[TH] MSI CEO Dead at 56

Quote:
A leading hardware company has lost its leader. Earlier today in Taiwan, MSI general manager and CEO Charles Chiang passed away after falling from one of the company’s buildings. Chiang, 56, had been with MSI for more than two decades before taking over as chief executive in 2019.

MSI didn't elaborate on the circumstances surrounding Chiang's death.

People generally don't just "fall" from a building. He either jumped or was pushed.
Probably.

Suicide is likely, but you never know forsure. There's certainly enough going on in the world that could leave someone suicidal.

(If y'all) ain’t ready for the old murder, then what you gonna do with the new me?

Checked my Amazon purchase history for MSI cards and I bought two MSI 1080 8gb three years ago that went in two pc systems. Saved one of the boxes. Those cards got replaced with Nvidia brand RTX but still have memories.

Had some MSI motherboards in 2007-2008 that were hot garbage. Haven't touched the brand since aside from downloading Afterburner.
