I like how ASUS did their anouncement with some class, and Gigabyte just came out and called them liars. I wouldn't buy a Gigabyte board anyway, but after their little childish stunt, I definitely don't want to give them any business.
It is one thing to talk about the compeition and present information in a classy method, it is another to just call them liars and attack them. Gigabyte's media stunt just backfired on them because it lost them respect from me, and I'm sure many others, and ASUS's response gained them more respect from me. Gigabyte's oriignal attack sounds like a fanboy postings on a forum.
