Nvidia just swiped a little chunk of AMD's market share

Numbers o'clock in the GPU market: the biggest manufacturers have spooled out a reel of sales figures describing the current landscape. Overall shipments of graphics cards are down 3.4%, with desktop GPUs falling 2.7% and notebooks tumbling 3.9%.

Interestingly however, Nvidia have made gains where AMD have slipped.

Nvidia have enjoyed gains of 3% from last quarter, while rivals AMD have seen shipments falling sharply by 7%. The graphics chip market is of particular interest as it reliably and broadly follows the fortunes of PC gaming, and is one of the leading indicators of the health of the PC market.

That leaves the market share in the graphics chip manufacturing sector looking a little shaken up. Nvidia now command a 15% share, with AMD falling to 13.6%. The remaining share is gobbled up by Intel, whose integrated processors are fairly ubiquitous things.

Jon Peddie has the full report, which goes into the some more detail on the numbers.

Does not seem like a good thing. Nvidia already has too much of the market.... AMD needs to have some for competition.

but the same is true of Intel, but due to it instead of trying to fight AMD seems to have more or less just given up on the high end market and really that is a very bad thing, I really hope they don't go the same way with graphics as without competition the customer just gets screwed over.

.

to me AMD just needs to get some new management who actually want to fight and push to actually win back the market share, instead of the management now that seems to be willing to just let AMD slip into obscurity and low end devices.

.

I can remember a time when I would put nothing but AMD CPU's in PC's now unless you are going dirt cheap and want an APU there is just little reason to use a AMD CPU and with the release of the Nvidia 900 line unless AMD comes out with something soon they will get left behind on graphics as well.

.

the only real hope is they are using the guaranteed income from the consoles to take time away from having to release new products so they can actually get a good battle plan together and come back in a year or 2 that will blow everyone away and put them back in the position they should be.
