They have an AM3 board- the 790FXB-M3H5. 790FX + SB750, it even supports Thuban. Great board.

They also planned on a UT 790FXB-M3eH7 but that one never made it to market. No plans were ever talked about for 8 series boards or anything from Intel past 1156.

They singlehandedly put the tweaker-friendly OC boards on the map. It's a shame really, I still have great memories of the NF4 SLI-DR.

Gigabyte and MSI basically copied the DFI formula.

DFI was almost always the best at getting the absolute most out of chipsets whether that be highest FSB speeds or getting CPUs to run that no one thought possible (still have my ICFX3200-T2R that everyone kept saying would never support 45nm Wolfdale/Yorkfield because it used ATI's last Intel chipset the RD600 before the AMD bought them, but DFI somehow made it happen), I'd wager their downfall hinged around 3 primary reasons

1. with motherboard chipsets becoming less important with the integration of the more and more northbridge features into the CPU, there simply was less and less DFI could do to stand apart

2. their boards simply weren't as user friendly as others were, and they carried a price premium, it just wasn't worth it for a majority of the more casual enthusiasts to bother with squeezing the extra few % out of their system

3. the slump in the world economy a few years ago lead to several previously siginificant manufacturers scaling back if not flat out going under all together (Abit is another example)
