ECS not going to to shut down its DIY motherboard business

Many news reportings and rumours were posted by multiple news sources, including about Samsung or Qualcomm to buy out AMD. Many times other manufacturers faced the same situation. Some defended and denied the rumours, some of them turned out to be true. As a source for PC hardware, news, reviews and recommendations, I try not to post news that doesn’t really make sense or no matter how good it sounds or how obvious it would seem, could most likely be a rumour. Sometimes, I get it right. Sometimes, I don’t.

This involves ECS defending against a news reporting from one of Taiwan-based news report Digitimes. The original story was posted exactly a month where the journalist said that it is shutting down retail DIY motherboard manufacturing business, but will keep OEM/ODM product alive to shift its attention towards notebooks, tablets and mini PCs. It also emphasized that ASROCK, MSI and Biostar are facing the same issue.

Today, ECS sent a Clarification letter:


ECS did show off few of its Intel Z170 chipset motherboard variant during Computex 2015, along with Liva mini PCs. One of the displayed motherboards is the Z170IU-C43 mini motherboard with HDMI 2.0 that allows 4k up to 60Hz, USB 3.1 and an all new Realtek Dragon LAN.

  1. There were other signs that things were not going well at Closed Loop. The company stopped paying rent for its Ohio facility in June 2014, and it repeatedly told the Ohio EPA auditors that the few CRT-processing machines it did have were broken. In March 2015, rumors swirled that the company was going to have difficulty making payroll. Government and independent auditors eventually learned that the company had rented additional storage facilities that it wasn’t forthcoming with inspectors about. An employee at the Ohio EPA speculated in internal inspection documents that the company might have been shipping glass back-and-forth between the warehouses to avoid a regulation that prevents recyclers from holding CRT glass for more than one year. The documents were acquired using the Ohio Freedom of Information Act and were shared with Motherboard.
