Jon Peddie Research updates us on what happens yearly in the graphics card market. According to its latest report, the global graphics card market unit shipments decreased in Q1 2023 by -38.2%. Approximately 6.3 million add-in boards shipped in Q1-2023.
JPR’s new report is hard to swallow for the big three (Intel, Nvidia, and AMD), who have all seen their market share fluctuate, but this is less relevant when you’re shipping far fewer numbers than last quarter and never mind the previous year for the exact dates.
The data is worrying for the Big Three, and they are because they can begin to think that the future is in the AI sector compared to the gaming sector, even though the oldest of the three says otherwise.
It may be a bad run due to a wrong approach, but what is certain is that users are punishing everyone equally, and the economic situation is not helping.
According to the graph, in the same period last year, AMD had twice the share of this year (24% vs. 12%), which tells us that, compared to Q4 2022, the RTX 30s were much more accepted and purchased than the RX 6000.
Also, as we can see, Arc is selling better because of its reasonable price. Intel managed to double its share, from 2% to 4% in a single quarter, which, although not spotlighted in the global context, is something to consider.
While selling considerably fewer units, the RTX 40s sells at the same percentage rate as the RTX 30s, demonstrating NVIDIA’s continued market dominance.
The report concludes that only Intel has been able to scratch that 2% from NVIDIA, Team Red has not succeeded, and Team Green continues with almost a total monopoly on gaming graphics cards with its Top-of-the-line graphics card RTX 40.
