GIGABYTE has shipped one million USB 3.0 mobos so far

Takes one third of the market by storm

| Connectivity & Communications News | Posted: Mar 23, 2010 11:04 am

Ever since USB 3.0 started to be spoken about in the industry, the folks over at GIGABYTE made it very clear to us in speech and in product that the new SuperSpeed connectivity standard was a very important focus for the Taiwanese motherboard maker.

Yesterday GIGABYTE announced to the world that it has so far shipped one million motherboards with USB 3.0 since they started shipping, which really was not all that long ago. It is a rather impressive milestone and shows just how serious GIGABYTE is about USB 3.0.

 

Further, GIGABYTE did some basic calculations based on a recent announcement by NEC that so far three million of its USB 3.0 controllers have been shipped and concluded that GIGABYTE have captured one third of the global USB 3.0 market share - and that's not just talking about motherboards, but also all products that feature USB 3.0 such as laptops, PCI Express cards and so on.

 

Jealous much, ASUS? I am sure we will see some sort of response soon.
