Birth of the Pegasus
ASUS is soaring to new heights in every product they release. Its name is inspired by a famous Greek Mythology character called “Pegasus”, a winged horse. Many people view the animal as a symbol of wisdom and knowledge known to help heroes achieve victories. An accurate representation of a company that helps people achieve success through their technologies.
The Pegasus of technology came into existence in 1989. It started with four engineers who had a conversation in a coffee shop about starting a small company in Taiwan. In just a few months, they made it happen.
These engineers build their motherboards for personal computers. A motherboard is the nervous system of the human body. It is what connects and sends signals to every other part of the body. Without it, computers will not be able to function.
To test the quality of their motherboard, ASUS approaches Intel and asks for a processor. Coincidentally, Intel has a problem with its own motherboard. And upon testing, ASUS’ own worked that solves Intel’s problem. From there, the Pegasus starts to make its name.
