Default GPU Shipments Drop Significantly in Q4 2008

With major computer component sales being very tightly dependant on the sales of computers, a downturn in the PC market inevitably leads to a downturn in component sales like memory, GPU, and CPUs. The latest GPU shipment numbers from Jon Peddie Research (JPR) are in and things donít look good for the GPU market.

The shipment numbers for Q4 2008 are in for the graphics market and total shipments for the quarter was 72.35 million units. During Q4 of 2007, the number of GPUs shipped was 100.5 million. In Q3 2008, 111.26 million GPUs were shipped showing a marked drop in quarter-to-quarter shipments of GPUs.

The drop during the Q4 holiday shopping season is also indicative of the low holiday spending seen in virtually all markets. JPR reports that Q4 2008 was the first quarter that shipments had decreased compared to Q3 since 2000. Growth from Q3 2008 to Q4 2008 was down 34.98%.
