Remember when Asus and MSI were accused of sending tweaked graphics cards to reviewers? Well, EVGA certainly did and, in response, the company came up with a cheeky marketing campaign that boldly mentions: With EVGA, What You See Is What You Get.
EVGA is brand that’s well known amongst many gamers and PC enthusiasts. Unlike MSI and ASUS, EVGA exclusively manufactures graphics cards based on Nvidia’s reference designs. In a special webpage dedicated to its newest marketing campaign, EVGA has managed to list out reviews of its GPUs by various well known PC reviewers – to show consumers how awesome (or not) its graphics cards are, of course. What makes this page even more interesting however, is the following statement by EVGA:
EVGA was one of the first graphics card companies to offer overclocked graphics cards, and since day one EVGA always delivered the exact same products to reviewers as well as customers. EVGA does not “fake” reviews or send out products with “tweaked” clockspeeds to reviewers. With EVGA Superclocked, FTW and Classified graphics cards, what you see is what you get.
Interestingly, there have not been any response given by both MSI and Asus regarding the “modified” review sample matter yet; which seems quite odd given the scale of the issue. Nonetheless, EVGA’s propaganda page can be found here.
