HWBOT mainboard usage since 2008

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I've been having a bit of fun with the database and pulled this chart from it. The unofficial mark means that I didn't put a lot of effort in taking out the false positives (eg: user indicated wrong motherboard), but these should be quite minimal. This chart shows the amount of unique overclockers that use a certain mainboard brand over time. Note: one person can use multiple brands! We can see that:


- 1/2 overclockers use ASUS

- 1/3 also use GIGABYTE


This is pretty interesting, because it kind of points to the situation where a lot of people are convinced of the quality of an ASUS mainboard (well, 50% does not use one!), but more and more people will test a GIGABYTE mainboard too. Translated into a current situation: people may use M4E first, but then also use GIGABYTE for good 3DMark01.

Just more height, so there's like 3cm per 10% rather than less than 1cm. e.g. April 2009 is hard to make out. It also gives space to add brands.


Have you not got access or Origin? Makes very pretty/easy to read graphs. Excel is just bleh imo for this sort of thing

No Access or Origin. Google charts APIs might be interesting for adding this kind of graphs to the frontpage, though. Need to look into that.


Here's a more pertinent chart: what brand of mainboard people use for Xtreme overclocking. XOC defined as CPU or VGA on subzero cooling. 2007/2008 might be a tad erratic, 2009-2011 data is okay. Check out Evga's position in 2009!
