Looking at the numbers, Intel had a great quarter. Their market share went up 2.9 percent, likely due to Ivy Bridge shipments. They shipped 7.8 percent more units this quarter than last. It would appear that all of this positive for Intel was at the cost of AMD. AMD's market share declined by 2.5% and they saw decreased shipments of 7.5 percent.


NVIDIA, still riding the success of Kepler saw improved numbers as well. They shipped 0.4 percent more units this quarter than last, however, their market share is down 0.4 percent. The late introduction of (and still lack of product) in the lower end has likely been a contributing factor to this as these are the products which sell in high numbers.
