Bright Side of News claims famed overclocker Shamino is no longer working for EVGA and that there are indications that he has joined another Taiwanese motherboard maker:
Shamino was originally operating out of Taiwan and there are indications that he may move to another Taiwanese motherboard maker as he has done in the past. Previously, Shamino was working for Foxconn [surely not because of horrible working conditions?] and eventually helped them develop a high-end line of boards until he left the company for EVGA in 2008. So, he does have a history of moving around and he likely may have done it on his own without any provocation.
Although we don’t necessarily know the details regarding the departure of Shamino, we can tell you that he is an extremely creative guy that knows what features overclockers are looking for. In addition to that, his design recommendations and community support are what allowed EVGA’s high-end offerings[classified] to compete with the big boys like ASUS and Gigabyte who have been waging the overclocking wars against each other for the past few years.
