Intel and Nvidia Led GPU Sales In Q4
Graphics chip shipments for 2013 4Q were up 1.6% quarter-to-quarter and and up 2% compared to the same quarter last year, with Intel and Nvidia to lead in GPU sales, Jon Peddie Research (JPR) estimates.
The research firm said that AMD's overall unit shipments decreased 10.4%, quarter-to-quarter, Intel's total shipments increased 5.1% from last quarter, and Nvidia?s increased 3.4%.
A 34% of the PCs had discrete GPUs, which means that 66% of the PCs were using embedded graphics.
Finally, the overall PC market increased 1.8% qarter-to-quarter, but declined 8.5% year-to-year, due to
the popularity of tablets and the persistent economic slowness.
Regarding the suppliers' market share for 2013 4Q,
AMD's shipments of desktop APUs (heterogeneous GPU/CPUs) jumped 15% from the previous quarter but declined 26.7% in notebooks. AMD's discrete desktop shipments increased 1.8%, and notebook discrete shipments declined 6.7%. The company's overall PC graphics shipments decreased 10.4%.
Intel's desktop processor-graphics EPG shipments increased from last quarter by 5.2%, and Notebooks increased by 5.1%. The company's overall PC graphics shipments increased 5.1%.
Nvidia?s desktop discrete shipments were up 3.6% from last quarter; and its notebook discrete shipments increased 3.2%. The company's overall PC graphics shipments increased 3.4%.
Total discrete GPU (desktop and notebook) shipments were up 1.5% from the last quarter and down 2.4% from last year for the same quarter due to the same problems plaguing the overall PC industry.
JPR also said that 99% percent of Intel's non-server processors have graphics, and over 67% of AMD's non-server processors contain integrated graphics; AMD still ships integrated graphics chipsets (IGPs).
