The result? Well, Jon Peddie Research (JPR) analyst Alex Herrera has completed analysis of the quarter and reports that the…

TIBURON, California March 16 2009 Jon Peddie Research--The market for graphics add-in boards (AIBs) proved anything but impervious to the downward pull of fourth quarter's economic collapse, according to a new report from market analysts at Jon Peddie Research (JPR).

But that's really an understatement, as the AIB market took a substantially bigger beating than the closely related markets for PCs and workstations, as OEMs and the channel curtailed new orders and ran down inventories. If there were…
