Keep in mind that the consensus forecast is a SURVEY. This forecast is in-line with most other predicitons. They also have other reports which were right on. They were first predicting a double digit decline for 2008. They were first prediciting an increase of more than 90% for 2010. The "wild card" for 2012 are Samsung (mainly), and maybe TSMC, Intel and Hynix.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
