According to the latest report by Jon Peddie Research, AMD is doing well in the PC graphics market. Nvidia was defeated for the first time since 2014.
Jon Peddie Research has just released its sales figures for GPUs used by PC computers. The period under review is the second quarter of 2019. The market is bleak because if we see a slight increase of 0.6% in this quarter, demand is 10% lower than in the same period last year.
AMD achieved +9.8% growth in deliveries. Nvidia’s revenue remained unchanged, while Intel recorded a slight decline of 1.4%.
Jon Peddie Research adds:
“Despite uncertainty in the laptop supply chain, there has been a record number of announcements of new laptops and systems with amazing specifications in terms of performance, battery life and screen resolution.”
It should be noted that total graphic deliveries in the second quarter are generally down on the previous quarter.
GPU sales, a great success for AMD’s Ryzen processors
Although the study doesn’t explain it, AMD’s performance is probably related to the arrival of many notebooks equipped with a processor supported by a Vega iGPU. It cannot be ruled out that this momentum will continue in the coming months. AMD has just launched new gaming graphics cards, the Radeon RX Navi, while the Ryzen 3000 mobile processors will gradually conquer the market.
Finally, it should be noted that Nvidia remains sacrosanct in the field of gaming graphics cards. According to Steam’s July 2019 hardware and software survey, the company has a 75% market share compared to 14% at AMD.
