AMD GPU Market Share On The Rise Again, 29.1%
It seems that after having a tough previous year AMD is picking up the pace in 2016. Previously AMD GPU market share was 18.8% but this has increased significantly and as of right now AMD GPU market share is 29.1%.
This time last year Nvidia dominated the GPU market and had a market share of 80% but a lot has changed in the following 12 months. We got the RX 400 series GPUs from team red and the 10 series GPUs from the green team.
Nvidia market share has fallen from 81.1% to 70.9%.
“New market data from Jon Peddie Research shows that graphics add-in board (AIB) sales are on an upward trend. Shipments during the third quarter of 2016 (ending September 30) increased from the second quarter of 2016 by 38.2%; this is considerably above the ten-year average of 14.3%. On a year-over-year basis, JPR found total AIB shipments rose 9.2%. By comparison, total shipments of desktop PCs fell 17.1% in the same period”.
Following are the highlights of what has happened in the last 12 months in regards to AMD GPU market share:
- AMD’s overall unit shipments increased 15.38% quarter-to-quarter, Intel’s total shipments increased 17.70% from last quarter, and NVIDIA’s increased 39.31%.
- The attach rate of GPUs (includes integrated and discrete GPUs) to PCs for the quarter was 146% which was up 14.96% from last quarter.
- Discrete GPUs were in 34.84% of PCs, which is up 7.06%. The overall PC market increased 8.09% quarter-to-quarter and decreased -5.37% year-to-year.
- Desktop graphics add-in boards (AIBs) that use discrete GPUs increased 38.16% from last quarter.
- Q3’16 saw a decrease in tablet shipments from last quarter and saw notebook sales out sell tablets for the first time in three years.
AMD GPU market share is on the rise and we might see this trend stay that way with the introduction of the new Vega architecture and the upcoming RX 490 and the dragon fire GPU. What do you make of this in AMD GPU market share?
