“It is a well know fact that our industrial motherboards
give us a more dependable year round business but there are no plans to stop
production on our LanParty and Infinity line products. At the moment we still have LanParty and Infinity boards
planned until Q4 2007 and R&D is constantly thinking of new boards to add
to the planning.Ӭ said Zach Schreiber, a spokesman for DFI. DFI states
that the information is incorrect and reforms in its mainboard business will
only affect entry-level solutions, which will be scrapped eventually.
The mainstream and high-end motherboards families, such as Infinity and LanParty,
will continue to be made. In fact, the company expects to increase research
and development resources for the aforementioned lineups.

DFI became well known among enthusiasts several year ago with
the release of the LanParty mainboard series, which has become very popular
among overclockers since then. However, the primary business of DFI are mainboards
for industrial computing, a more predictable market with stable sales that does
not require massive investments into research and development. Taiwan-based
DFI said it was the world’s No. 7 largest mainboard manufacturer back in 2001
and has branches in the U.S., Japan, Europe and China. The company said that
its production and market share has increased since 2001.
