Sad to see them leave.

Sad to see them go. I still remember my old NF7-S and learning to overclock with it. That rig is probably still up and running at my parents house. Think its running a Athlon XP 2100 with nice little water cooling set up from Cooler master (so old school). Great boards from those guys and i think the only company to fess up to the capacitors with the bad electrolyte compound a long time ago. I was hoping they would come out with some nice mobos for when PhenomII get released, but i guess not to be. Sad to see a good company go.

This is no shocker for me, but I will truly miss them. Their customer support started going down the drain back in 2006, if not earlier.

I still have two KT7A-RAID boards that are working and my main NF4 KN9 rig is kickin' it strong. My secondary rig, which I just setup recently with a $25 BE-2400 is on an abit AN-M2HD (nicest quality budget microATX I've used thus far).

I was a loyal abit fan, but now I'll ship guns to DFI's new boards hopefully for Phenom II.

My first OC was on an Abit. And I'm typing this on an abit-based machine. I always liked their products. It seems they were one of, if not THE first to do the heatpipe cooled mobos that are so common now.

just this week, Tweaktown received word that USI would dissolve Abit entirely on 31st of December. This would mean that the expected 3-year warranty period would need to be handled by USI directly, or not at all. Fortunately, after being contacted by Hardware Info, Universal Abit sales manager Fernando Benito ensured the community that, while the company will no longer produce motherboards, it will not be closing down entirely.

“ABIT will definitely continue to manufacture products, these will not be motherboards and we have not got a 100% clear picture yet on what products will be made... Products now made by USI that are not sold to OEM's will get the ABIT branding.”

Abit claims that despite the cease in motherboard production, it won't be going anywhere. But the abit that we all know will soon become only a memory, as it is shifting focus from enthusiast hardware to consumer electronics, such as the FunFab digital photo frame that was unveiled at Computex; a change that is clearly noticeable just from looking at the company's home page.

I can't say it's a bad move for them. All five of their hardcore fans will be sad to see them go?

Honestly it's not much of a a hit for the high-end PC business, but it's still sad. Means other companies are having a hard time too.
