More awards!! In collaboration with BMW Group Designworks USA, the ASRock Gaming PC M8 was honored with the distinguished 2015 Taiwan Excellence Award. Held annually, the Taiwan Excellence Award is presented to products that demonstrate the five key indicators: “R&D”, “Design”, “Quality”, “Marketing”, and “Made in Taiwan”. The five indicators are of equal importance, and each is judged on its “Innovation Value,” the most important standard of all.
The Taiwan Excellence Award selection and promotion is organized by the Bureau of Foreign Trade, MOEA and carried out by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council, TAITRA as part of an effort to improve the global image of Taiwan products. A total of 1145 products from 448 manufacturers were submitted for the 2015 Taiwan Excellence Award selection and only 489 products from 215 manufacturers accorded the honor of the 2015 Taiwan Excellence Awards.
M8 features an aluminum exterior, while hidden magnets hold the whole case together. Inside the box lies a Z97 mini-ITX motherboard for advanced portability and space efficiency. The functionality of this gaming PC lives up to its awesome appearance. The case may contain any standard mini-ITX for future upgrades, and M8 is sold as a barebone system so that gamers have the freedom of choosing their own components, such as swappable DDR3 DIMMs, any standard PCIe x16 graphics card, and also has 6 SATA3 ports lined up for storage.
“ASRock M8 is one of the best Mini-ITX systems we worked with BMW Group Designworks USA. The excellent design, outstanding features and full of expansion options gives gamers an easy-to-transport system to build their own high-end gaming PC. We are glad to receive this honor of 2015 Taiwan Excellence Award, and I believe the sustainable, personalized and well-designed products are irreplaceable and the demands of the market will be positively increased. ASRock will bring more interesting products in 2015 to the global market.” said James Lee, Vice President of ASRock Sales and Marketing.
The M8 also received several other awards including 2014 iF Product Design Award, COMPUTEX d&i Award 2014 and 2013 Chicago GOOD DESIGN™ Award.
