ALBATRON CORPORATE PROFILE
Since its founding in 1984, Albatron began by providing
large screen multimedia monitors, rear projection systems and multimedia
plasma displays by using the brand name "Monivision". Albatron is the
leading manufacturer in corporate presentations, education training, video
conferencing, and public information display and flight information industry
right now. ( find more about Monivision at http://www.chun.com.tw ) From
this year, Albatron will not only provide large screen display product
but also computer industry specific products. In March of 2002, Albatron
will release Intel and AMD processor based motherboard that adopt products
of world's famous chipset manufacturers. Meanwhile, we will launch high-end
graphic cards designed to create a dynamic display.
The name Albatron only a year ago would have drawn out the question "Who
is Albatron?" or "Albatron what?" Today, the word Albatron
used in conjunction with motherboard or videocard is known by most computer
hardware manufacturers, dealers, reviewers and consumers. How did they
get their name spread across the hardware community so fast? Well, the
old fashioned way. They produced high quality peripherals that performed
exceptionally well while being aggressively priced. If only the rest of
the hardware manufacturers in this specific genre would follow the same
flight line. Before they entered the market, "high performance"
came with the "high price" tag. I respect the fact that Albatron
turned the table, went against the market trend and made high performance
computing not quite as expensive.
To celebrate their one year anniversary, Albatron has released a limited
anniversary edition motherboard, the PX845PEV-800 which boasts some impressive
capabilities, let's see if it lives up to them.
