Intel royally fucks over one of its best customers.
We don't ordinarily get into hardware here, but what's important about this is that this has a damned good chance of putting ASUS out of business. (And just two weeks after I put an ASUS mobo into my computer, sob. Fortunately, mine
is not one of the ones involved.)
If Intel has any honor (or wants to maintain any kind of reputation) they're going to completely cover ASUS's losses on this, which could easily top a billion dollars. I wonder if they will.
Anyone want to lay odds on when the first lawsuit gets filed? (Or who will sue whom?)
