According to new CPU-Z stats Asus still reigns supreme on the motherboard market, but its market share is dropping. It has gone down from 41.3% to 37.2% last year. Gigabyte, on the other hand, is doing rather well, having increased its market share from 12.8% to just over 19.2%. DFI has dropped from 6.1% to 4%, while MSI and Abit remain nearly flat, at 8.5% and 5.7% respectively.
Moving along to chipsets, on the Intel side the market is dominated, well, by Intel of course. Its market share is still growing, going up from 78.7% to 83.3% in the past 12 months. The number of ATI, VIA and SiS chipset based mobos is going down, while Nvidia managed to stay flat at 9.5%.
On AMD's turf, the market is still dominated by Nvidia chipsets, but its market share has dropped from 72.6% to 67.2%. ATI, or AMD, is doing great, raising its presence from a pathetic 7% to 18.5%. This is a 264% increase, the biggest across the board. VIA is losing the battle and dropping from 17.2% to 11.7% and it's probably going to get much worse for it.
