HEXUS.channel can exclusively confirm that Taiwanese technology company abit, which is associated primarily with high-end and gaming mainboards, will stop producing all mainboards at the end of 2008.

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.

Apparently abit will continue to deliver mainboards until the end of the year and will honour RMAs and warranties for three years subsequently

Meh, Abit hasn't made a decent, enthusiast MOBO since 2005 or something.

20 bucks they go under. With them not making motherboards. There goes half of there product line. There graphics card line doesn't look that good either - http://www.uabit.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=29&Itemid=43

My very first build was with an Abit motherboard.  It was a slot A type.  If I recall, I overclocked it from 800 to 1.0 and it ran like champ.  In fact, I think I still have that motherboard & "chip" in a box somewhere.  I used the case for another build.
