We are days out from NVIDIA's huge GeForce RTX 30 reveal event on September 1, with Jon Peddie Research detailing the latest GPU vendor market share, and discrete GPU market share numbers.
As you can see from JPR's new data, NVIDIA only secured more market share in the last 12 months -- where it had 71% of the discrete GPU market, and now have 80% of the discrete GPU market. AMD may have launched its RDNA-powered Radeon RX 5000 series cards in that time, but they've been bleeding market share ever since.
Back in Q2 2019, AMD had 29% of the discrete GPU market share while NVIDIA had 71% -- but the end of 2019 and first half of 2020 weren't good for AMD Radeon discrete market share. NVIDIA has just continued to take more and more, and we're about to head into next-gen GPUs... will these numbers change in 3-6-12 months?
I'm looking forward to seeing if, and how it does change.
Quick highlight from JPR:
- AMD's overall unit shipments increased by 8.4% quarter-to-quarter, Intel's total shipments decreased by -2.7% from last quarter, and NVIDIA's increased by 17.8%.
- The overall attach rate of GPUs (includes integrated and discrete GPUs, desktop, notebook, and workstations) to PCs for the quarter was 126% which was up by 2.3% from last quarter.
- The overall PC market increased by 0.68% quarter-to-quarter and increased by 12.54% year-to-year.
- Desktop graphics add-in boards (AIBs that use discrete GPUs) increased by 6.55% from last quarter.
- Q2'20 saw no change in tablet shipments from last quarter.
