(Press Release) NVIDIA Corporation recently announced that sales of the Companys Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) has reached an all-time high in U.S. retail market share, powering the top three graphics boards sold, whether measured by units or by dollars. According to the most recent numbers reported by NPD TechWorld, a leading provider of sales tracking services for the consumer electronics and information technology industries, NVIDIA GPUs accounted for 68% of the dollars spent on graphics cards in the U.S. retail channel for May 2002. In the same timeframe, NVIDIAs U.S. market share based on the number of units sold was 63%, more than doubling the market share of the nearest competitor. Fueled by a top-to-bottom product strategy, seven out of the top 10-selling graphics boards sold in the month were powered by NVIDIA GPUs.
