In accordance with IDC, the market shrunk by 19.5% in comparison with this time final 12 months, which was not precisely an superior quarter by any means.  IDC figures a complete of 68 million computer systems had been despatched into the channel, and Canalys kind of agrees with their estimates being a 18% decline with 69.4 million PCs shipped.   This can positively affect all firms backside line, with AMD suggesting their gross sales could also be $1.1 billion beneath expectation which is a good chunk of final quarters $6.5 billion.

Part of this concern is the utter lack of curiosity in Home windows 11 proven by companies, and a lukewarm reception by shoppers.  A current examine discovered that simply over half of the PCs at present getting used have the {hardware} to assist Home windows 11 and with the present financial circumstances that’s unlikely to vary shortly.  There may be hope that many of those methods solely have a 12 months or so of dependable operation, however Q2/Q3 2023 is a great distance off.
