Rumor: ASUS and Gigabyte plan to increase the warranty period of their motherboards

Rumor: ASUS and Gigabyte plan to increase the warranty period of their motherboards

and hold for several years the position of the largest manufacturers in the industry, places that one intends to keep (ASUS), while the other seeks to climb into first place (Gigabyte). According to new rumors that reach us from Xtreview, apparently both planning to increase the warranty period of their motherboards.

We do not know for sure if the is correct, the possibility that one of the two largest manufacturers consider increasing the warranty period of your motherboard is not unreasonable, as other manufacturers like Biostar already offer the warranty period for some of its high-end motherboards , and presumably ASUS and Gigabyte will not be too happy about it.

According to the ASUS and Gigabyte both rumor will increase the warranty period for some of their motherboards (we assume that the high-end models) to four years, and under these four years will not be covered only potential defects caused by a manufacturing defect, but also the potential damage caused by the user (the latter is unlikely).

It is estimated that the motherboard that enjoy this longer period of warranty will be priced higher than other models, since both will have to increase the production volume of these models in order to make a large stock of reserves in order to cover liabilities .
