Jon Peddie Research reports NVIDIA controlled 87.5 percent of the professional graphics card market in Q2 2010:
The market tracking company said that in the second quarter of this year 87.5% of professional graphics adapters shipped were Nvidia Quadro (up 2.2%), whereas ATI commanded only 12.5% of professional graphics accelerators with the FirePro lineup. Nonetheless, desktop ATI FirePro graphics accelerators managed to capture 11.4% of professional add-in graphics cards (up 0.9%), but the lion's share of 88.6% still belonged to Nvidia. The latter also managed to gain some share on the market of professional graphics accelerators for mobile computers.
Nvidia's achievement for Q2 2010 is quite remarkable since most of the Quadro graphics cards Nvidia shipped were based on previous generation technology, according Alex Herrera, a senior analyst at Jon Peddie Research.
