GeCube, one of well-known suppliers of graphics boards, has reportedly sold its graphics cards business and will concentrate on other products. Separately, Gigabyte Technology, another leading maker of mainboards and graphics cards, sold its stake in the supplier.

Gigabyte Technology owned 61.5% stake in GeCube, but for some reason decided to sell it to an undisclosed owner, reports DigiTimes web-site citing Apple Daily news-paper. The new owner reportedly does not want to focus on making graphics boards and wants to concentrate on multimedia and mobile products the company has been developing for several years now.

Neither Gigabyte nor GeCube have so far commented on the information and it the details regarding the alleged deal are not clear at the moment. At press time, even Taiwan Stock Exchange did not contain any mentions of the deal.

It is interesting to note that GeCube has always concentrated on rather advanced and/or non-standard graphics cards, but has so far been a very loyal partner of ATI, graphics business unit of AMD. In fact, the company launched both latest offering from the chip supplier: Radeon HD 4770 and Radeon HD 4890.
