Jon Peddie Research has released its latest report on the graphics market, announcing that combined discrete and integrated GPU shipments in Q4 2012 dropped 8.2% sequentially and 11.5% on a year-to-year basis. The underwhelming results were largely blamed on the popularity of tablets and the persistent recession, causing JPR to revise its compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for PC graphics from 2012 to 2016 to 3.2%, with the total shipments of graphics chips in 2016 expected to be 549 million units.
It was a disappointing quarter for every one of the major players. Intel’s shipments dropped the least quarter-to-quarter at just 2.9%, while AMD slipped 13.6% and Nvidia was down 16.7%. In terms of market share Intel held on to its dominant position and actually gained 3.4% to 63.4% at the expense of AMD and Nvidia, which dropped 1.2 and 1.73 points respectively to 19.7% and 16.9%.
Jon Peddie notes that the numbers suggest more and more users are finding that embedded graphics, such as those found in Intel's and AMD's processors, are "good enough."
