AMD gains market share in GPU market According to Peddie Research, AMD has gained share again in the GPU market.
Year-over-year the company saw its share jump significantly, to 21.9 percent from 20.6 percent quarter-over-quarter.

Intel also gained, from 61.1 percent up to 62 percent.

Both companies gained at the expense of Nvidia, which took a deep dive from 18.3 percent to 16.1 percent thanks to a weak PC market.

Intel and AMD seem to be boosting their share thanks to integrated graphics chips, which have all but killed off the low-end GPU market. Nearly 100 percent of Intel's non-server processors now have integrated graphics, and two-thirds of AMD's do.

Overall, PC GPU shipments fell 6.8 percent for the quarter.

This isn't necessarily all bad news for nvidia. I dont think these stats include info about mobile devices and that's where their focus is shifting.
So AMD has the new consoles intel has the everyday PC market and nvidia had a strong presence in the mobile sphere.


XXYYQQOO!!! Yeah WELCOME TO JAMROCK

Yeah...I was surprised I *STILL* had to downgrade one of my AMD dlls to keep Skyrim from locking up my daughter's computer with a black screen of death (I gave her my 6950 and installed current drivers). This game is how popular? How old? Come on, AMD.

Congrats to AMD. I have a Radeon 6970 that runs everything I throw at it without a problem; in hi-res. Skyrim, Witcher 2,SWTOR,Splinter Cell Blacklist...no problems.
