VR Zone took a look at Mercury's latest graphics card market research.

One of the findings was a shift from discrete to integrated graphics in notebooks, with integrated graphics reaching a record 77 percent in the total notebook graphics market.

The amount of integrated graphics chips in the desktop market increased from 60 percent in Q3 2005 to 63 percent in Q4 2005.
Both NVIDIA and ATI gained share in the integrated chipset market, allowing them to stem any share loss and actually gain slight share in the overall graphics market, despite the continued shift to integrated. In discrete graphics, market shares were relatively stable, with NVIDIA gaining 1% share from ATI.
In the notebook discrete market ATI managed to grab 1 percent from NVIDIA, reaching a record high of 77.1 percent in the fourth quarter, up from 75.8 percent in the third quarter.
