Abit exits mainboard market - confirmed
 
Can't seem to post in the news forum ...

''HEXUS.channel can exclusively confirm that Taiwanese technology company abit, which is associated primarily with high-end and gaming mainboards, will stop producing all mainboards at the end of 2008.''

Well, then my AS8-3rd Eye may be worth just a little more than it did yesterday...

there were good in the 90s then came back for a short stint recently but it'll be sad to see a good company go.

Wow, I never would have expect this but then again Abit has been lacking in the motherboard department lately.

I certainly don't associate Abit with high end and gaming boards...

I owned a IP-35 Pro for about 6 months and it wasn't half bad. Nothing compared to the Maximus Formula I'm using now but it was about half of the price. Kind of suprising since I heard pretty good things about their last few boards.

Well the IP35-Pro was a hit.

enaberif August 28, 2008 06:59 PM

IP35-Pro was one of the best overclockers in its class and I absolutely proved that with my e8400 and I'd keep it but its time to upgrade :D
