The latest results from Jon Peddie Research are in, and they aren't overly encouraging for AMD. According to the firm, Sunnyvale's share of the graphics market tumbled in Q4 2013, despite significant price cuts and the launch of both the R9 290 and R9 290X. AMD's total GPU shipments fell by 10.4% quarter-on-quarter, while Intel's share increased by 5.1% and Nvidia grew 3.4%. The total market for PC graphics increased 1.8% quarter-on-quarter, but was down 8.5% year-on-year. Unfortunately, this isn't expected to improve; JPR expects the industry to ship 446M units in 2014 and just 422M by 2017 as... Read more...
We've talked about AMD's server roadmap on multiple occasions this year while simultaneously covering the company's ramp of its FirePro graphics cards. With all the Bobcat, Llano, and Bulldozer chatter, the quiet passing of AMD's workstation offering has gone all but unnoticed. That, at least, is the argument from John Peddie Research, which chronicles the decline of AMD's efforts in this sphere even as it aggressively ramps its professional GPU products. We wouldn't be surprised if AMD struck a different tone with regard to its workstation business, but the company's own website lists just two... Read more...
So you consider yourself a power user, and as such, you wouldn't be caught dead and rotting with integrated graphics, right? Fair enough, but remember you're part of an elite bunch. For every PC user like yourself, there are scores of others who are content to surf the Web, fire off emails, and even load a casual game or two without dropping several hundred dollars on a discrete graphics card. It's because of these users that Intel claims the lion's share of the graphics market. According to a new report from Jon Peddie Research, Intel increased its lead over Nvidia and AMD in the 3rd quarter and... Read more...
Jon Peddie Research has released a report pegging the total value of the PC gaming hardware market at some $27 billion in 2010, up from $20 billion in 2008. Currently, 'enthusiast' class hardware accounts for ~46 percent of that amount. JPR predicts that this will fall to 35 percent in 2013, but because that shift will occur in a growing industry, the total dollar value of hardware sales will grow from $9.5 billion in 2009 to $12.5 billion in 2013. Ted Pollak, Video Game Industry Analyst for JPR, cites a number of influences for this phenomenon. "PC hardware has caught up to most of the software... Read more...
Data from Jon Peddie Research confirms the positive GPU sales information we've heard from AMD of late, with the GPU market as a whole growing by 14.7 percent in Q4 as compared to Q3, and 10.3 percent for the entire year. Intel led the quarter in both market share and increased unit shipments, thanks partially to the joint impact of Atom chipset sales and its new Clarkdale processors, which JPR is calling CIGs (CPU integrated graphics.) Since Intel effectively owns both categories and Atom's effect on the mobile market has been additive rather than disruptive, Intel's overall volume was boosted... Read more...
Market analysis firm Jon Peddie Research has released its report on graphic processor sales in the third quarter. According to the data, the strong Q2 rebound was no one-time event; GPU sales continued to climb into Q3 and are expected to rise further in Q4. Intel, AMD, SiS, and VIA all saw their market share increase, with AMD leading the pack. Matrox was the sole exception; its share of the GPU market has dropped to 0.0 percent according to JPR.AMD picked up 1.4 percentage points of market share; Intel grew its share by 1.6 percentage points, and NVIDIA managed to lose 4.3 percent market share...

There's cheerful news from Sunnyvale today; AMD is claiming to now lead the discrete mobile GPU market with a 36.5 percent market share gain and a whopping 87.2 percent more units sold in the first six months of 2009 compared to the first six months of 2008. At this point, AMD claims to hold 53 percent of the discrete mobile market, and credits the jump in sales to the strong positioning of the ATI Mobility HD 4000 series. AMD points to design wins with HP (the dv6T), Acer, Samsung, Asus, and MSI, but the HD 4570 also tips up as the default option on Dell's Studio 15 and on HP's ProBook series.... Read more...
Jon Peddie Research released its quarterly report on the state of the GPU market today and optimistically forecasts a strong third quarter. The second quarter bucked seasonal trends; sales were up a massive 31.29 percent. That's in contrast to what we typically see in Q2; over the past eight years sales have usually fallen slightly from Q1-Q2, not shot up. Of the big three, Intel and AMD saw their GPU shipments and market shares increase, while NVIDIA's own market share took a 0.5 percent hit. Shipments at all three companies grew by 35.2 percent, 41.5 percent, and 23.6 percent respectively. Every... Read more...
