Overall GPU shipments (rounded up) decreased -4% from last quarter, AMD decreased -1% Nvidia decreased -20% and Intel, decreased -1%.
Year-to-year total GPU shipments decreased -10%, desktop graphics decreased -6%, notebooks decreased -12%.
- AMD's overall unit shipments decreased -1.41% quarter-to-quarter, Intel's total shipments decreased -0.74% from last quarter, and Nvidia's decreased -20.01%.
- The attach rate of GPUs (includes integrated and discrete GPUs) to PCs for the quarter was 132% which was down -7% from last quarter.
- Discrete GPUs were in 27.78% of PCs, which is down -4.94%.
- The overall PC market increased 1.06% quarter-to-quarter, and decreased -5.83% year-to-year.
- Desktop graphics add-in boards (AIBs) that use discrete GPUs decreased -20.81% from last quarter, reflecting seasonality and the clearing out of inventory from older models and Nvidia introduced several new boards in Q2.
- Q2'16 saw a decrease in tablet shipments from last quarter.
AMD's shipments of desktop heterogeneous GPU/CPUs, i.e., APUs, for desktops decreased -22.2% from the previous quarter. AMD's shipments were down -0.4% in notebooks. Desktop discrete GPUs increased 4.03% from last quarter, and notebook discrete shipments decreased -3.7%. AMD's total PC graphics shipments decreased -1.4% from the previous quarter.
Intel's desktop processor embedded graphics (EPGs) shipments decreased from last quarter by -4.5% and notebook processors increased by 1.4%, and total PC graphics shipments decreased -0.7% from last quarter.
Nvidia's desktop discrete GPU shipments were down -28.15% from last quarter; and the company's notebook discrete GPU shipments decreased -5.7%, and total PC graphics shipments decreased -20.0% from last quarter.
Total discrete GPUs (desktop and notebook) shipments decreased -14.19% from the last quarter, and decreased -1.03% from last year. Sales of discrete GPUs fluctuate due to a variety of factors (timing, memory pricing, etc.), new product introductions, and the influence of integrated graphics. Overall, the CAGR from 2014 to 2017 is now -8%.
Ninety-nine percent of Intel's non-server processors have graphics, and over 66% of AMD's non-server processors contain integrated graphics; AMD still ships integrated graphics chipsets (IGPs).
