Well 16 million discrete graphics cards were sold in the fourth quarter of 2011, slightly less than in the third quarter of that year, when there were 17.2 million units well. On an annualized basis have been well sold 68 million units, of which only accounts for about 3 million copies on the enthusiast segment, are located in the graphics card beyond the 300-dollar mark.
