Jon Peddie: Discrete GPUs will still exist in 2020

Posted on Saturday, October 09 2010 @ 11:00:21 CEST by


Jon Peddie from Jon Peddie Research predicts discrete graphics cards will still be on the market in 2020. The lower and middle-end of the PC market will increasingly switch to CPUs with integrated graphics, but the high-end, enthusiast, workstation, and probably the upper half of the performance segment will continue to have performance and power requirements that make integration an impossible task.
"The high end, enthusiast and workstation, and probably the upper half of the performance segment will have performance and power requirements such that they cannot be integrated into a CPU," said Jon Peddie in an interview for an X-bit labs article.

Premium graphics cards that cost form $200 and upwards will still deliver proper benefit for their price, according to Mr. Peddie.

Demands for graphics cards performance have been increasing because of amplification of requirements of video games. However, in the coming years, it is believed, resolutions of monitors will increase and so do the demands towards performance of graphics sub-system.

Agreed. The mid and upper end are still going to be discrete for a decade or more. The focus will be on getting those discrete chips on power budgets that will put them in wider ranges of devices. Laptops and smaller net aware devices are going to be the wave of the future. People are willing to trade some capability to get a smaller and more mobile form factor. Laptops may well be 75-80% of the computer market by 2015.
