Asus pulled in a revenue of NT$22.99 billion ($704.26 million) during August -- and despite its on-month growth, it is an 11.2% decline on-year. Some analysts are anticipating a 30% to 40% sequential increase in the third quarter. The company expects to ship some 5.5 to 6 million motherboards, 1.8 million notebooks, and 1.5 million netbooks in the quarter. This compares to the second quarter's 5 million, 1.2 million, and 1.1 million units.
Meanwhile, Gigabyte posted NT$3.99 billion revenue in August, shipping 1.55 million motherboards and 250,000 to 300,000 graphics cards. MSI saw revenues hit NT$7.63 billion last month, a 1% drop on-month and 3.81% on-year. With the holiday season creeping near, and Windows 7 on the horizon, where do you think things will stand in the coming months?
