Better late than never. Among existing GPU players like Asus, Sapphire, XFX and Zotac, Gigabyte VGA officially made its announcement that its GPUs will be available here. This is something that we’ve already pointed it out earlier before noticed it. How well they do it is something remains to be seen. As always, we’ll review Gigabyte GPUs just like how we always do with other hardware.
The distribution is handled by Ingram Micro, but the service is handled by Accel Frontline. Gigabyte assured in its press release that it GPUs carry 3-year warranty period.
Edit (14.10.2014): I couldn’t help but notice that Nvidia India’s announcement that Gigabyte VGA will be selling exclusive Nvidia GPUs.
Well, Nvidia has many AiB partners, but I am speculating that what they’re trying to say is that Gigabyte VGA India will only sell Nvidia graphic cards. In any case, I’ve asked Gigabyte VGA India team to confirm and I’ll post it here once we get an update.[showhide type=”pressrelease”]
