Jon Peddie Research reports GPU shipments grew 17.08% in Q4 2007 to 106.37 million units.

Intel and NVIDIA saw huge growths of 40.2% and 42.3%, respectively. AMD trails behind with a 26.2% rise in shipments.
According to JPR, AMD was responsible for 22.8% of all shipments, while Nvidia had 31.8% and Intel carved the bigger piece of the pie 41.1%. Compared to last year, AMD seems to have largely held its ground (its Q4 06 share was 23%), while Nvidia's share increased 3.4 points and Intel's went up 3.7 points. Indeed, Intel seems to be taking back some of the market from its rivals, presumably thanks to its newer and faster GMA X3000 and GMA 3000-series integrated graphics processors.

JPR has also released numbers covering the desktop and notebook markets specifically. On the desktop, AMD had a 19% share, compared to 37.1% for Nvidia and 37.7% for Intel. In notebooks, AMD took back the second place spot with a 29% share—up a cool 8.3 points—while Nvidia chalked up 22.8% of shipments. Intel essentially ruled the other half of the market with 47% of shipments.
