ABIT Website To Go Completely Shut By End of February

Back in March, 2009, the industry lost ABIT as a consumer motherboard vendor, as it announced its exit. ABIT had been a reputable vendor of high-end PC motherboards. The company stayed on as a shell to complete honoring warranties, with its website on a little longer, to help with drivers, BIOS, and product manual downloads, among other things. It appears now that the clock for the website has also run out. A notice on the start page of the website says that the website will go offline on the 28th February, 2012. If you have an ABIT product, it would be a good idea to download PDF files of its manuals, a copy of its BIOS (if applicable), and drives, before the website goes down for good.

abit Closes Down Forever

According to the latest news on the web, the well known motherboard manufacturer abit, once a leading provider of high-performance motherboards and video cards, will close doors forever in the month to come. Now we all know that the company halted the production of its motherboards, but it was never meant to close doors forever. Instead, abit was to move into the consumer electronics market with products like digital picture frames and mobile internet devices. Yes, but no one thought of the world economic crisis. HEXUS.net reports that abit's parent company USI has now decided to pull abit out of the channel market entirely. abit's marketing director Thore Welling commented:
After 20 years in the market the abit brand now bids farewell, so it's also time for me now to lock the doors of the marketing department. That's it for good now.
If this information confirms, the whole liquidation of abit should be finished in around a month.Source: HEXUS.net

Shutters Down for Abit on December 31

Abit, one of the most popular brand names with motherboards, will be formally closing shop on December 31. A popular brand among computer enthusiasts, Abit has a history of churning out some of the best high-end motherboards. Bad corporate governance, along with poor decision-making at the management level, set Abit on a path towards its slow and painful end. Revived by the United Scientific Industrial (USI) in 2006, the company showed some resurgence, it also planned to diversify into peripherals such as digital photo frames, speakers, etc., alongside its desktop motherboards lineup, but evidently it didn't help the company. Post Dec. 31, the company will continue to honour its warranty and RMA commitments for up to three years according to an earlier report. Farewell Abit!Source: TweakTown

Abit to Exit Motherboard Market

It is confirmed that abit, maker of high-end and gaming motherboards will exit the business of motherboards. The production is to stop by the end of this year. HEXUS.channel has confirmed this as fact from sources close to South East Asian distributors, all of which will be notified by their abit sales contacts from today onwards.

The company will continue to sell motherboards till the end of the year and will honour RMA and warranties for three years subsequently. This first made news as rumours back in May, and back then abit responded that they had no intentions of leaving the market, apparently because they weren't intended to move out back then.Source: Hexus.channel

Universal abit Denies Claims That it is Leaving the Motherboard Business

Universal abit representatives today said that the company is not going to leave the motherboard arena and DigiTimes rumors are not to be believed. Thore Welling, Universal ABIT Global Marketing Director pointed out:
abit is a well established and strong brand within the enthusiast and high-end motherboard and components industry. In fact, particularly over the past 12 months we have been able to considerably increase market share not only in traditional markets such as Western Europe, but even stronger so in emerging markets such as East Asia as well as in the Middle East. Therefore, the broadening of our product lines into the Consumer Electronics (digital photo frames with integrated photo printer [FunFab] and MIDs) segment represents a stronger commitment to the overall brand and the continuation of our motherboard concept into other products. abit stays committed to motherboards and has a broad lineup of motherboards ready, as you will see in during Computex.

Universal abit Reportedly to Leave the Motherboard Market?

DigiTimes is reporting that Universal abit may abandon the motherboard business after evaluating the success of its upcoming Intel 4 series lineup of motherboards.
Abit's has failed to meet the expectations of parent company Universal Scientific Industrial (USI) in its ability to compete with fellow second-teir makers in terms of performance, or first-tier makers in terms of pricing in the mid-range and entry-level market, and so the company is evaluating whether to quit the market and start developing other products for the Abit brand, noted the sources.

In 2007, Abit shipped 2-3 million motherboards and had set a goal to ship six million units in 2008. However, the company's current shipments have actually decreased. Abit will determine whether to stay in the market after evaluating its shipments performance of P45-based motherboards, added the sources.
