The latest GPU marketshare data from Jon Peddie Research reveals NVIDIA once again lost ground to both AMD and Intel in the graphics market.
The biggest winner was obviously Intel, but AMD didn't do too badly. In fact, JPR says AMD saw a greater increase in raw shipments than Intel (15.4% vs. 9.7%) between the first quarters of 2010 and 2011. Nvidia wasn't so lucky, purportedly suffering a 28.4% decline over the same time period. Good thing Nvidia's Tegra 2 chips are showing up in so many new tablets, because apparently, folks are giving GeForces the cold shoulder.

The mobile GPU arena is where they are taking a toasting.
The 460M is good but weak in the high end and pricey for the midstream. 560M is late so it's not saving the day.
The 480M failed and the 485M is long in the tooth, while the 580M is late, late, late!
The 555M is great, but was late as well, so it is only gradually gaining share.
2010 was the same way. The 480 was late and not a great hit due to heat and power. The 4 series overall didn't hit till late in 2010 and that was much later than similar performing AMD chips.
IF Nvidia gets themselves in gear and can get the entire 5 series out during Q2, they "may" have a recovery in 2011. But it's looking like they won't manage to get that working either, as the rumours say Q3 or Q4 before those products come.
Have to see, but even 2011 isn't looking like a recovery for Nvidia yet.
