As part of its ongoing research on the PC graphics market, Jon Peddie Research (JPR) has completed its Market Watch report for the first quarter of 2020. Before 2020, the PC market was showing signs of stabilizing into a new normal. JPR’s Market Watch report confirms that trend, for this very unusual year.
The three major players in the PC GPU market are AMD, Intel, and Nvidia. Overall GPU shipments decreased -5.3% from last quarter, AMD shipments decreased -16.6% Nvidia decreased -13.6% and Intel's shipments, increased 0.5%.
JPR continuously tracks market share for the PC GPU suppliers to create a picture of the competitive landscape. (More detail is provided in JPR’s Add-in-Board Report). AMD's market share from last quarter decreased -2.3%, Intel's increased 3.8%, and Nvidia's market share decreased -1.58%, as indicated in the chart above.
Jon Peddie, President of JPR, notes “COVID-19 has been disruptive and had varying effects on the market. Some sales that might have occurred in Q3 (such as notebooks for the back-to-school season) have been pulled in to Q1 and probably will continue to sell well in Q2. That will unbalance the seasonality usually seen but not have a major impact on the overall sales for the year.
