Asus was officially founded in 1989 in the city of Tapei, Taiwan. The founders pooled their skills and resources to create a motherboard prototype using an Intel 486 processor. This motherboard was the first hardware Asus created as a company, but it had no reputation and very few financial resources to continue.
In 1989, Asus launched the Cache383/33 and 486/25 motherboards. These motherboards proved to be a massive success for the company and were used in industry-leading products by IBM and ALR.
