According to Ministry of Economic Affairs data, purchases of Asus-brand smartphones have captured 43.5 percent of subsidies allocated for the initiative. The company is yet dominant in the gaming PC market.

Asus is followed by InFocus at about 20 percent, and HTC at about 15 percent. The ministry said that as most 2G users are older, they tend to steer away from smartphones made by top brands, such as Sony and Apple.

Furthermore, most 2G subscribers who took advantage of the initiative are Chunghwa Telecom, the ministry added.

However, Asus is also arguably invincible in the gaming notebooks industry this decade because of making efforts to innovate. The company unveiled two Gaming notebooks ROG GX700, ROG G752 and a gaming display ROG Swift PG348Q in this week.

Moreover, the 6th-generation Intel Skylake Core i7 processors and the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics cards are secrets behind the two go-extreme notebooks. And these new models are VR compatible.
