This may be about to change, according to Digitimes. Sapphire is said to be in the midst of a motherboard push and it is aiming to seize market share from second-tier motherboard makers like ASRock, ECS and MSI. Sapphire does not appear to be willing to lock horns with first-tier players like Asus and Gigabyte.
However, this does not mean that Sapphire is an AMD-exclusive outfit when it comes to motherboards. In fact, it currently has more motherboard SKUs for Intel Socket 1155 and Socket 1150 processors than AMD FM2 and AM3+ platforms.
Sapphire wants to outpace Biostar and ASRock next year, creeping up on MSI in the process.
