Taking into account APU, AMD’s last quarter (Q4 Q4) GPU shipments surpassed NVIDIA’s. The figure comes from Jon Peddie Research, which reported 93 million GPa shipments across the PC market in the fourth quarter of last year, up 3.4 percentage points from a year earlier, the third consecutive quarter. But that was down 1 million, or about 1.3 percentage points, from a year earlier.
Specifically to manufacturers, AMD shipments increased by 22.6% month-on-month, share 19%, NVIDIA decreased by 1.9%, share 18%, Intel edged up 0.2%, share 63%. NVIDIA has no advantage because the calculations include Intel nuclear display and APU.
Back in terms of dominion, AMD shipments accounted for 27%, up from 24% in the previous quarter and 26% last year, but NVIDIA still monopolized the remaining market with 73%. This year, intel Xe architecture will be unveiled, and it is not known how this will change the landscape.
On the other side of the data, the adoption rate in PCs fell by 0.19 percentage points to 31.9 per cent.
However, JPR’s president said GPU shipments would remain stable or decline in the first quarter of this year, taking into account factors such as the impact of the outbreak on the supply chain.
