MSI Banking on Server Business to Drive Up Profits

Paul Lilly

Most Maximum PC readers probably associate MSI with motherboards first and netbooks second, but it's the company's server and industrial PC (IPC) businesses the company's banking on to push profits up to a 50 percent on-year growth.

According to MSI's company chairman Joseph Hsu, MSI still managed to make a profit in 2009, despite a significant drop in its server business. With the tech sector looking up in 2010, Hsu expects a big turnaround in 2010.

And it's not just mobos and graphics cards for the IPC industry, either. MSI, some would be surprised to learn, also dabbles in developing medical devices and point of sale (POS) systems, both of which Hsu expects to play a big part in the company's 2010 revenue.
