ASUS shipped a record 52 million motherboards in 2005, meaning one in three PCs sold last year was powered by an ASUS motherboard.
Since 1992, ASUS has shipped 206 million motherboards.
"With the advent of personal computing, ASUS technology now plays a major role in people's everyday lives," said Sunny Han, Director of ASUS Global Brand Center. "ASUS motherboards, with innovative designs and stability, are the trustworthy foundation for 1/3 of the PCs sold in 2005."
In Computex Taipei 2004, ASUS exhibited the "Smile of Technology", an interpretation of Leonardo De Vinci's Mono Lisa made with thousands of motherboard components. This year, in celebration of its record shipments, ASUS will display three new motherboard statues based on three global landmarks ? Taipei 101 (world's tallest building), Mt. Everest (world's highest peak), the Great Wall ( only architectural structure visible from outer space) ? and the company's motherboard achievements to freshen up the usually tech-heavy Computex Taipei.
The three motherboard statues will be on display outside Hall 2 of the Taipei World Trade Center (between Warner Village and Hall2) from June 6-10.
