ATI's losses were less serious on the desktop overall, although the red team's share did go down from 26.3% to 22%. Nvidia, by contrast, grew its share just over one point to 25%. In the market for discrete desktop graphics cards, which doesn't include integrated graphics chipsets, ATI lost around five points dropping to 43%, while Nvidia climbed from 51.5% to 57%. Jon Peddie Research reckons ATI's poor performance might have something to do with the recently-completed merger with AMD. Of course, the red team already lost ground to Nvidia in the second quarter, long before the merger was announced in late July.
