Digitimes has a report on the January shipments and revenues for motherboard makers. It’s a mixed bag with 3 brands doing better than the previous month and 3 doing worse. Happily, Gigabyte has the highest month on month growth out of all of the hardware vendors listed with shipments of 1.65-1.85 million – this is significant because it shows that we are on track to achieve our target of 20 million boards in 2010.
|Jan Revenue||Month on Month||Year on Year||Shipments|
|NT$5.5 billion||55% up||41.06% up||1.65-1.85 million|
The full table with comparisons to other brands is available from Digitimes. What stands out, in my subjective view, is that Gigabyte is driving new technologies such as USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0 (6Gb/s) down through our product range, i.e. not only reserving these specs for the high-end boards. Is it pure coincidence then that our January sales are higher than others who might be a little more conservative with implementing next gen technologies during the Windows 7 upgrade cycle?
