Many gaming PC builders stock both AMD and NVIDIA video hardware to guarantee that they always have the fastest graphics. Not Origin PC, however -- it has had enough trouble with AMD that it's dropping all Radeon GPUs from its lineup. The company tells Engadget that it's responding to "customer experiences," support team demands and problems with both performance and stability. While there are still plenty of vendors that carry Radeon graphics, Origin PC's move is a blow to AMD's image; it suggests that the chip designer needs more than just advanced silicon to please gamers. Check out the full statement after the break.

This decision was based on a combination of many factors including customer experiences, GPU performance/drivers/stability, and requests from our support staff. Based on our 15+ years of experience building and selling award winning high-performance PCs, we strongly feel the best PC gaming experience is on NVIDIA GPUs.
