Graphics card shipments fall 15.2% in Q2, NVIDIA keeps top spot

Published: Aug 23rd 2011, 06:21 GMT

According to an analysis made by Jon Peddie Research, the graphics card market has suffered in Q2 both because of the rise of processors with integrated graphics and because of tough economic times. This setting mean that card shipments reached just 16.1 million units, down from 19 million in Q1.

This significant, 15.2% sequential fall in shipments didn’t affect the position of main players NVIDIA and AMD who pretty much maintained their share – NVIDIA slipped just a bit to 59% (its market share was 59.1% in Q1), while AMD crawled up to 40.6% (up from 40.5% in the previous quarter). Other manufacturers, like Matrox and S3, grabbed 0.4% of the market.

Jon Peddie Research expects the graphics card market to top $13.8 billion in sales this year, down 33% over 2010.
