Nvidia Corp.'s latest generation of graphics processing units known as Fermi may actually a nail in the coffin of BFG Technologies, an Nvidia-exclusive supplier of graphics boards. According to a media report, the company could not get enough GeForce GTX 400-series graphics boards this spring to ensure high cash flow.

"BFG’s problems were largely graphics card related, but not related to GTX 200. Sales and profit margins on that card were quite good actually. The biggest problem was GTX 400 (Fermi) allocation," an unnamed source told [H]ard|OCP web-site.

Earlier this week it transpired that BFG is unable to repair graphics cards or replace them with new ones. The company, which was known for lifetime or ten years warranties as well as 24/7 technical support blamed its supplier to inability to respect warranties. BFG said it was in process of liquidating its business.

The company primarily known for graphics cards also could not sell its power supply units (PSUs) on time.

"The only reason they continued to sell power supplies after they got out of the graphics card business was because there were power supplies to sell. But they couldn’t sell them as quickly as they had been used to because once Best Buy caught wind of BFG not being able to supply graphics cards, they dropped selling their power supply product line as well," the source reportedly said.

apparently, NVIDIA offered FERMI to BFG, although in a slim/low volume (we all know that, yield problem at TSMC).. BFG turned down that offer, because they feel the profit margin of FERMI won't be good enough for them, and they will stick with GTX 200 series..

Maybe they should have canned NV and started to sell AMD
