Barclays: CPU shipments growing stronger than expected

Posted on Sunday, February 21 2010 @ 03:35:41 CET by

Barclays Capital analysts predict growth in unit shipments of consumer and server processors will be stronger than expected this year, but that average selling prices (ASPs) will drop in the next two years. More info at EE Times.
The firm cited strong fourth quarter sales, an expected uptick in businesses buying new computers and an overall economic recovery as reasons for its improved forecasts. PC processors sales rose 6.2 percent in 2009 to 339 million units, it reported.

The average selling price of a PC processor was up six percent or about $5 in the last quarter to $89, mainly due to improvements in the price of server chips. However Barclays predicted ASPs will decline three percent to $85 in 2010 and fall another five percent in 2011 to $80.
