Jon Peddie Research (JPR) has announced estimated graphics chip shipments and suppliers’ market share for 2014 2Q. The big drop in graphics shipments in Q1 has been partially offset by a small rise this quarter. Shipments were up 3.2% quarter-to-quarter, and down 4.5% compared to the same quarter last year.
For the 2Q, AMD saw its overall unit shipments to be increased 11% quarter-to-quarter, Intel’s total shipments increased 4% from last quarter, and Nvidia’s decreased 8.3%.
The attach rate of GPUs (includes integrated and discrete GPUs) to PCs, for the quarter was 139% (up 3.2%) and 32% of PCs had discrete GPUs, (down 3.6%) which mean 68% of the PCs are using the embedded graphics in the CPU.
The overall PC market increased 1.3% quarter-to-quarter, and decreased 1.7% year-to-year. Desktop graphics add-in boards (AIBs) that use discrete GPUs declined 17.5%.
