TBREAK had an interview with David Chien, the Director of BU5 at ECS. You can read it over here.
During Computex, I had a chance to sit down with Mr. David Chien, the Director of BU5 at ECS for a few minutes. In a candid interview, he described ECS’ position as much better than most of his competitors (ASUS, MSI etc.) at the moment. He backed his claim by asking us to look at the excessive inventory these companies currently have at hand. ECS, he said, had predicted the dip in sales and thus started cutting manufacturing from Q2 of last year.
When we asked about the new products from ECS, he said that they will be focusing more on their Black series, which is their higher-end solution. It started with motherboards for AMD and Intel CPUs but has now progressed to VGA cards as well. As we saw at Computex, ECS indeed had quite a few “Black” series graphics cards which they stated would be overclocked about 15% out of the box.
