A total of 990,000 personal computers were shipped in the second quarter of this year up 4.2% from the same period last year, according to IDC Korea on Aug. 12.

Among them, 490,000 were desktops, while the rest were laptops.

“Factors are the stable supplies of Intel’s processors, along with the replacement of commercial PCs with the expiry of the Windows 7 technology support,” IDC said in a report.


In the local financial and private sectors, many companies and institutions purchased their annual supplies of PCs, and added more desktops and laptop computers.

The shipment of consumer PCs fell 4.4% to 460,000. The shipment of ultra-slim laptops also slipped a bit compared to last year, while gaming PC shipments remained largely unchanged.

IDC Korea said less gaming PCs were replaced despite the launch of the Nvidia’s GTX 16 because most top-ranking PC games were all made to be enjoyed comfortably on the existing GTX 1050·1060.

Despite the quarterly growth, the shipments for the first half of the year fell 2.5% on-year amid a saturated market.
