Overclock3D heard whispers that Foxconn might scale back their operations and close their end user manufacturing division. Foxconn is one of the biggest manufacturers of electronics and computer components worldwide. They make products for firms such as Apple, Intel, Dell, HP, Sony, Microsoft and Motorola but they also have a small division that makes consumer products such as motherboards.
Foxconn was founded in 1974, and their end user Foxconn branded motherboard manufacture is only a small part of their business operations. They produce some well known products, such as the iPod and iPhone for Apple, the PS2 and PS3 for Sony as well as producing Intel CPU's. We do not know the reasons why Foxconn would consider ceasing production of their motherboards, and if the rumours prove to be true it will be a sad day for enthusiasts.
