It's not part of the process, but we should take a minute here to mention the
huge automated warehouse that Gigabyte uses to store its various supplies and
finished products on site. This vertical storage area is eight stories
tall. Eight stories of computer tracked automated pallets that can be
raised or lowered to a number of different off loading points, one for each
floor. It's hard to convey the Blade Runner-like effect of this much
automated machinery in one place, but these pictures give you a small idea of
what it's like.

The pallets are loaded by workers into docking stations
before automated load handling towers come over to pick up the pallet and 'file
it away in this 8-story warehouse. The process is 100% automated, and pallet are
tracked using the numbers visible on the LED display above.
