Skipping forward, Gigabyte has issued a formal response to the matter and it goes a little something like this:
GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards would like to respond to recent statements by our competitor alleging GIGABYTE has made false claims against them. These statements were made in response to a report GIGABYTE detailed for the media which compared GIGABYTE's 4-Gear and 6-Gear Dynamic Energy Saver technology to our competitor's non-phase change and 2-Gear Phase changing energy saving technology. In addition, direct comparisons and testing results were reported between the GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L motherboard and our competitor's P5K-SE EPU.
While GIGABYTE would like to express regret over any confusion this situation may have caused our competitor's customers, we do stand by our statements and testing report 100%, and eagerly await our competitor to clarify the issues we raised in order to avoid any further confusion.
We highly doubt that this war is close to finishing.
