Fortunately and as expected, the workstation market has slowed down. After a robust rebound beginning in the second half of 2009 and continuing through 2010, the market has found a more modest and sustainable pace. While reduced growth might leave some disappointed, we see it as a healthy sign the market is stabilizing and averting a second dip, one that the related market for professional graphics hardware couldn’t avoid. Q1’11 is now in the books, with the quarter seeing 860.0 thousand workstations shipped worldwide, representing a 4.8% sequential decline and an 18.6% year-over-year gain. Both of those figures need to be…

Overall shipments of graphics AIBs for the quarter came in below the last quarter at 16.1 million units compared to 19.01 million for Q1’11. The evolution of the graphics market has resulted in two major super-categories of graphics AIBs: those which carry Nvidia graphics chips and those which carry AMD chips. Nvidia GPU-based boards declined slightly by 0.1% from Q1, while AMD-based boards increased 0.1% for the same period. Sales of AIB products have been directly impacted by the rise of integrated CPUs from Intel and AMD, which have increasingly powerful graphics. Shipments during the second quarter of 2011 behaved according…

It's been a while since the workstation market's behavior could be described as normal, but that's an appropriate one-word description for the second quarter of 2011 — not great, not bad, but pretty normal. And all things considered, normal is fine. Completing analysis of the workstation and professional graphics market for the second quarter, Jon Peddie Research senior analyst Alex Herrera finds that after the big economic bust of two years ago, followed by an atypically strong growth pattern last year, the market has calmed down in 2011. Not since the first half of 2008 has the market showed any kind…

Quarter-to-quarter negative 2.9%—Desktop discrete sales up The news was disappointing for Intel, but encouraging for Nvidia and for AMD on the desktop. AMD lost 0.3%, quarter-to-quarter, Intel slipped 5.3%, and Nvidia increased by 3.6%. The overall PC market declined 13.7% quarter-to-quarter while the graphics market only declined 3.2% reflecting an interest on the part of consumers for double-attach—the adding of a discrete GPU to a system with integrated processor graphics. On a year-to-year basis we found that total graphics shipments during Q1’13 dropped 12.9% similar to PCs shipments declined by 12.6% overall. GPUs are traditionally a leading indicator of the market,…

Quarter-to-quarter AIBs shipments increased 3%, and grew 3% year-to-year The news was encouraging; quarter-to-quarter, the market grew 3 % (compared to the desktop PC market, which increased 4.45%). On a year-to-year basis we found that total AIB shipments during the quarter increased 3%, which is more than desktop PCs which declined of 6.1%. GPUs are traditionally a leading indicator of the market because a GPU goes into every system before it is shipped; most of the PC vendors are guiding down to flat for the next quarter. The overall PC desktop market increased  quarter-to-quarter including double-attach—the adding of a second (or…

Nvidia’s Shield is also breaking new ground and can run Android games as a console or handheld. The device may also appeal to the hardcore with its…
