John Peddie Research has come up with its latest round of market-share figures covering the discrete graphics card market. The numbers are based on total shipments for the first quarter of 2011, and you can find all the relevant percentages below.
|Q1 2010||Q4 2010||Q1 2011|
AMD's upward trend continues, with the firm's share of the discrete graphics market increasing by just under two percentage points from the fourth quarter of last year. That represents close to a six-point increase from the first quarter of 2010.
As one might expect, rising Radeon shipments have shaved Nvidia's slice of the pie. The green team is still responsible for the lion's share of shipments with 59% of the market, though. Other players account for less than 0.5% and might as well not be there at all. Keep in mind that these numbers only pertain to discrete graphics cards, which is why you don't see Intel listed in the chart above. JPR published results for combined discrete and integrated graphics shipments earlier this month.
