Sad news. He looked like a very nice person plus the company has clearly improved since he took over, especially in the Motherboards division.

So young... May you rest in peace Chiang.

I'm not a fan of MSI, but I don't wish death on anyone and this is certainly a tragic way to go. My thoughts are with his family. May he RIP.

This is devastating to the gaming community. His person was the first CEO to take gpu cooling into the spotlight for aftermarket heatsinks to enter mainstream market. This whole high performance out of the box guarantee of satisfaction was his idea. Before his foray into gpu gaming market, each oem had its stray pocket of spare parts that didn't have the same elegance. Thank him for making an Arctic silencer for every gpu. Yes, it was a thing back then.

Sucks. Wasn't he on stage with Dr. Lisa Su during the big Ryzen 3000 launch?
