Despite the fact that the second quarter is typically the slowest quarter of the calendar year for processor demand and concerns that the economic woes in the US are spreading to other regions, worldwide processor unit shipments grew 3.1% on quarter and 16.1% on year. Strong vendor price competition in the middle and low end of the desktop PC processor and mobile PC processor market segments caused overall market revenues to decline 4.5% on quarter to $7.7 billion.
