Here is an excerpt from the article:
"Graphics cards maker Tul Corp. may face denunciation from customers and distributors as at least some graphics cards with the 'Power Color' brand-name made by the company use different graphics processors than they should. The company denied that the boards were made at Tul Corp.'s factories, which may mean that a third-party company made a number of fake graphics cards under with 'Power Color' brand-name on the boxes."
