GPU shipments up 20% last quarter

Posted on Tuesday, October 30 2007 @ 01:25:03 CET by


Research firm Jon Peddie Research released a new report on the graphics card market. The firm says total shipments where 97.85 million units in Q3 2007 - up 20% compared to Q2 2007 and up 18.2% compared to Q3 2006.

The biggest GPU manufacturer in the desktop market was NVIDIA with 37.8%, followed by Intel at 33.5% and AMD at 17.5%. In the mobile market Intel is king with 50.9%, AMD takes the second spot with 23.4% and NVIDIA is third with 22.8%.
Mobile chips continued their growth in units with 25.8 million units (up less than one percent over the last quarter), to claim 26.4% of the market, down from 31.5% last quarter.

The desktop saw market share growth from 68.5% last quarter to 73.6% this quarter, or 72 million units.

"The third quarter of 2007 was the second quarter in a row to surprise us. There was growth in the second quarter, which is normally a slow period, and the third quarter, which is usually good, was a record this time," said Dr. Jon Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Research. "We attribute the market's performance to increased demand by consumers for multimedia-rich systems, and, to a certain extent, to demands of Windows Vista."
