This time last year, NVIDIA had over 80% of the GPU market - but things have changed in the last 12 months. AMD launched their successful Radeon RX 400 series graphics cards, powered by Polaris - while NVIDIA launched an onslaught of GTX 10 series cards.

AMD was sitting with just 18.8% of the GPU market share last year, but now they've climbed up to 29.1% - while NVIDIA has fallen from 81.1%, down to 70.9%. GFXSpeak reported from Jon Peddie's data: "New market data from Jon Peddie Research shows that graphics add-in board (AIB) sales are on an upward trend. Shipments during the third quarter of 2016 (ending September 30) increased from the second quarter of 2016 by 38.2%; this is considerably above the ten-year average of 14.3%. On a year-over-year basis, JPR found total AIB shipments rose 9.2%. By comparison, total shipments of desktop PCs fell 17.1% in the same period".

 

There were also some quick highlights that are worth looking at:

 

  • AMD's overall unit shipments increased 15.38% quarter-to-quarter, Intel's total shipments increased 17.70% from last quarter, and NVIDIA's increased 39.31%.
  • The attach rate of GPUs (includes integrated and discrete GPUs) to PCs for the quarter was 146% which was up 14.96% from last quarter.
  • Discrete GPUs were in 34.84% of PCs, which is up 7.06%.
  • The overall PC market increased 8.09% quarter-to-quarter, and decreased -5.37% year-to-year.
  • Desktop graphics add-in boards (AIBs) that use discrete GPUs increased 38.16% from last quarter.
  • Q3'16 saw a decrease in tablet shipments from last quarter and saw notebook sales out sell tablets for the first time in three years.
