Integrated GPUs will have a compound annual growth rate of 2.5% during 2022–2026 and reach an installed base of 4.8 billion units at the end of the forecast period. Over the next five years, the penetration of iGPUs in the PC will grow to reach a level of 98%.

Year to year, total CPU shipments, which include all platforms and all types of CPUs (with and without graphics), decreased by -23%, desktop CPUs decreased by -25%, and notebooks decreased by -22%.

AMD’s overall client CPU market share percentage from last quarter decreased -5.3%, while Intel’s market share increased by 23%.

Jon Peddie, president of JPR, noted, “Q2’s increase in client CPU shipments from last quarter is positive and welcomed news in what has been depressing results for that quarter as well as for the last two years. Integrated graphics also increased from last quarter, which is not too remarkable given most CPUs have built-in GPUs. The forecast for next quarter is a cautionary positive. AMD and Intel are guiding upward, albeit modestly.
