Taipei, Taiwan, August 13, 2012 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced the winners of the GIGABYTE Hidden Gems Competition. In celebration of our illustrious history, with 26 years at the heart of the DIY PC industry, GIGABYTE invited all their Facebook fans to share videos and photos of their old GIGABYTE-based DIY PC builds. The older the better!
“The Hidden Gems competition proved to be an excellent showcase for GIGABYTE’s Ultra Durable philosophy, with 74% of submissions featuring boards that are older than 5 years, almost 25% of submissions with boards of more than 10 years old and 8% from the 1990’s,” commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE. “Remarkably, the oldest motherboard submitted originates from 1991, and still runs after more than twenty years!”
