    DFI gurus, so what happen?

    So what happen with DFI? I remember hearing first they went out of buisness. Then I hear somewhere that DFI is still manufacturing boards but under Sapphire brand.

    Has Sapphire bought out DFI or something?

    No, they only carry 2 AMD mobos,1 micro atx and 1 atx. Both 780 series industrial.All under DFI brand.
    What pisses me off is you cant even access any old bios from their new revamped website.Its like all my mobos never existed.
    Im just going back to Asrock.

    Re: DFI gurus, so what happen?

    I was looking into info on this new sapphire mobo I bought since my old DFI 790FX was destroyed.

    I dont remember where I read it but I heard that this sapphire board and all other amd chipset sapphires are indeed being made by DFI just rebranded as sapphires now

    Interesting if that's true.
    Still miss my NF4 Ultra-D and all the tweaking I was able to do with it. I'd like to mount it on the wall, but the missus isn't quite on board with that idea.

    I too miss abit, and EpoX. I am still running 2 Abit boards and 1 EpoX board. All Socket a systems.

    Re: DFI gurus, so what happen?

    Epox was definitely my "go to" mobo maker for the first few years I built computers. They were totally unbeatable price/features wise. From their it was Abit until they left, and from there it's now Biostar. Although I can tell Biostar is on their way out now as well. Their lineup right now for the Z68 chipset is not nearly as complete as it should be.
