The motherboards market is shrinking, but Asus and Gigabit are increasing their lead

Depending on the complexity of the complex computer systems market, it seems that the hardware components market is not really shining in 2015

Last month we saw that despite cautious optimism, the personal computer market (stationary and laptops sold in advance) continues to shrink, which is not really encouraging. Now, up-to-date data from the digitimes website makes it clear that the hardware components market for those who want to assemble their computers alone - the situation is not much better.

Asos and Gigabyte, the two Taiwanese manufacturers battling for lead in the motherboard market for nearly a decade, have brought in stores about 8 one million motherboards each during the first half of 2015 - a figure that is significantly lower than they hoped to make it difficult to meet With the stated goal of bringing over 20 one million motherboards to stores in the entire 2015.

Lasos and Gigabate are hard on the motherboards market - but at least the gap between them and the latter becomes ever greater
Lassos and gigabytes are tough on the motherboard market - but at least the gap between them and the last one is growing ever greater

As it seems right now, the two companies will have trouble crossing over the 18 million motherboards (each) in 2015 - a figure that in itself will be a significant slump, especially for , Which in recent years has supplied more than 1 million units to 20 stores on a regular basis, including in 2014, where 22 has supplied about 1 million boards worldwide.

The new boards of , Eagerly awaiting the arrival of Skylake

However, the top two can be a little comforting - the situation of the smaller players in the market, MSI, Asrock, ECS and Biostar, is even worse. Basruk and MSI have brought to stores approximately 2 one million motherboards (each), making reaching the goal of more than 6 million boards for the entire 2015 year virtually impossible unless some miracle happens within the generation of a generation The Skylake of . This is a particularly disappointing disappointment for Asrok, who only a few years ago enjoyed an impressive rise in the motherboard world and aimed at data of eight million boards a year or more, and believed that she could bring more than 7 motherboards this year.

Biostar and, The two small actresses with almost no representative in the country, brought a little over a million motherboards to the stores in the first half of the year - and they seem to be near breaking point. Has apparently decided on a gradual exit from this market.

Will the new boards of Skylake and Zen help save us from another convergence of competitiveness?
Asrock's new boards - and- Will save us from another convergence of competitiveness?

We have nothing left but to hope, once again, that "comparing conditions" in the processors market in the generation of The new one will help light up a new competitive fire in the computer world, bringing with it both the complex computer category and the hardware component market. Do you believe this could actually happen, or that the shrinking of the "classic" computing world is inevitable?

  1. For the regular home market, it has not been marketed for quite a while.
    Only complex systems (NUC) and servers

  2. The body of the market as we know it is going to be greatly reduced. And probably the forum ...

    What does that mean?!

  3. What does that mean?!

    The PC market has been declining for years, today there is no real reason to buy a standard home desktop.
    Most uses besides gaming all laptops are even pretty basic enough today, and gaming has the console market that Day is booming. And even if not, gaming on PC is a pretty small market share compared to the full PC market that was up to 5-10 years ago.

    How many people (especially young guys) do you know today that they don't even have a desktop computer at home, but only a mobile + smartphone? I know lots of them, and I'm not the only one.
    That's just the point.

  4. And gaming has the console market that Day is booming. And even if not, gaming on PC is a pretty small market share compared to the full PC market that was up to 5-10 years ago

    But to the best of my understanding the PC gaming market is booming

  5. Regarding gaming I already said that no matter how it blooms (and it doesn't bloom) it is still a small percentage compared to the full market it used to be and today is greatly reduced - this is exactly the meaning of shrinking .. All uses except gaming are disappearing ..
    And for the students, etc. - Even assuming that they are only students (which is not really true), what reason do they have to move to a desktop computer when they graduate?

  6. How do you know he doesn't bloom? And I did not say that it is only students and I did not say they will pass I said that they are not currently using PC does not mean that they will not use it in the future

  7. Why?

    Because my familiarity with them is mainly from shocking boards that are common to cheap computers in Israel.

  8. Some steps in turning points.
    The market is about to shrink with the meteoric growth of tablets and smartphones. The young do not even touch the computer.
    This will in turn force companies to reduce their choice to remain profitable (one or two boards per platform, one card per model, one drive series, etc.)
    With the addition of all the water coolers and the variety of ventilators that will disappear in parallel to the transition to miniaturized platforms (3-10 NM), which emit much less heat, the market is becoming dry and anemic.
    As a result, the interest in this system will be greatly reduced. The market loses customers-a matter
    5 - Very Small Physical Systems - With 1-2 types of connection inside and outside rather than duplicate (enough one drive one video card and one memory with powerful chips and also a weak supplier for much less energy-efficient technology)
    6. Everyone will have NIS 5000 board for one tiny 2 board, one 4 processor and two small, unformatted cards, one tiny vendor and one tiny SSD.
    If all the computers are anyway the same why not already buy ready made systems with warranty etc. Which further reduces the inventory of parts marketed to the home consumer and becomes more spare parts for the labs (so from pictures of Transformers on your screen card think a bag of alumina wrapped in flaky plastic ..)
    8 The end of the amateur world as it is today and certainly the end of the generation Modding enthusiasts (who already became today's designers in Darmal to wealthy people who order flashy parts on the Internet).
    That is:
    Most forum discussions just will not open.
    10. The Minority That Will Be Matter Everyone will say their professional opinion on the subject and this is it, Style: I'm a graphic artist Which computer to buy ison: Dear .., Cockatoos: The last series Lior: Not often before the crow: Cockatoos troll ..

  9. How do you know he is not blossoming?

    The very existence of this discussion.
    Being that you are (maybe) a gamer so you think everything is blooming and pink because you can't imagine a world without a PC, doesn't mean that this market is not a quarter at best than it was two years ago.

    So where do you think the PC gaming market is going?

  11. Probably the gamers who consume "heavy" gamnig are reduced. Most go to consoles and settle for that. Add in the crazy hardware prices too .. and you'll understand where the market is going. How many high-end video cards went up six years ago?

  12. Probably the gamers who consume "heavy" gamnig are reduced ..?

    For God's sake, how do you reduce it?

  13. 1. I can guess that the relative proportion of people who play computer ("gamers") out of the general population is actually dwindling in light of the entry into the market of smartphones, tablets and gaming consoles in recent years - even if a certain person has all the same technological devices (computer, tablet, smartphone And all types of gaming consoles), he can still play only one of them at any given time. If once in 100% (or close to that) of the time devoted to gaming is utilized by the PC, today it is likely to be split between several devices, so "gamers" inevitably play less on the computer nowadays.

    2. I personally prefer a personal computer (PC) that I can dismantle and maintain relatively easily, including choosing the various components to be installed and available for replacement from a variety of manufacturers, than a device that comes as a "black box" that is difficult to maintain without proper training and dedicated tools and components They are usually expensive and only fit the same device from the same model and manufacturer. The fact that people choose the opposite is a mistake in my opinion, but past experience shows that consumers do not always make the right choices (and this is true in all areas, not just in computers).

    3. About the article - It's not clear to me how Asus manages to lead the motherboard market in light of similar and cheaper alternatives from other manufacturers, especially given that ASRock and MSI have pretty good motherboards at lower prices (maybe their problem is in the marketing / advertising department Or their prices, although lower, are still not attractive enough). About Gigabyte - in light of the recent revelations, which revealed that newer versions of some low-end motherboards had some components removed and that some 4 pin connectors for fans actually functioned as 3 pins only, I wouldn't rush to buy their board (for balance I want Notice that my Gigabyte motherboard has been working correctly for over 8 years and I am very pleased with it.

  14. So where do you think the PC gaming market is going?

    Nowhere, I think you do not understand what I'm saying.

  15. So explain

    I think I was pretty clear.
    I wrote that today there is a significant reduction in the PC market for the simple reason that once everything was on the PC and now no longer.
    Today most home uses are done with laptops that do not say smartphones / tablets.
    And gaming is split between PCs and consoles (presumably it can be split into 3, PlayStation XBOX and PC).
    The way the PC market as a whole doesn't look at it -> is significantly reduced.
    And it doesn't matter if you think gaming on PC is still a fact, it is factual that it shares market share with consoles + even if it was exclusive (and it is not) then it is still a small percentage of the full PC market (all other uses except gaming).

  16. The question is whether the small segment of Gaming in PC is stable, up or down .. And what does this mean for technology development, supply, and prices

  17. Why not? I am joining the question, although according to studies I have seen, it is on the rise

  18. Do you read my reactions here at all?
    The PC market is shrinking, the minimal niche of gaming has also shrunk, but even if it grows (!!!) (and it really is not the other way around) it is still relatively negligible for any PC market that has shrunk due to reasons I have already mentioned 3 times.

  19. Even if the owner is not in this segment hold the shtetl mainly because of their alternatives and prices and availability.

  20. Not sure it actually comes down to the amount of people who use laptops, just we're in a weird time where for a couple of years there is no need to replace a trio, the processors have been almost the same power for a few years now as in the same 2011 memories, so why replace a motherboard? You can upgrade a video card and drives and that's it…

    And I do not know what's with you but I'm pretty sure that another 20 year in companies will use desktop computers for professional use and there are many reasons for this.

  21. (And it really is not really but the opposite).
    You have already said this mantra several times without explaining where you came from
    
    
    - - - Unified response: - - -
    
    
    Even if the owner is not in this segment hold the shtetl mainly because of their alternatives and prices and availability.
    The companies have never been held out of the amateur market, especially the Anavadia, which is only held by the professional market, and Intel and AMD gamers can do just fine by switching the production of the processors to the low market in the production of mobile processors.

    The companies were never kept from the amateur market

    That's exactly the point. That they would reduce this market by themselves and not fight it.
    Do you understand that just as a non-profit company closes, a non-profit department also shrinks or closes?

    
    
    
    
    AMD can do just fine

    So why is she in difficulties ??

  23. True, you said the companies could not keep themselves.
    And AMD has difficulties in its own right and it still has market share and that doesn't mean that a lack of a low amateur computer market that will kill it may hurt it more than other companies

    According to all reports, it breathes mainly thanks to the console market and Fair Pro thanks to Apple
    No. I said they would reduce the inventory relevant to our market to remain profitable.
    Asus will understand that she needs to market only one ATX 170 board and one other such MATX. (Instead of ALT-the latest mainstream thinker-the most current chipset-over 10!).
    Makes sense to them - boring to us.
