NVIDIA gains 88% market share, AMD now with 8% followed by Intel with 4%

Jon Peddie Research (JPR) has published the complete GPU Market Share Report Q3 2022 covering AMD, Intel and NVIDIA GPUs. While we reported the entire Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) market share report a few days ago, today, we’ll be talking specifically about the discrete GPU numbers which are just as grim as the full PC share report.

Despite dwindling GPU shipments, NVIDIA is gaining discrete GPU market share big time while AMD is falling behind single-digit numbers

During the third quarter of 2022, total PC GPU shipments decreased by -25.1% (YoY), with desktop graphics seeing a decline of -15.43% and laptop graphics seeing a decline of -30%. This has been described as “the biggest drop since the 2009 record” by John Bede himself. More on overall GPU market share here.

So to get to the discrete GPU market share numbers, the report tells us that dGPU shipments are down to 14 million units versus 24 million units a year earlier. That’s a drop of -41.6% which is pretty massive if you consider that Q3 is typically the strongest quarter of growth for PCs. During the quarter, NVIDIA managed to push its market share to 88%, which was a record high followed by AMD whose market share fell to single-digit numbers of just 8%. Intel managed more or less to hold its 4% share, seeing a 1% decline from the previous quarter but a solid gain of 4-5% year over year.

The market saw GPU shipments skyrocket for a brief two-year period, all thanks to the crypto craze, but has been in decline since then. Currently, the number is down before 100 million units were shipped and doing a breakdown, we can see that all sectors are mostly down. The separate shipments of desktop and laptop computers had a landslide while the combined side of desktop and laptop remained flat and in line with previous years.

If you look at the desktop and laptop GPU share stats, desktop performance was slightly better with a slight increase in shipments from 26 million in the previous quarter to 28 million this quarter. The notebook side saw the largest decline from 58 million last quarter and 48 million shipments this quarter.

Once again, the desktop discrete GPU market fell to just 7 million units from 10 million in the previous quarter and 13 million in the prior year. Meanwhile, desktop integrated GPU shipments increased from 15% (Q/Q) and 20% (Y/Y) to 21 million in the third quarter of 2022. As of now, shipments of PC iGPUs total about 62 million units while total dGPU PC shipments are around 14 million units.

AMD and NVIDIA are both trying to clear out their last generation GPU stocks to make room for the next generation of GPUs. While NVIDIA launched two next-generation products, the GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080, they’re positioned in the ultra-enthusiast category with prices in excess of $1,200. We learned that the green team has shipped over 150,000 RTX 40 GPUs to date and that one of the two GPUs didn’t fare well with the crowd. The company is still trying to get rid of older RTX 30 series stock by revamping the mainstream 3060 and 3070 series cards with slightly better specs and promotions since the flagship 40 Series cards are a few months away from now.

On the other hand, AMD has been doing the same thing, but the ASP of NVIDIA cards is simply much higher than Radeon’s options at the moment. The company is also on the cusp of releasing its next generation Radeon RX 7000 series cards which are expected to offer better value than NVIDIA’s high-end offerings but that remains to be seen. On the other hand, Intel has just launched its high-end Arc lineup for desktop PCs and will do the same for laptops soon. Raja Koduri said they want to get Arc into millions of computers every year, but Arc’s first year hasn’t gone so smoothly. However, getting 4-5% share in one year is a good move for the newly formed graphics division.
