Next year motherboard maker Gigabyte will start rolling out new desktop PCs.

The firm has already been selling PCs in Taiwan for two years and managed to grab a 14% marketshare but it plans to expand into China, Japan and Europe. The firm hopes to ship 100,000 own-brand PCs in 2008.
To date, Gigabyte has focused its desktop PCs in the high-end markets, while the desktop ODM segment contributed around NT$9 billion (US$278 million) in revenues in both 2006 and 2007. The company expects that with Fujitsu, NEC and Hewlett-Packard (HP) continuing to place their orders, desktop PC segment revenues should be able to reach NT$10 billion in 2008.

In addition to Intel platform systems, Gigabyte recently also launched desktop PCs with AMD CPUs combined with Nvidia motherboards to attract more gamers in the high-end market, according to the company.
