The price of Bitcoin has risen to the 40,000 U.S. dollar mark, and the market value of the entire digital currency has exceeded 1.2 trillion U.S. dollars. This has also led to a new round of madness in graphics card mining, and graphics card manufacturers in the AMD camp have also had a good life. Up.
AMD launched the RX 6000 series graphics cards at the end of last year. At the same time, the previous generation RX 5000 graphics cards were also discontinued to clear inventory. This time, it happened to encounter mining fever like the 2018 RX 500 series, so both new and old cards are very popular. The price of the RX 5000 remained firm before its delisting.
The situation of the RX 6000 series will only be more serious, because the supply is facing shortage, so the price increase is more, at least a double-digit increase, but this situation has allowed the AMD camp graphics card manufacturers to live a good life.
Take PowerColor, a major manufacturer, as an example. In November and December after the RX 6000 graphics card was launched, its performance almost doubled, driving the overall revenue of the Q4 quarter to NT$1.31 billion, a record high in 11 quarters.
In terms of profitability, the net profit after tax in December was NT$11.01 million, and the diluted earnings per share was NT$0.25, a record high in 8 months. The cumulative net profit for the Q4 quarter was NT$30.73 million, and the diluted earnings per share was NT$0.78. The Taiwan dollar has created a new high in 10 quarters.
Looking at the whole year, the company’s revenue reached NT$3.783 billion, a year-on-year increase of 25%, and its net profit after tax was NT$29.63 million, successfully turning losses into profits.
