ASUSTeK Preps Graphics Cards Shipments Breakthrough in 2005
ASUSTeK Computer reportedly said Tuesday it targeted to ship 10 – 12 million graphics cards the following year, up about 32% - 62% from calendar 2004. The move may put ASUS on the first spot among makers of graphics cards and means increasing competition between manufacturers. The decision may also outline standalone graphics cards market growth.
ASUSTeK’s Computer’s goal of shipping 10 – 12 million graphics cards in 2005, up from the 7.4 – 7.5 million units estimated for this year, will mean more competition for OEM and clone orders among Taiwan graphics-card makers in the coming year, DigiTimes reports.
