TIBURON, Calif. – February 24, 2011 – New PCgamers worldwide who are hungry for the best may be giving the PC hardware industry a welcome boost this year.  The unusual spike in PC hardware growth is due to various influences, says Ted Pollak, Senior Gaming Analyst for Jon Peddie Research (JPR):  Pollak notes the natural cycle of PC hardware purchases from historical inflection points, system demands of modern FPS (first person shooters) and RTS (real-time strategy) titles, cheaper high resolution displays, SSDs (solid state drives), and the convenience of digital distribution services like Steam and Direct2Drive. But Pollak also attributes growth…

TIBURON, CA-January 31  2011-Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry's research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, announced estimated graphics chip shipments and suppliers’ market share for Q4’10. Overall shipments of graphics devices for the year, 2010 came in below expectations with an unimpressive 4.3% total year to year growth—a disappointing result given the enthusiastic start of the year.

TIBURON, Calif--December 7, 2010--The workstation market continued its steady determined march back to the  volume levels it saw prior to the economic collapse that kicked off in the fourth quarter of 2008. Jon Peddie Research has wrapped up its third quarter analysis of the workstation market and reports the industry shipped 849.7 thousand workstations in Q3'10, representing a robust 31.8% year-over-year growth. Most importantly, given analyst Alex Herrera's expectations and hopes for the quarter, Q3 was Goldilocks-ideal: not too hot, not too cold. Sequential growth slowed a bit to 6.9% (from the perhaps-a-little-too-hot 9.6% gain in Q2), showing some moderation the…
