Gigabyte: Asus is copying us
According to Gigabyte, Asus has borrowed one of Gigabyte's ideas for their P45 motherboard P5Q Premium - a humorous chart reveals: "This is Gigabyte's idea first!!!! (Asus copy us on P5Q Premium).
While visiting Gigabyte in Taiwan we weren't just given a tour through the factory, we were also allowed to test Gigabyte's soon to be released motherboards with a P45 chipset (further information will be released soon). Meanwhile a Gigabyte employee put a chart of a future motherboard on a blackboard. It seems that a similar setup is used with Asus's P5Q Premium as well, but Gigabyte is convinced: "This is Gigabyte's idea first!”
This surely is just a friendly and humorous side blow, since motherboard producers adopt their competitor's ideas all the time.
