Nvidia strengthens its position as market leader for PC video cards by reaching 80% of the shares at the expense of AMD and Intel.
The analysis of the company Jon Peddie Research on the market of video cards for PC paints a picture clearly in favor of Nvidia, which holds 80% of the market share against 20% left to the competition, and this within a particularly negative second quarter of fiscal year 2022.
According to analysts, Q2 of 2022 saw a 22.6% drop in shipments and sales of new discrete PC GPUs, in a generally negative quarter for hardware sales. However, even within this rather obscure landscape, Nvidia has seen its market shares rise from 75% to 80%.
This is a return to the position of power already seen at the beginning of 2021, with AMD having consequently instead seen a decline in its situation from 24% to 20% of the GPU market, while Intel is still practically too small in this. sector in order to have its say, remaining around 1%.
The decrease in sales recorded for the quarter in question is the strongest among those recorded on average in the last 10 years.
AMD’s distribution of desktop hardware units decreased 34% from the previous quarter and 5% from the previous year, while Nvidia hardware distribution fell by 19% from the previous quarter and increased by 3% compared to the previous year.
Nvidia maintains and strengthens its dominant position in the PC discrete GPU market in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 by reaching 80% market share, bringing it closer to full-fledged dominance, pending the launch of the cards new generation with the RTX 40 on one side, which should be presented on September 20, and the RX 7000 RDNA 3 on the other.
