“ CONSOLIDATION may be on the way for a number of the Taiwanese second and third tier players.
Earlier today we reported that Palit is likely to snap up graphics firm Gainward, and now we’ve heard a fresh rumour out of Old Taipei.
That is that Albatron is interested in acquiring the business of Chaintech – the reason being that the latter has a VGA factory that the former covets.
Right now, it’s just a rumour and neither company could be contacted for each to formally deny or to confirm the speculation.
Because Albatron may covet the VGA production facilities all it wants, but if Chaintech doesn’t want it to happen, we guess it just plain won’t”
