The GPU shipments Q4’2019 increased 3.4% sequentially from last quarter, with AMD's shipments to increase by 22.6%, while Nvidia's decreased by -1.9% and Intel's increased by 0.2%.
These figures are included in the latest Q4'19 report from Jon Peddie Research on the GPUs used in PCs.
According to the report, AMD's market share from last quarter in overall GPU shipments increased 3.0%, Intel's decreased -2.0%, and Nvidia's market share decreased -0.97%, as indicated in the following chart.
However, in discrete GPU shipments, AMD moved up to 27% from 26% last year, and 24% last quarter. Nonetheless, Nvidia is still the dominant market share leader in discrete GPUs worldwide with 73% of the market.
Quick highlights of the report
- AMD’s overall unit shipments increased 22.6% quarter-to-quarter, Intel’s total shipments increased 0.2% from last quarter, and Nvidia’s decreased -1.9%
- The overall attach rate of GPUs (includes integrated and discrete GPUs) to PCs for the quarter was 130% which was up 1.8% from last quarter
- Discrete GPUs were in 31.9% of PCs, which is down -0.19% from last quarter
- The overall PC market increased by 1.99% quarter-to-quarter and increased by 3.54% year-to-year
- Desktop graphics add-in boards (AIBs) that use discrete GPUs increased 12.17% from last quarter
- Q4'19 saw an increase in tablet shipments from last quarter
Jon Peddie, President of JPR, notes “This is the third consecutive quarter of increased GPU shipments, However, Q1 which is seasonally flat to down may show an unusual dip because of supply chain interruptions from China due to the Coronavirus epidemic. 2020 is going to be a game-changer with Intel’s entry into the discrete GPU market and a possible fourth entry by an IP company.”
A total of 93 million units were shipped in Q4'19 which decreased by one million units from the same quarter a year ago indicating the market is down on a year-to-year basis. However, this is the third quarter in a row of increased GPU shipments incrementally.
