Digitimes is reporting that the motherboard shipments for the "big four" have gone up for the month of August, a good sign for the industry as a whole.
First-tier motherboard makers Asustek Computer, Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), Gigabyte Technology, and Micro-Star International (MSI) shipped a combined 8.93 million motherboards in August, up 25.8-27.6% from the 7-7.1 million units they shipped during the same period last year.
As demand picked up in the traditional peak season, the combined shipments from the four makers grew 15.8% sequentially from 7.71 million units in July.
