Considering they make like everything that goes on all the other manufactures mobos I can't see this being a big blow to the company.

Sounds like maybe they've had their fun, shown a few people what they can do but have ultimately realised its more hassle than its worth.

A bit of a shame really, they do such fantastic work in producing the high end motherboards. Ooh well.. As has been said, they've had their fun

It's the new foxconn socket 1366 motherboard for core i7... Which is the 'living' proof that foxconn will probably not stop producing for the coming time, even if it's just to get the research costs back.

Looks sweet but as said previous I doubt its any hardship IF they did stop producing mobo's cosidering they are the perhaps the biggest 'unknown' manufacturer anyway.
