Last week we had a peek at the overall GPU market, including APUs, and the news was not great. This week Jon Peddie released details on the discrete GPU market, which also saw contractions. When you look at this quarter versus last quarter, sales dropped by 28% and are down 5.7% from this time last year, similar to the trend we saw with the total market. If you look back over time Q2 tends to be a bad quarter for GPU sales and the current market is actually larger in total volume than two years ago, before the mining craze was fully underway.
You can see the details of AMD and NVIDIA's quarter below.
The market shares for the desktop discrete GPU suppliers shifted in the quarter, Nvidia increased market share from last quarter, while AMD enjoyed an increase in share year-to-year."
