That's pretty much all hearsay started by an article in DigiTimes. ASUS has made no official announcements through their investor channel and neither has Pegatron. Until that happens, I won't assume.

In addition, it really doesn't matter WHO is making their motherboards. It could be Ping Pong Corp for all I care.

It all comes down to the QA process ASUS has in place. They could manufacture their own boards in a gleaming facility, implement a shitty QA process and have bucketloads of issues. On the other hand, they can go to almost whoever they want and produce stellar products as long as they have a proper filtering process in place.

Remember, it is ASUS that institutes final technical specs, not their ODM. It is however ASUS' responsibility to ensure those specs are adhered to.
