NVIDIA had growth rate of 42.3% over prior year

Overall GPU market is up an impressive 17% where notebooks are leading the way. AMD saw mixed results while Intel maintained its number one status


Jon Peddie Research has released its fourth quarter 2007 market report on GPU’s (graphics processing units). The industry’s leading research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia announced estimated graphics shipments and supplier market share for the fourth calendar quarter of 2007. The holiday quarter is historically a strong quarter for GPU shipments and this year saw the largest quarter-to-quarter jump in the last six years.

“The fourth quarter of 2007 was seasonally good, and saw significantly greater sequential growth from the 3rd quarter compared to last year. This is especially interesting since Q3 2007 was so good,” said Dr. Jon Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Research in Tiburon, California. “The major growth in the desktop segments was for Mainstream and Value class add-in boards (AIBs) as is typical for the holiday period.”

In the notebook segment Intel held the top spot with 47% of the market while AMD took back the number two position at 29% (gaining 8.3% market share). Nvidia was third at 22.8%.

On the desktop Intel and Nvidia are essentially locked in a battle for first place at 37% share each. However, GPU growth on the desktop was only 8.3% compared to notebook GPU growth at 35.7%.

Jon Peddie Research says quarter 1, 2008 will be an interesting quarter to watch as AMD’s ATi unit and Nvidia will both release new higher power AIBs (add-in boards) for the “enthusiast” sector.
