Ideal signs up Soyo

Move marks a return to motherboard business

Ideal Hardware is making a fresh foray into the motherboard business. At the Computer Trade Show in Birmingham today, we learnt that it will recruit Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer Soyo as one of its vendors this Friday. The distributor formerly sold Elite motherboards but the Soyo deal means it will be able to supply more components in a single box, the source said. Soyo is one of the medium sized Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers and produces products which allow a variety of x.86 parts from vendors including Intel and AMD to run. ®
