its GeForce RTX 40 series, EVGA had announced it will not participate in this and any other GPU launch moving forward. The company has completely abandoned the GPU market and will now focus on other PC components.

The departure of EVGA from the GPU business was a massive blow to many graphics enthusiast fans and to make matters worse, the company’s prototype showcased weeks later was actually a very well looking card.

It was confirmed that EVGA made a few engineering samples of RTX 4090 FTW3 card before the decision to cancel the project was made. Some of those prototypes were given to the most popular YouTubers working closely with EVGA. But EVGA still has a few cards left and one of those cards has just ended up on eBay.
