AMD’s Vice President & GM Radeon Gaming confirms NVIDIA’s attempts to restrict or block AIBs from selling AMD GPUs

The endless fight between AMD and NVIDIA continues. A couple of days ago, we informed you about AMD officially working with AIBs in order to launch new “gaming” brands for its GPUs. And yesterday, AMD’s Vice President & GM Radeon Gaming has confirmed that NVIDIA has been trying to restrict or blocks AIBs from selling AMD’s GPUs under their already established gaming brands.

In a series of tweets, Scott Herkelman revealed that some of the resellers that attended AMD’s sales event in London told him that NVIDIA tried to use funding and allocation to restrict or block them from selling Radeon products.

These tweets basically confirm HardOCP’s story. As HardOCP claimed last month, the NVIDIA  GPP program prohibited – among other things – third-party GPU manufacturers to use their gaming brand label on both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs. And right now, there is no doubt that this story was legit.
