Enthusiast boards dominate desktop graphics sales

— 8:59 AM on September 25, 2006

Market research firm Jon Peddie Research has put together some interesting numbers that quantify the value of the PC desktop graphics market. According to the firm, the market was worth a total of $5.88 billion in the second quarter of this year. Performance and enthusiast graphics alone represented a whopping 73.4% of that total ($4.32 billion), even though integrated graphics made up most of the shipments—62%, to be exact. The dollar value of the integrated graphics market was much lower, though, adding up to only 8.2% ($482 million) of the total PC desktop graphics market in the second quarter. The rest of the market was split up between mainstream graphics, which made up another 8.2% of the total value, workstation graphics, which accounted for 8.1%, and value graphics, which represented only 2.1%.
