Graphics cards sales dropped 12%

Posted on Monday, January 01 2007 @ 08:25:41 CET by

Research firm Jon Peddie Research says sales of graphics cards dropped 12 percent:
According to Jon Peddie Research (JPR), third quarter graphics boards revenues came in at about $4.97 billion, which translates into a 4.4% decline over Q2 and a 12.2% decline over Q3 2005. For comparison, graphics add-in-card sales hit a high of $5.88 billion in Q1 of this year.

JPR analyst Alex Herrera attributed decreased sales to the fact that both Nvidia and AMD/ATI were at the "tale-end" of the graphics chip generation in Q3 and needed to knock down prices in order to clear out their inventory. JPR estimates that 21.8 million graphics boards were sold in Q3 - a 10.6% increase sequentially and a 7.7% increase over the same period the previous year.
