Although Gigabyte's gaming notebook business is currently still suffering from losses, the company's 2016 EPS are expected to be better than 2015 thanks to its motherboard and graphics card businesses.
Analysts are claiming it globally shipped 7.8 million motherboards and 1.6 million graphics cards in the first half of 2016, and is expected to ship 16.5 million motherboards and 3.5 million GPUs for the whole year.
For the third quarter, Gigabyte is expected to ship at least 4.5 million motherboards. Although Gigabyte's 2016 motherboard shipments are expected to be lower than the 18-20 million units it shipped the previous years, the company's gross margins will only drop slightly. Given the state of the industry, it means that things are going along rather well.
Gigabyte shipped 3.25 million graphics cards in 2015.
