An item has appeared on Xbit Labs stating that ABIT will stop existing on the 31st of December of this year. When Hardware Info checked this news at the source it became clear that this is absolutely not the case, and the news item is loosely based on gossip and false presumptions
Fernando Cobreros Benito -ABIT sales manager for the Benelux and Spain- told HWI that ABIT will stop the production of motherboards, but this does not entail that the company will close its doors completely. "ABIT will definitely continue to manufactor products, these will not be motherboards and we have not got a 100% clear picture yet on what products will be made", stated Benito, and also added: "Products now made by USI that are not sold to OEM's will get the ABIT branding. Think about items like external hard drives to Car PC's. USI is already manufactering a wide range of products for all the big companies on the market."
