Abit To Shutdown Completely

Posted March 4, 2009 by Jake in News

It seems a former Goliath, abit, having been known for manufacturing high-end motherboards and even video cards, is in the cusp of complete shutdown. We reported that the manufacturer was scuttling motherboard manufacturing, but as it turns out, the entire company is on the chopping block, scheduled to shutdown in about a month. abit is apparently only staying open now to deal with warranties on products already sold, and has no other operations in effect.

There certainly doesn’t seem to be any sales and marketing operation any more. Marketing director Thore Welling sent us an email early this morning in which he said: “After 20 years in the market the abit brand now bids farewell, so it’s also time for me now to lock the doors of the marketing department. That’s it for good now.”

Sad to see abit go, we’ll have a pint in your honour.
