I’m sure they are smart engineers but it sounds to me like they have expertise in integrating Nvidia’s GPU’s on PCIe for x86-64 architecture hardware instead of designing the chips. They sound like they have the skill set to make a system using chips made by Red Semiconductor. I’m not trying to say they can’t contribute to libre-soc right now, just that the skill set they were hired for at EVGA will probably be more useful to libre-soc once we have working silicon.
