Abit Closes Down Entirely
“That’s it for good now”
Last August we brought you exclusive confirmation that abit was exiting the mainboard market. The plan at the time was to move into the consumer electronics market with products like digital picture frames and mobile internet devices.
Well it looks like the global recession has put paid to those plans. Sources at South East Asian distributors have told us that parent company USI has run out of patience and decided to pull out of the channel market entirely.
The whole of abit is now in the process of liquidation, we are told, and the process is expected to be completed in around a month.
Wow, I guess that makes my KN9 a collector's item.
Liquidation huh... So it would be a half decent time to stock up on abit components for a half decent price..
