For GTC Taiwan and Computex 2018

Geforce Partner Program RIP
Geforce Partner Program is officially terminated, as of last Friday, and it makes Nvidia look guilty as hell. Nvidia - a massively dominating player - has close to 75 percent of discrete market share, but this varies up and down from quarter to quarter.
