Bigger shipment doesn't always mean the company is gonna do good though. I mean quality over quantity is always PC builder's friend.

Gigabyte boards have x2 PCB copper and cause eyestrain.

If all you tout are your shipment values, then it means you're not confident in your outlook and are finding a convenient number to tell me you're doing "well".

AsRock, with it's ultra superior quality products will indeed come out on top & send ASUS & Gigabyte back to Motherboard making school. *cough*

You do know that AsRock is owned by ASUS, right?

Its their Cheapo division

ASRock is owned by Pegatron, and the only passing relationship to ASUS between the two is that ASRock spun off of ASUS and Pegatron purchased an ASUS subsidiary.

Apparently im stuck in 2007, i had no idea they did an ipo.

lol

prior to that, they were a holey own subsidiary of Asus.

In my defense however, i missed most of 2007 due to an unhealthy focus on saving a dying long term relationship. Im sure this isnt the only tech news that i missed.

lol

Also, pegatron is also an Asus spin off which asus owned a controlling interest for several years so its complicated.

for you trivia nuts:

The PEGA from Pegatron plus the Asus from Asustek = Pegasus, the original name of the Asustek company before they changed their name so it was higher in the alphabet.

Don't feel bad. I must also have been stuck in 2007 as I didn't realize that they had been spun off and purchased by Pegatron. My last build was about late 2008/early 2009 and I'm just now in the process of a new build and have been getting re-familiarized with the latest hardware. I keep reading good things about AsRock but in the end I still look at Asus or Gigabyte motherboards (on my latest build I'm leaning towards Asus based on features at the price-point I'm comfortable with).
