EVGA is a US-based computer hardware company passionate about its community. The company produces NVIDIA graphics cards (GPUs), motherboards, and gaming accessories. For many, the face of EVGA has been industry veteran Jacob Freeman.

Jacob and his team drive community engagement and take a lot of what they are told by their fans to heart. One of the things they did that helped their community the most was their GPU purchase queueing system. This helped their fans get graphics cards for gaming and content creation without dealing with scalpers and price gouging.

Stephen and Winston have an amazing opportunity to talk to Jacob about his work at EVGA and how it translates to new products down the road.
