In the incredibly fractured motherboard market, Gigabyte has done very well, with about a 10 percent market share. The company was founded in 1986, and has grown to a $1.44 billion (USD) company in that time.

Like virtually all of its competitors, Gigabyte has expanded from being just another board company to a system builder as well; the company builds desktop PCs and notebooks, and has even entered the mobile-phone business, building phones for companies like U.K. carrier O2. Its most recent business is in PC power supplies and cooling.
