The latest discrete graphics market share report for the fourth quarter of 2019 has been published by Jon Peddie Research, showing a huge surge in AMD Radeon GPU market share versus NVIDIA’s GeForce GPUs.
AMD Radeon GPUs Gained Big in Q4 2019 Versus NVIDIA GeForce GPUs – JPR AIB / Discrete GPU Market Share Report
It looks like AMD Radeon managed to ship more AIB units in the previous quarter (Q4 2019) versus NVIDIA’s GeForce GPUs. We already saw a glimpse of this a few days ago in the overall GPU market report which revealed that AMD GPU shipments surged by 22.6% in Q4 2019 while NVIDIA GeForce was down 1.9% in the same quarter.
According to the report, over $3.9 Billion dollars of AIBs shipped in Q4 2019 with AMD leading the shipments. Compared to the previous quarter (Q3 2019), AIB shipments increased by 12.2% and compared to the previous year (Q4 2018), AIB shipments increased by 33.4%. The report states that the AIB market hit $16.1 billion last year and is expected to hit $16.3 billion by 2023. A total of 1303 million AIBs have been shipped since 1981. The fourth quarter is stated to be normally flat but it saw an unusual surge this year which is above the ten-year average of -2.3%.
Coming to the discrete GPU market share, AMD Radeon GPUs rose their share from 27.08% in Q3 to 31.08% in Q4 2019. NVIDIA GeForce GPUs fell from 72.92% to 68.92%. NVIDIA still has a higher market share versus AMD and compared to its Q2 2019 position (67.92%), it still holds a very large chunk of market share.
On a year-to-year basis, we found that total AIB shipments during the quarter rose 6.2%, which is greater than desktop PCs, which fell -15.9% from the same quarter a year ago.
Overall, AIB shipments had been declining slightly, but not as much as the PC thanks to gamers upgrading their systems.
A lot of things…
