[VR-Zone] ASUS Retaliates Against Gigabyte, Issues Official Statement - Page 3

post #21 of 34
I have never had a serious problem with an Asus board, and I have never known anyone with a problem with their Asus boards. I don't like the idea of a company lying about their products, but it doesn't make their products bad. The board still lowers overall power consumption regardless of the method used, and it is probably still very stable.

However, Gigabyte had a good reason to get this information out, leaked or not. If the common consumer saw that these new Asus boards had low power consumption along with maybe a few other features, and they read that this was a result of a certain chip, than they would probably discriminate against other boards lacking that chip when in reality these other boards do the same thing with software or otherwise.

Hopefully Asus will learn from this. It pains me to see a company that I had such confidence in make a move so dishonest.

After 1 DOA and a VRM issue with the second Crossfire I to have no desire to give them my money as I fight with a seemingly defective P5K too.
Asus, once a VERY FINE PRODUCT, I no longer believe that.

Newegg sent me an ad in the mail to purchase some of these ASUS EPU-equipped boards. For what it's worth.

i have had alot of problems with asus boards with nvidia chipsets as of late as well. but there are a few things i don't get, 1. what kind of evidence did Gigabyte give that the EPU was just software? i just heard their claims, i don't remember ever seeing any evidence. 2. what is so good about Japanese capacitors? is a capacitor made elsewhere less reliable or something? I don't remember Gigabyte giving any prof of the capacitors not being made in japan either, i just remember them saying that they weren't.

Pretty much anything made in China will be less reliable and/or toxic...

Well true, I did state in a previous post that admitadly it was gigabytes own evidence but you would think if it was merely a gigabyte hoax that Asus would have a response with some proof of thier own, not just an advert off the back of thier own box....

The reason that you see slides and not more information is..... Confidential Documents Not for Distribution


A reporter leaked this infomation in a pre-trade show meeting with Gigabyte. This information was not suppose to be released. Therefore, we don't have all the info.
Once again...
