A couple of weeks ago, OC3D reported on industry whispers
that had been heard regarding Foxconn. The short story is that Foxconn are rumoured to be moving out of the end user, branded motherboard market. Although the original story was met with disbelief by some, it seems that these whispers are being heard elsewhere too. Digitimes have published an article
with the same story to tell as our original article. Foxconn are said to have told their sales team to stop taking orders on some motherboard models and to stop gathering order volume forecasts on them too. This is indicative of a company who is clearing out stock.
