Intel’s Desktop Motherboard Software
We are often asked why we use the motherboards we do, and Intel Motherboards are a classic example. We may not sell hundreds of thousands of computers each month, but what we do sell is comprised of top quality components from manufacturers who stand behind their products.
Intel exemplifies the type of quality we strive for each and every day. Their motherboards are made from the best components available, beginning with the printed circuit board. In the late 1980’s and the first half of the 1990’s, there weren’t that many people that envisioned where the computer industry would be today. Back then, 4MB of memory and a 100MB hard drive were huge successes and computers evolved a year at a time. Now, computer technology evolves daily. Of course, in some instances, this fast evolving technology brings with it its own problems, including a decline in overall quality, but Intel has maintained it course by providing a quality motherboard product.
Intel is entirely committed to the quality of their boxed motherboards, which is clearly evident by their 3 year warranty included with each one. The dedication doesn’t stop their though, as they are clearly committed to insuring that you have the software and drivers you need to obtain optimum performance from your motherboard. We are often asked about the software provided with each motherboard we sell. Although Intel makes it easy to review the software they include on their CD, we decided to provide a preview for those of you who have not yet purchased an Intel motherboard.
