Market research firm Jon Peddie Research claimed Monday that the majority of workstations supplied in 2004 were based on conventional x86 microprocessors. The trend, according to the company, was a continuous decline of proprietary microprocessors-based machines.

Jon Peddie Research (JPR) reports that roughly 1.7 million workstations were shipped in 2004, accounting for approximately $4.5 billion in worldwide revenue. Of that, the PC-derived workstation, a machine that leverages technologies derived from the high-volume PC platform, accounted for roughly 92% of units and 88% of revenue, while the share of Traditional Proprietary (RISC/Unix) workstations continued to shrink, according to JPR.

According to Gartner, another market research agency, about 169 million of personal computers were shipped in 2004.

The JPR Workstation Report is a semi-annual reporting service focusing on both the technologies and markets for professional workstations. The March 2005 issue is over 400 pages, with 185 figures and 79 tables. A table of contents is available for download at the company’s web-site.
