AMD GPU Shipment Soars by 96.3% in First Quarter

According to the Jon Peddie Research, shipments of PC graphics for the first quarter of 2010 increased by 44.3% over the last year.

The GPU market share of AMD and NVIDIA have both increased, especially the latter one which showed 96.3% improvements, while that of Intel decreased slightly. However Intel remained the overall winer in unit shipments, thanks to the sales of Clarksdale and Atom.

The quarter also saw the first shipments of integrated processor graphics (IPG), that is to say CPUs with integrated or embedded graphics. JPR predicts we’ll see a sharp decline in sales for chipset graphics.

    The last column refers to Year over Year growth, wich means growth of Q1 2010 compared to Q1 2009, even though the third column shows Q4 2009.

    You don’t need to be an economist to realise that the analysis is totally flawed!
    The chart is mis-titled, if there was growth then column 2 should be q1 2009 and column 4 should read q1 2010 (using Razvan point).

    So the real growth is 18% overall.

    AMD had 7% growth in units shipped and 2% reduction in market share.
    Intel had 39% growth in units shipped and a 8% increase in market share.
    Nvidia had a 1% reduction in units shipped and 5% reduction in market share.

    Now if I was paying $3,500 a year for market analysis I would expect to get good data and correct analysis that even a high school student could do.

    What ever happened to a basic appreciation of numbers. Maybe the analyst still uses a pentium processor with a FDIV bug…

    Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.|
