Dell should be on the lookout for a 'thank you' card from Gigabyte, which saw strong on-month and on-year revenue growth rates to the tune of 55.1 percent and 41.1 percent, respectively, in January 2010 mostly because of server and storage system orders placed by Dell.
The mostly short-term orders won't do much to bolster Gigabyte's long term outlook, but according to some analysts, it will help Gigabyte see better revenues performance than nearly all of its motherboard competitors.
The server and storage orders came at a good time. Gigabyte has struggled a bit in the notebook sector, shipping only about 300,000 units in 2009 and failing to meet the company's expectations. Meanwhile, Gigabyte's handset subsidiary is seeing losses, though the vendor expects both of these segments to see significant improvement in 2010.
