Awesome news!!!!!! Glad to see Chaintech be back in competition with the big guys!! Back in the Socket A days Chaintech made some awesome motherboards.

Hope they can make a comeback and compete with Gigabyte, Asus, Asrock, etc...

Welcome back Chaintech!!! :=)

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!

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.
