Mass Resignations? – EVGA’s position in the motherboard market appears to be in jeopardy

EVGA's position in the motherboard market is in jeopardy as the company's entire Taiwan HQ reportedly resigns

EVGA’s HQ has reportedly been hit with mass employee resignations that include high profile overclocker KINGPIN

– Update – EVGA has released the following statement regarding its mass resignation rumours. 

    Our Taiwan office is still operating and Kingpin is still with EVGA.

EVGA is still in business and supporting its customers.


Last year, EVGA left the GPU market, citing a poor working relationship with Nvidia amongst other reasons ahead of Nvidia’s RTX 40 series launch. With graphics cards being EVGA’s largest earning product segment, it was questionable whether or not EVGA would be able to succeed long-term. Without GPU sales, EVGA would be forced to downsize, and many of EVGA’s GPU-focused employees would be forced to leave the company. Now, it looks like EVGA’s in a shaky position, with reports today claiming that the company has suffered mass resignations at the company’s Taiwan HQ. 

Outside of graphics cards, EVGA is known for making motherboards, CPU coolers, power  supplies, PC cases, and some PC accessories, and but these market segments are nowhere close to being the size of the company’s GPU division when it was active. At this time it is unclear what is happening over at EVGA in Taiwan, how many employees have left the company, and what areas of the company these employees will impact. 

Reports have claimed that all of EVGA’s staff from their Taiwan office have resigned, though this has not been confirmed. It has also been reported that these resignations include Vince “KINGPIN” Lucido, the renowned overclocker behind EVGA’s “KINGPIN” series products.

EVGA’s reported mass resignations could spell the end of EVGA as we know it. Depending on which employees have left the company, it is possible that EVGA could be forced to exit some market. If KINGPIN has left the company, EVGA will not be able to design and create future KINGPIN branded products, and if KINGPIN’s colleagues have left alongside him, EVGA could be forced to exit the motherboard market. 

Since this story is still developing, we will work to update this article whenever we can as new information becomes available. For now, EVGA appears to be in a tricky position, one that could set the PC hardware manufacturer in a downward spiral.
