CORPORATE PROFILE (From Chaintech)
Welcome to Chaintech, the fastest growing motherboard, graphic card,
and IA manufacturer in the world! While global tech sales have steadily
decreased over the past year, Chaintech has had an astonishing growth
of 23% in second half over first half of 2002. What makes Chaintech so
distinguished? In the past 17 years, Chaintech has devoted to develop
the most innovative and customer-oriented products based on our most professional
and experienced R&D team. Pioneered by our R&D team, everyone in Chaintech
faces the dynamic and exhilarating IT market with alertness and global
view. We work based on the principle of keeping everything the most up-to-date.
Year 2002, Chaintech has won the battle in the retail market by introducing
APOGEE and ZENITH series motherboards which highly impressed worldwide
media and end users. Continued with the splendid start of 2002, Chaintech
will bring you more surprises and uniqueness in 2003 and carry out the
idealism of "affordable technology!"
Since the introduction of the canterwood chipset onto the
market, every motherboard manufacturer has be fighting tooth and nail
to get their canterwood motherboard recognized as the best in its class.
How do companies do this in today's market? With extras, lots and lots
of extras. Whether is being rounded cables, front ports, screwdrivers,
software bundles and pretty well anything a computer enthusiast desires,
the marketing focus today is shifting more and more to the accessories
rather than the actual motherboard.
How does Chaintech's canterwood package fit in to all of
this. I'll make it simple. You take all the accessories mentioned above,
add in even more toys like a remote control, an extra soundcard and fit
it into a product box. Now the trick is to find a place to fit the motherboard,
and how do you do that? You get a bigger box.
Today I will be reviewing "the" most complete
motherboard bundle available on the market. But does it perform? Is all
the extras a coverup for an inferior product? Through a couple pages of
reading, you will definitely find out.
And now, the....rest..of the story...
