Motherboard players purchasing components jointly to save cost - PCSTATS.com Motherboard players purchasing components jointly to save cost

In addition to weak global PC demand, rising costs for key components such as PCBs and IC chips, as well as increasing wages in China are all impacting motherboard players' profitability.
