TIBURON, Calif—September 10, 2007—If you think the workstation is some last-century relic whose fortunes in the market have long since faded, think again. As Jon Peddie Research again finds with its Q2’07 tabulations, the workstation market is more than simply surviving, it’s prospering. Setting another high (by JPR records), Q2’07 saw a total of 718,000 branded workstations shipped, representing robust 17.1% year-to-year growth. Revenue was up to $1.7 billion, delivering a slightly more modest 15.8% increase, as ASPs took a 3.4% (sequential) drop. The close-tracking market for professional graphics also hit another high, with sales of 931.9 thousand units accounting for…

TIBURON, CA—June 13, 2007—Perhaps the best that can be said for the add-in board market in Q1’07 is that things can’t get much worse. Jon Peddie Research has completed tabulations and analysis of the first quarter, and while the numbers weren’t good, the company reports much of the downturn should be temporary. Graphics AIB vendors shipped approximately 20.6 million units in this last quarter, down about 2.2 % sequentially and 7.4% year-to-year. While the unit story may only be a tad disappointing, revenue went downhill in a far more dramatic fashion. ASPs and total dollars spent (street) were way down to…

The workstation market remains strong Overall, the workstation market continues to pleasantly surprise. As expected, quarterly growth rates have subsided a bit from the 25% to 35% increases (year-to-year) JPR had seen in late ’05 and early ’06, but they remain…
