Asustek Computer shipped a total of 23.94 million motherboards in the first five months of 2007, accounting for 38% of total shipments of 63 million units projected for the year, company chairman Jonney Shih said at a shareholders meeting held on June 13.
Shipments of graphics cards are growing steadily and should increase substantially over the 10.78 million units shipped in 2006, Shih added.
Profitability of initial shipments of low-cost PCs, including Eee PCs, Intel's Classmate PCs and other ultra-mobile PCs (UMPCs) is relatively lower but will be improved when the production of these products reaches an economic scale, Shih stated, noting that Asustek still aims to ship over seven million notebooks during the year, up from 5.5 million units in 2006.
Asus already shipped 24 million motherboard this year
