RUMOUR: ASUS to Acquire AsRock Mobos

Rumours surfaced that ASUS would be acquiring AsRock's motherboard division, strengthening the world's largest manufacturer (while removing the #3 player). So, that leaves us with fewer companies in a ever volatile market. This, combined with the reduced manufacturers due to Intel expecting to integrate the VRM onto the CPU, will reduce the amount of competition in this market. Currently, Pegatron corporation, a spinoff of ASUS owns AsRock and has apparently given a green light to ASUS. Both companies make great products and we hope they continue to improve!
