The year has been rough for many companies, as the slow global economy has resulted in some of the slowest computer and electronics sales in many years. All many of the companies can do is hold on and hope that things pick up in coming quarters.

Both Intel and NVIDIA were seeing some of the lowest sales numbers the firms had generated in a long time, but it looks as though the days of slow sales are behind the two firms in the graphics department. The GPU industry moved from a -5.59% loss in growth to a 3.29% improvement in Q1.

That means that more GPUs were shipped equaling more computers and notebooks being shipped. Intel continues to lead the graphics market with nearly half the market and NVIDIA sits in second place with 31.1% of the market. AMD brings up the third spot with 17.1% of the graphics market. Still the overall market is down 21.1% from the same quarter last year showing that while there are signs pointing to recovery in the computer and GPU market, things still have a long way to go.
