Taiwan-based graphics card companies including Gigabyte Technology and Micro-Star International (MSI) have seen demand pick up substantially, said the sources. Both firms already saw increased graphics card sales boost their July revenues.
Magic Technology, which provides inductors to Gigabyte, has disclosed that its order visibility is clear through the end of September thanks to strong demand for graphics cards and gaming devices. A pick-up in demand for notebooks and rising graphics card demand for cryptocurrency mining already buoyed the inductor maker's July revenues.
