A recent report from Kyle Bennet over at HardOCP has found some very interesting information about NVIDIA's new GeForce Partner Program. What is the GeForce Partner Program? You can read NVIDIA's own blog post about the program, but the whole idea behind the program is to, "ensure that gamers have full transparency into the GPU platform and software they’re being sold, and can confidently select products that carry the NVIDIA GeForce promise." This all sounds great, but when Kyle was approached by AMD to take a closer look into NVIDIA's GPP he found evidence that this new program aims to push board partners to not release products from other manufacturers, mainly AMD.
