Jon Peddie Research (JPR) has released the details of its report with regard to the estimated graphics chip shipments and suppliers' market share for 2Q13. QoQ, AMD's overall unit shipments increased 10.9 per cent, Intel increased 6.2 per cent and Nvidia decreased by eight per cent. Although YoY results have been disappointing YoY, QoQ movement has been somewhat positive.

The overall PC market declined 2.5 per cent QoQ while the graphics market increased 4.6 per cent. Overall this net 7.1 per cent increase reflects an interest on the part of consumers for double-attachthe adding of a discrete GPU to a system with integrated processor graphics, and to a lesser extent dual AIBs in performance desktop machines.

On a YoY basis, the market analytics firm found that total graphics shipments during Q2 dropped 6.8 per cent while PC shipments declined at a faster rate at 11.2 per cent overall. GPUs are traditionally a leading indicator of the market, since a GPU goes into every system before it is shipped and most of the PC vendors are guiding down to flat for Q3.

The popularity of tablets and the persistent economic slowness are the most often mentioned reasons for the decline in the PC market and the CAGR for PC graphics from 2012 to 2016 is -1.4 per cent. JPR expects that the total shipments of graphics chips in 2016 will approach 319 million units.

The ten-year average change for graphics shipments for QoQ is a growth of 7.2 per cent. This quarter is below the average with a 4.6 per cent increase.
