Having received the fruits of its labours by making inroads into the enthusiast motherboard market, rumours are circulating that Foxconn maybe withdrawing from the 'branded' motherboard circuit.

 

Enthusiast motherboard market to lose player?

 

Citing its sources, this report from DIGITIMES claims that Foxconn has instructed its sales department to cease accepting orders for certain models, whilst refraining from gathering order volume forecasts for all new SKUs. It is further suggested that the company is, effectively, clearing out its inventory and is keeping its moves as low profile as possible.

 

This report from HARDSPELL, however, states that Foxconn's Channel Manager has refuted the rumours, stating that the company has no intention to quit the 'branded' motherboard market at all.

 

We'll keep you updates as further updates become available.
