ED#87 : Fake DFI Motherboards

DFI recently discovered the presence of fake DFI motherboards in the Indonesian market. It is not yet known if the problem is limited to Indonesia. However, there is a real possibility of fake DFI motherboards being sold elsewhere. Currently, DFI has identified these two fake DFI motherboard models :




The detail to the packaging, documentation and the motherboard printing really makes you wonder if the people responsible for this have only limited their activities to DFI motherboards. It's quite possible that there are fake ASUS or Gigabyte motherboards in the market as well.

Currently, only these DFI motherboards are available in Indonesia. All other "DFI" motherboards sold in Indonesia are either parallel-imported or fake models.

Update : The Manufacturer Identified!

Looks like the counterfeit motherboards came from a Chinese company called J&W Technology. According to their company profile, J&W Technology has become "the biggest private motherboard manufacturer in mainland China and sold more than 450,000 pieces worldwide monthly." In addition, J&W Technology claims they are one of the world's leading manufacturers of NVIDIA nForce motherboards.

The two counterfeit DFI models "DFI MCP73V" and "DFI MCP68V" appeared to be rebadged versions of J&W Technology's JWT-IN7100-HD and JWT-N68PV motherboards. We have more details in the next page....
