Gigabyte is one of the biggest motherboard makers in the world, and we visited the company’s factory in Taiwan to find out how they’re manufactured.
About a quarter of Gigabyte’s motherboard output comes from its Nan Ping factory about an hour west of Taipei. About 400,000 motherboards come off the assembly line every month.
Robots remove a lot of the most complex work from humans. However, a surprising amount of construction is still done by hand: the insertion of many larger components, for instance, and visual checks of the motherboards.
