Prior to that shift, Q4 was a seasonally up quarter, since 2008 it’s been a seasonally low to down quarter—and this year it was down the most since 2008 (see figure 1). A lot…

TIBURON, Calif— December 13, 2011--Last quarter, Jon Peddie Research labeled the workstation market's behavior with a simple one-word description: normal. Shipment results weren't great, but they weren't bad either. Now in less volatile times, no vendor would get enthused by such tepid numbers. But these haven't been those times, as the industry hadn't seen anything resembling normal behavior for quite some time. From mid-2008 to mid-2011, the market took a hit from the biggest economic downturn in a generation, followed by a relatively steady, but not stutter-free, recovery. Meanwhile, the closely related market for professional graphics, its results a harbinger for…

Not since the first half of 2008…
