Nvidia could take 20% of Intel's integrated GPU market

By Justin Mann on October 27, 2008, 7:20 PM
Nvidia’s most recent mobile chipsets are expected to cause quite a stir in the integrated GPU market, with some estimating that the 9400M could be a serious threat to Intel's current dominance. At the very least Nvidia is hopeful, and some notebook vendors believe it could end up taking a 20% share of the market. That's specific to platforms based on Intel CPUs, as AMD has a bigger advantage on platforms using their chipsets.

The lower cost and higher performance of Nvidia's mobile GPUs is a huge selling point, and the much better power consumption of newer discrete cards is playing a part as well. The GeForce 9400M has been identified in particular as a chip where the power consumption, performance and price have certainly one-upped Intel's GMA offerings.

This is good look for Nvidia. Despite some their more "questionable" business practices I still consider them the spiritual inheritors of 3dfx. As such they're not all bad as 3dfx was my favorite technology company.
