Fans of BFG video cards have some bad news to deal with as of today, though not as bad as it could be.  BFG is backing out of the video card business gracefully; there will be no new cards available which is an unhappy occurrence for those hoping to stick with BFG for their next upgrade.  This is also going to be a damper on anyone hoping to take advantage of their popular trade up program.  All is not lost for those currently using a BFG card as tech support is still available as is RMA service, ensuring that BFG is making good on the warranties that were offered with the purchase of a BFG graphics card.

This will give BFG the ability to focus on other component product lines such as their power supplies and perhaps more importantly it will let them expand their lineups of gaming laptops and PCs.

Libertyville, IL – May 18, 2010 – BFG Technologies today announced their exit from the graphics card category. The company will continue to sell their line of BFG Tech power supplies as well as their Deimos gaming notebooks and Phobos gaming systems.

“After eight years of providing innovative, high-quality graphics cards to the market, we regret to say that this category is no longer profitable for us, although we will continue to evaluate it going forward”, said John Slevin, chairman of BFG Technologies. “We will continue to provide our award-winning power supplies and gaming systems, and are working on a few new products as well. I’d like to stress that we will continue to provide RMA support for our current graphics card warranty holders, as well as for all of our other products such as power supplies, PCs and notebooks.”

BFG will continue to offer RMA, telephone and email support for qualified BFG Tech graphics card warranty holders, but will no longer be bringing new graphics card products to market.
