ASRock Revenue Soars Due to the Ryzen Effect

ASRock, a Taiwanese manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, had an amazing 2019 when it comes to the revenue. Surging around 31% on a Year-over-Year (YoY) basis and delivering revenue of 443.16 million US Dollars, ASRock is expecting to deliver even better results in 2020. When it comes to the underlying reasons for this notable increase, ASRock attributes it to the recent success of AMD's Ryzen family of processors and strong demand for the platform surrounding it. Adopting the AMD Ryzen processors in Mini-PCs, motherboards and server boards, ASRocks see strong demand for these products that should carry over in 2020.

Another reason for strong profits and even better chapters ahead is the developments in the US and European markets. Having previously been focused on the Asian market and marketing its products to that part, ASRock changed the strategy and started advertising its brand more to other regions like the US and Europe. This new strategy is progressing well and is expected to continue in the coming years. Additionally, it is worth noting that ASRock's graphics card sales started to turn profitable in 2019, and now that part of ASRock is attributing to profits as well.

If companies like ASRock, starts putting the name "Ryzen" next to really positive financial results, we sill see AMD's market share increasing faster, compared to what we see now with that 70-80% share in retail market.

Interesting, considering MSI had best VRM cooling for budget AM4 boards in B450 range, which is the most sold AMD motherboard.

This being a result of AM4 mobo sales seems extremely unlikely.
AsRock is a popular mobo maker. They have been making very appealing AM4 mobos before X570.

If anything on the consumer side was responsible, it's graphics cards. AsRock uses only AMD GPUs and their Navi lineup is quite good. AFAIK their Polaris/Vega stuff wasn't selling at all (they were late for the mining craze).
And of course AsRock is very active in industrial/embedded solutions.

Do they publish a financial statement in English?

This speaks directly to me. I have bought more As rock boards for AM4 builds than any other brand (because the BIOS are rock solid, RAM can be an issue though). I agree with "NOTB" too, this must have something to do with the GPUs that As rock are now selling. "lynx29" as per your post, my thought process on that is As Rock regularly has MIR on their boards. I recently bought a X470 Master SLI for $149.99 but it has a $40 MIR so the actuals cost was more like $109.99 and in Canadian dollars that is cheap. They also have the cheapest X399 board by at least $50 @ $339 Canadian for the As rock X399 Phantom Gaming 6.

That's because they were. They had their start as OEM for Asus and had to start from the basics.

I've been a strict ASUS Motherboard purchaser. I've had at least 5 to 6 ASUS Motherboards in the past 20 years. Can't really complain with that particular brand. Always gotten the Crosshair ROG brand.
This time around ASRock caught my attention so I pulled the plug and went with a Fatal1ty Gaming X mobo by ASRock. So far I'm happy with it though not sure if I would buy another ASRock for ZEN3 (My Next Upgrade). As it depends how much ASUS Crosshair x670 is going to sell for.

Asrock has steadily been expanding their motherboard offerings from low to high end.

For me now they are starting to over segment their motherboards with their x570 boards. Their x470 lineup was excellent.

Next step is looking for a good TR40 board...

They have some interesting offerings on Tr40.

I have been stuck at a 10 SATA port count and while I haven't been able to knock that down just yet I purchased an ASRock motherboard recently. Eight SATA and three NVMe drive support on the board. Granted stocks of products overall were low. My only complaint is that I can't disable the LED lights of the onboard Power and Reset buttons and analog debugger. I've purchased Gigabyte motherboards for 754, 939, AM3 and AM3+ and those all were very reliable.

For about 8 or 9 years now they have been performance and quality-oriented. Now is when it is finally paying off.

On my second ASROCK board x370 and the x570 Taichi, not disappointed one bit.

And what would that board be? I hope You're not talking about X570M Pro4. It's like a basic version, that got castrated even more. No USB C front port header, no wi-fi, back I/O looks like a joke, poor both VRM and it's cooling...

I've had decent results from ASRock over the past 10 years or so. They'll most likely be my next MB for whenever I get some funds to upgrade from my i5-4670k build.

I ran an ASRock K10N780SLIX3-WiFi for nearly 5 years with a Phenom II x4 940. I cranked out as much voltage (1.55V) as the board would let me at one point to OC that CPU. I eventually settled with a 1.4875V at 3.6GHz....that extra .0625V to run at 3.7GHz wasn't worth the extra 10C of heat she put out that kept her right around 63C when doing heavy gaming.

Ran a z87 Extreme4 for about 3 years until it magically died. Sent it in for RMA and got it replaced. Running the replacement for about the past 3 years in my Plex server.
When the z87 died on me, I picked up a z97 Extreme4, but it was DOA. I had to return it to MicroCenter and ended up with an ASUS z97-AR that I've been using the past 3+ years now.

well, it was also one of the cheaper boards.
It seems to handle a 4.4ghz all core oc on a 3700x

I am very happy with both my asrock mobos for the rocksolid bios stability and great customer service. My complain is only the silly cheap plasticky look of my x570 taichi, together with the silly looking uefi and lastly the very buggy RGB app for Windows.

Asrock actually belonged to Asus and was spun off, it wasn't an OEM for them

Tell you what, after all the motherboards I've had, I think my Asrock X299 Taichi XE is among my favorites, probably my #1.
