Default How Motherboards Are Made: A Gigabyte Factory Tour

As PCSTATS recent trip to Gigabyte's Nan-Ping factory in Taiwan showed us, there's a lot more to it. In fact, producing and testing a single motherboard involves a mind-boggling host of automated machines, people and processes; so we'd like to detail the whole assembly line we toured while covering Computex, to give you a feel for how things are really made.

lol, I got a laugh out of the Complain Less on that sign. If only we could apply that here to some people I know.

Very interesting though, so much tehcnology involved it's insane.

Crazy. Imagine the mindnumbingness of that assembly line.

What I'm wondering is why they're calling this a "recent" trip, when the manufacturing process shows socket 478s and i865 chipsets!

Awesome.

"Each system is run through several hundred loops of 3D Mark 2001 in 40C temperatures. This tests stability under the most grueling of conditions."

Lol they should hire me and I will show them what we really do to these boards..
