Abit to stop making motherboards by the end of the year?

By on September 1, 2008, 12:08 PM
Rumors of abitís exit from the motherboard business have been around for some time. But even though the company says they remain just as committed to motherboards as ever, a new report by UK tech site Hexus claims to have received confirmation from industry sources that the opposite is true.

Apparently abit will continue to deliver mainboards until the end of the year, with warranty claims and RMAs to be honored for a further 3 years. Abit has so far declined to comment, but this follows reports from last month that the company was dismissing employees from many departments, including those who previously worked on the Fatal1ty and MAX series of motherboards.

According to Hexus, abit will be shifting towards consumer electronics devices such as the FunFab digital photo frame with integrated printer that was demoed at this year's Computex along with other photo related products.
