First-Quarter PC Graphics ShipmentsMonday 07th May 2007, 01:01:00 PM, written by Arun
Jon Peddie Research has released their Q1 2007 PC GPU Shipment numbers a few days ago, with the press release available on our very own JPR portal - in addition, Digitimes has posted an extra snippet not available in the press release regarding desktop IGP market share. It looks like NVIDIA really has been bleeding share in the motherboard GPU category this quarter, with significant drops in both desktops and laptops.
On the other hand, they seem to be doing better than AMD in terms of discrete GPU shipments, and have managed to grab more than 60% share in the discrete notebook segment. In terms of combined shipments, Intel remains number one both overall and for the laptop market, while NVIDIA actually shipped the most chips in the desktop part of the market.
Interestingly, VIA and SiS are also gaining IGP share, while AMD's is stable. NVIDIA is thus the only loser in that category, probably being affected by two problems at once: first, in terms of CPUs, Intel has been gaining market share and NVIDIA didn't have any IGP product for their processors in the quarter. Secondly, AMD is gaining IGP share for their own CPUs due to bundling and other strategies in the OEM space, which is hurting their competitors.
More data is available in the press release, along with other articles available on our JPR portal.
