Graphics card shipments up sequentially in Q1, Nvidia still in front
Written by Cristian, 10 May 2011 - 17:09
Jon Peddie Research is reporting that in the first quarter of this year some 19.03 million discrete graphics cards have been shipped worldwide. This preliminary number represents a 0.2% increase over the 18.84 million recorder in Q4 2010 but is not higher than that of Q1 2010.
This past quarter Nvidia was once again in front, having a 59.12% market share, but the company actually lost ground both sequentially (60.77% in Q4) and on-year (64.50% in Q1 2010), leaving arch-rival AMD to increase pace and grow to 40.46%.
Jon Peddie Research expects the graphics add-in board market to top $19.8 billion in sales this year, down 4.5% compared to 2010, due to falling ASP (average selling price).
