Nvidia Was The Sole GPU Maker That Increased Its GPU Shipments In Q3 2016

Nvidia’s market share increased 2.2% from last quarter and 0.4% from last year, while Intel lost 1.6% market share from last quarter, and AMD’s overall share decreased 0.6%, from last quarter

These figures are included in the latest report from Jon Peddie Research on the GPUs used in PCs for the Q3'16.

Nvidia did particularly well in Q3'16, fueled by their Pascal-based product line and the rash of new AAA graphics-demanding titles.

The PC market rose in Q3 from the previous quarter, but declined from the same quarter last year. The quarter to quarter gain was largely due to gaming as well as data center sales. PC suppliers are seeing growth in gaming desktops and notebooks, and hope this will offset the slowdown in overall PC shipments. while they are high ASP systems, the two segments combined can only contribute a few million unit shipments a year, less than the decline of the total PC market.

Overall GPU shipments (rounded up) increased 20% from last quarter, AMD increased 15% Nvidia increased 39% and Intel, increased 18%. Year-to-year total GPU shipments increased 0.3%, desktop graphics decreased -4%, notebooks increased 3%.

The gaming market is lifting the entire PC market and has overwhelmed the console market.

The three market leaders, AMD, Intel, and Nvidia all introduced new products in the first half of the year while the channel and OEMs sold off older inventory. Q3 saw the channel and OEMs restocking for the holiday season, and doing so with enthusiasm indicating a bullish attitude.

According to JPR:

The third quarter is, on average, usually up from the previous quarter as the channel and OEMs stock up for the holiday season. Judging by the big overall increase, those resellers are anticipating a strong demand in the 4th quarter.

One thing to note, the Gaming PC segment, where higher-end GPUs are used, continues to deliver growth for PC makers. New gaming content and the promise of Virtual Reality help drive the demand for gaming desktops and notebooks.
