From 2007, FOXCONN has begun to introduce middle and high end MB products,
hoping to establish its own-brand products and create the complete MB product line ranging from high to low end.
During the period, FOXCONN has unveiled P35/P45/P55/X58 MB products, etc.
However, as the choice is limited and some factors related with low visibility market, it makes us feel a period of silence since the beginning of P55 products.
Early June, we have seen FOXCONN P67, Z68 and X79 in Computex,
showing that from the impression of previous Quantum Force, each MB has a unique naming.
This time, Intel P67 chipset is called Rattler, targeting the main route of racing judged from packing design.
FOXCONN Rattler Appearance
Quantum Force has been used to creating visual sensation by matching the color with black and red
Nowadays, in MB market, several other brand high-end products also used such color scheme.
Rattler is supposed to target middle-end P67 with decent specs and materials.
