[tcMag] Gigabyte responds to Asus' EPU talk back

Following Asus' denial of the results regarding its motherboard's energy efficiency, results provided by Gigabyte, the latter has decided on issuing a response that keeps the ball rolling but dims down the tone of the press release battle.

Leaving aside the PR filling, Gigabyte's response states the following:

GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards would like to respond to recent statements by our competitor alleging GIGABYTE has made false claims against them. These statements were made in response to a report GIGABYTE detailed for the media which compared GIGABYTE’s 4-Gear and 6-Gear Dynamic Energy Saver technology to our competitor’s non-phase change and 2-Gear Phase changing energy saving technology. In addition, direct comparisons and testing results were reported between the GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L motherboard and our competitor’s P5K-SE EPU.

While GIGABYTE would like to express regret over any confusion this situation may have caused our competitor’s customers, we do stand by our statements and testing report 100%, and eagerly await our competitor to clarify the issues we raised in order to avoid any further confusion.

Round Two!

It seems like Gigabyte have taken a step back in aggression but I still think they are asserting their point in the nicest non anti-ASUS manner.

Wait. What?

Gigabyte is apologizing for tests, which they still believe to be correct?

That doesn't make any sense. You only apologize when you're wrong.

Me: I'm a monkey
You: No you're not, you're a man.
Me: Not true, I'm a monkey.
You: Oh, sorry. You're a man.

What?!

Maybe I'm just not understanding everything here.

They are not apologizing for their tests. They are apologizing for any confusion that may have arisen from their tests.
Which actually means "No offence but we just report what the tests conclude"
