Albatron moves into the IPC market

Gets order for arcade parts

Albatron has scored a major order for industrial motherboards that will be used in arcade machines. The order is for un-named companies in Japan and the US.

Albatron is expecting to have shipped some 8-10,000 boards by the end of the year. The contract is good for five years and it should contribute to about 10 percent of the company's overall sales.

Interestingly, Albatron is also shipping a lot of industrial use graphics cards, again we'd presume these are for use with the aforementioned arcade machines.

What we'd call gambling but the industry calls gaming motherboards are a huge market these days and there are companies that specialize in this market alone.

Hopefully this boost in income will allow Albatron to launch its mATX board for AMD CPU's at a larger scale than it has up to this point.
