Research firm Jon Peddie Research estimates first quarter GPU shipments were up 44.3 percent year-over-year. Compared to last quarter, shipments showed traditional seasonal slowdown, although NVIDIA did manage to increase its GPU shipments from 32.70 million units in Q4 2009 to 33 million units in Q1 2010. Both AMD and NVIDIA saw their marketshare rise to 24 percent (+2.3 percent) and 31.5 percent (+5.0 percent), respectively, while Intel fell from 51.1 percent to 43.5 percent. Here's the press release from JPR:
Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry's research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, announced today its estimated graphics chip shipments and supplier’s market share for Q1’10.
For the year, 2009 came in above expectations with an 11% year to year growth, an amazing comeback. Q1 of 2010 showed traditional seasonal slowdown with everyone except Nvidia and SiS showing decline.
Intel was the leader in unit shipments for Q1’10, elevated by Clarksdale, continued Atom sales for Netbooks, and strong growth in the desktop segment. On a quarter-to-quarter basis Nvidia gained in the notebook integrated, and discrete segments as well as the desktop integrated segment. AMD gained a fraction in the desktop discrete segment and over four percent in notebook integrated.
AMD reported their graphics segment revenue for the quarter was $409 million, down from Q4’s $427 million and up significantly from a year ago ($218.).
Intel reported “revenue from chipset and other” of $1.761 billion in Q1.
Nvidia’s quarter, which straddles the calendar quarters reported revenues of $982 million for their Fiscal Q4’10 which is from September to the end of January. Their next quarter ends in April.
A new category - IPG
Q4’09 saw the first shipments of a new category, the Integrated Processor Graphics - IPG. With the advent of new CPUs with integrated or embedded graphics.We will see the rapid decline in deliveries for traditional chip-set graphics or IGPs (integrated graphics processors.) However for ease of reporting for now we’re including these devices in our Integrated numbers.
