A few months ago, Asus and Gigabyte announced that they'd be entering into a joint venture to build Gigabyte-branded motherboards and graphics cards.  An initial investment of $244M dollars was to be made, with Gigabyte owning 51% of the company.  It turns out the plan wasn't such a great idea and deal is off. "A spokesman of GIGABYTE said a resolution of the board of directors was passed on the Mar 22 to call off the plan of forming joint venture. It's explained the confusion of clients and suppliers, together with the changes of both internal and external factors has lead to this hard decision.

DigiTimes reports that Gigabyte will be transferring its motherboard and graphics card division over to the new joint venture with ASUS called Gigabyte United Incorporated. From January 2007 on, the joint venture will avoid competition between the two Tier-I vendors and allow the joint venture to utilize the resources of each company. Despite the fact that the retail motherboard and graphics card business will be heading towards the joint venture, Gigabyte will remain a key ODM partner for outsourced graphics card and motherboard production.

  When Intel unleashed the Core 2 back in July, they introduced the P965 as their mainstream chipset, while the 975X Express chipset was upgraded with Core 2 support to cover the high-end enthusiast segment. However, the P965 didn't end up being 'just' a mainstream product. As production boards utilizing the P965 chipset began to appear in droves, the enthusiast crowd quickly realized that it was more than just a mid-range chipset when it came to performance. Several manufacturers also took the initiative and beefed up their P965 boards with impressive feature sets that exceed those found on some high-end 975X Express...

Asustek and Gigabyte, two of the largest motherboard makers in the world, recently announced that they will be joining forces to build a new company that will combine production of their motherboard and graphics card products. This comes after rumors that Gigabyte was in danger of being bought out by their competitor, Foxconn.

DigiTimes reports this morning that some motherboard sources are indicating that Asustek might be preparing to merge and acquire the rival motherboard vendor Gigabyte. As the top-selling motherboard vendor, Asustek has been facing stiff competition from Foxconn and would be able to leverage the stronger distribution of Gigabyte to help ensure they remain on the top of Tier-I companies. To put things in perspective, the merger would grant Asustek an overwhelming 45% of the overall worldwide motherboard market. Then again, this is not the first time Gigabyte's name has been involved in merger rumors as we witnessed a similar rumor back in March where MSI was supposedly poised to acquire the... Read more...

Now that the dual-GPU GeForce 7950 GX2 has hit the streets, the GeForce 7900 GTX is no longer NVIDIA's flagship desktop graphics adapter. But that doesn't mean it should all of a sudden be disregarded and brushed aside as an afterthought for a high-end gaming rig. In fact, the 7900 GTX may even become a more attractive option for some as its price inevitably drops over the coming the weeks and months. It's not like the 7900 GTX has suddenly become a bad performer, just because a more powerful and more expensive option has come along. We've got a new GeForce 7900 GTX on the test-bench today, courtesy of Gigabyte. The GV-NX79X512DB-RH we'll be looking at here doesn't stray... Read more...

  Trends in PC hardware usually come about for a good reason.  As processor and memory speeds continued to rise, many manufacturers responded by producing more elaborate air cooling apparatuses.  Some of them worked well, while others offered almost no improvement at all.  In either case, lowering temperatures in this way usually resulted in an unwanted side effect: excessive noise.  As high-speed fans were placed over this and that chipset, the cacophony of whirring and buzzing machinery became a little more than most users were willing to bear.  So the next trend to come along was to not only cool down a PC, but to do so with more style and less noise. ...
