After printing and baking the PCB – people (mostly women) attach most of the components. The boards are also passed through numerous tests to check if they’re functioning properly. It’s interesting to see that the human eye is judged to be a better quality checker than machines.

Overall, Gigabyte’s manufacturing capacity is enough to build 1.5 million motherboards, 600,000 graphics cards, 300,000 desktop PCs, 20,000 notebooks, 30,000 servers, 20,000 mobile phones, and 100,000 PC chasses, all per month.

The company was founded in 1986, and has grown to a $1.44 billion (USD) company in that time.
