abit was a famous motherboard brand in the past. After changing hands and renamed as Universal abit, it didn’t pickup the reins. The company no longer manufacture motherboards and changed to multimedia products. It didn’t do very well and shut its operations thereafter.

Although the products were no longer on sale, the site at abit.com.tw was still available for end users to download bios, manuals etc.

On Feb 28 2012, this will all come to an end as the web administrator has posted a message on it’s site indicating that the site will be shut down forever.

It is really unfortunate to see the demise of the site. Anyway, the R&D people are still around, working hard and making better boards for other brands. Who knows you might bump into them in our forums 🙂
