    Walton-Chaintech announced a partnership with Colorful that will see it make a comeback to the motherboard and graphics card businesses. The company quit both businesses in 2006. Company chairman Lu Li-Cheng commented that Chaintech has years of experience in the business, including R&D and marketing, has received OEM orders from Colorful, and is looking to bring back the Chaintech brand to the consumer market in 2013, with unveiling in 2012. Walton-Chaintech will market its products outside China, with the assistance of Colorful. Colorful has a solid market presence in mainland China, where its graphics cards account for 24-27% of the branded graphics card market.

    Now if only Hercules will return to the GPU market too.....

    their 3D Prophet cards were a total BEAST. It has to be better and much more exciting then selling Audio/Audiophile hardware. Its just sad when they build such a big repution of awesomeness then do a complete U-turn a decide to take the business else where.

    Hopefully their stuff is better than their ti4200 line :(

    Overclocked, undercooled, underrated memory, and bad fans.

    Great News IMO! I had one of their motherboards back in the day, it worked solidly for 8 years the AMD CPU croaked before the motherboard did!

    the difference between Hercules, Chaintech & Abit is that Abit no longer exist.

    Yup, I bought one of those cards new, boxed, for cheap a couple of years ago to add to my collection of graphics cards. Ended up using it in my friend's old AGP PC to help him out and within 6 months, the fan was making an awful racket and then two capacitors blew. Now the card doesn't work. Junk.
