Year-on-year growth estimates for 2009 exceed expectations

Graphics market grows by 14 per cent

Estimated shipments and market share figures from Jon Peddie Research indicate that the graphics market has grown by 14 per cent over the course of the last year.

Intel led the way with revenue of $1.8 billion for the fourth quarter, thanks to strong sales of the Atom chipset for netbooks and strong growth in the desktop segment.

AMD suffered in the desktop and notebook discrete segments due to supply shortages in 40nm components, but performed well in integrated notebook sales, and was able to report sequential revenue growth of 40 per cent.

Meanwhile, Nvidia did well with discrete desktop sales but slipped on integrated, however the exact figures have not yet been released as its Q4 ends this month.
