BFG manufactured graphics cards for mainstream to enthusiast level computers. They were known for their Asylum brand; however, the NVIDIA 5x series of graphics accelerators were the last to use that name. They were best known by computer enthusiasts for the OC (Overclocked) versions of their graphics cards, lifetime warranty and 24/7/365 U.S. based technical support. BFG was among the first graphics card companies to offer cards that were already overclocked from manufacturer recommended speeds. Since then, many other manufacturers have copied BFG's model.

Their most recent flagship graphics cards were the BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 OCX as an air cooled solution and the BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 H2OC as a water cooled solution. While they also manufactured an air cooled version of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295, it was not overclocked.

On May 21, 2010, John Slevin the chairman of BFG Technologies, announced that they would no longer be developing graphics cards, as it was not profitable for them.

As of August 2010, BFG is in the process of liquidation, initially only for the GPU business but eventually expanded to include the entire company. As a result of this, BFG is not honoring RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) requests for warranty service, repair, or replacement any longer, instead returning the product to the customer with a short letter explaining the situation. The BFG brand name and certain assets of the company were subsequently acquired by Best Data, who also owns the Diamond Multimedia brand.
