ASUS the First to Fully Automate GPU Production

 

ASUS have became the first company to fully automate the production of GPUs, producing the cleanest PCBs we have ever seen and increasing the reliability of their products. 

Automation of manufacturing is beneficial for many reasons, firstly it can eliminates human error, allows work to be done faster and takes accuracy of competent placement into a level of precision which is much greater than is possible by human hands. This allows manufacturing costs to decrease dramatically and less faulty products are produced and they can be produced at a faster rate. 

  

ASUS the First to Fully Automate GPU Production  

ASUS' has made a manufacturing procedure which will allow a GPU to be created automatically, allowing all components to be placed, soldered with higher accuracy than ever before, producing PCBs which are cleaner than we have ever seen before.

While most components of the GPU were already placed and fixed by machines, ASUS's elimination of human error will allow them to make PCB's more dense and better optimize component layout due to higher precision manufacturing. Without humans involved in the manufacture of GPUs, the workplace will have a lot less dust, which is a great thing when making such complex electronics. 

 

 

The only downside of ASUS' fully automated process is the loss of jobs, as it was somebody's job to solder MOSFETs and other components to the PCB. While more jobs skilled/ higher paid jobs will be gained as technicians for the automated machinery it will still leave many people out of work, which is a sad thing to see.

Hopefully ASUS have room for these people in other manufacturing jobs, as their motherboard and system making production is not fully automated.   

One thing to remember here guys is that ASUS only produce the GPU's PCB and cooler, the GPU itself is still created by Nvidia or AMD as ASUS do not design and manufacture these parts themselves.

ASUS will definitely be saving money with their fully automated GPU production, and us consumers will be gaining the benefits of more precision-made hardware, which is less likely to contain faults and will likely have a longer lifespan.

We will likely not be seeing any decreases in pricing soon, as setting up this system would be a very expensive process, though it does mean that right now we should get much better quality products for the same prices we are used too.

Hmmm there goes the quality control anyway over to Dice hehheehehehehheQuote

I think this will actually decrease failure rates in products as it removes human error from causing any harm to the components. The video ASUS made on this was pretty terrible though Quote

I thought it was pretty nice actually, specially liked the background music

A Youtube comment though

And now... simply pause at 0:54 and think of HOW MANY of this people will lost their job.

Great as this means we should have very low failure rates and hopefully lower prices as they can drop QA for a simple "we make them so good we know less than 1 in N will fail."Quote

Im expecting stupidly clean/neat and nicely arranged circuitry and pcb!Quote
