Nvidia Is Closing the Gap for the Number One Position in Graphics, AMD Loses Ground and Intel is Flat, Overall Market Was up 3% Bucking Seasonal Trend
Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry’s leading research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, today announced estimated graphics shipments and supplier market share for the second calendar quarter of 2007. The results for the quarter results are available in the Q2 2007 edition of Jon Peddie’s First Look, the firm’s quarterly graphics survey. JPR’s companion report, Market Watch, provides an in-depth look at the PC graphics market and includes unit shipment and segment market share data, trend analysis, shipment forecasts, and profiles of major suppliers.
Traditionally, the second quarter is slow for the computer industry. Nevertheless Q2’07 saw Nvidia make significant grains, while AMD and Intel saw more typical results for the time period. VIA saw a slight rise, SiS slipped more, and Matrox dropped too.
Total shipments for the quarter were 81.3 million units, up 3% in over last quarter. Compared to the same quarter last year shipments were up 8.2%.
On the desktop Nvidia was the clear winner, claiming 43% against Intel’s 38.5%, while AMD had a modest gain to 23%
In the mobile market Intel held its dominant position and grew slightly to 51.5%, with Nvidia number two at 27% and AMD at 21%.
Mobile chips continued their growth to claim 31.2% of the market with 24.5 million units.
