    Gigabyte Technology on November 7 announced that it will transfer its existing own-brand desktop PC motherboard and graphics cards business to Gigabyte United Incorporated, a joint venture it will establish with Asustek Computer in January 2007. Gigabyte and Asustek signed a strategic-alliance agreement for the joint venture on August 8 of this year, according to Gigabyte chairman Dandy Yeh. Gigabyte United will have an initial capital of NT$8.0 billion, with Gigabyte and Asustek holding a 51% and 49% stake, respectively. Gigabyte United will have permanent and exclusive licensed use of the Gigabyte brand and trademark for making and marketing desktop motherboards and graphics cards. The strategic alliance with Asustek will avoid competition between the two companies and will integrate the resources of each for better competitiveness.
