Gigabyte and ASUS Form Strategic Alliance

Taipei , Taiwan ; August 8, 2006 – Gigabyte Technology and ASUSTeK Computer Inc. today announced their strategic alliance in motherboards and graphics cards by forming a joint-venture producing Gigabyte branded motherboards.

The new company will have an initial capital of NT$8 billion, with 51% of the company being controlled by Gigabyte and 49% by ASUS. The new subsidiary is expected to be fully operational in January of 2007. Under the agreement, the chairman of the joint venture will be appointed by Gigabyte, as well as three board directors and one board supervisor on the board of directors. The remaining two seats on the board will be assigned by ASUSTeK.

Dude, where have you been? With Core 2 and AM2 coming out, some of the best motherboards for those lines is from ASUS.

The time of A8N is over, baby. :D

This merger should increase the game for the whole motherboard industry, as two of the largest manufacturers are banding together. :D It's like the Seagate and Maxtor merger.
