Officials for Intel Corp. and ASUSTeK Computer commented on the recent report about the possible end of outsourcing agreement between Intel and ASUS.

“We are not doing statements on our business relationships with OEM and ODM customers,” a spokesman for ASUSTeK said.

“Not sure how DigiTimes/Economic Daily News developed their list [of Intel’s mainboard partners]. [Concluding that ASUS no longer produces mainboards for Intel] would be an incorrect assumption,” an Intel representative told X-bit labs.

While Intel has tremendous plans in the mainboards market, the company does not have its own facilities to make this type of products. As a result, the Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker outsources production to Asian-based mainboard makers. ASUS has been producing mainboards for Intel for quite some time now, but the partnership might come to its end after Intel signed a deal with Wistron, it was reported on Tuesday based on reports from DigiTimes and Economic Daily News.

“Wistron will be Intel’s fourth motherboard contract maker, trailing Foxconn Electronics, Mitac International and First International Computer (FIC)”, a report over DigiTimes and Economic Daily News said.
