An analyst report released Monday indicated that graphics add-in card sales were down sequentially in terms of both units and revenue, although the industry noted a significant year-over-year gain.Jon Peddie Research guestimates eVGA, PNY, Sapphire and MSI are the top graphics card vendors.
As expected, the first quarter results showed an 8 percent drop in the number of graphics cards, to 24.4 million units, Jon Peddie Research reported. Revenue fell by 20 percent, unsurprising during the first quarter, when sales typically trail off after the holiday season. But unit sales also increased 18 percent compared to a year ago, a sign of positive growth.
