Approximately a year ago numerous media sources reported that Chaintech had decided to quit mainboard business and concentrate on graphics cards and memory modules. Furthermore, some even said that the company had confirmed it was gearing up to launch memory module products and would gradually phase out its mainboard business. The company denied at the time it would quit the mainboard business.
