ASRock pushes low price motherboard for entry-level market
Monica Chen, Taipei; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 27 July 2007]

ASRock has launched its ConRoe1333-series motherboards featuring FSB support up to 1333MHz.

ASRock adopts the Intel 945GC A2 stepping chipset for the series. Although Intel's official maximum FSB support for the chipset is only up to 800MHz, ASRock has been able to reach 1333MHz allowing the motherboards to support the new Core 2 Duo E6050-series processors.

The ConRoe1333-series including ConRoe1333-D667 (with IGP) and ConRoe1333-GLAN (non-IGP) have channel prices in China around RMB$445-495 (US$58.85-65.46), noted the sources.

In additional news, ASRock's 2006 revenues were NT$12.84 billion (US$390.5) with net incomes after tax of NT$1.78 billion, and an EPS (earnings per share) of NT$23.94, while its first half of 2007 revenues were NT$5.29 billion. The market predicts ASRock's 2007 net incomes after tax will have a chance to increase 30% on year, while EPS will jump to over NT$30. ASRock's goal of shipping 12 million motherboards in 2007 is also expected to be achieved.
