Q4 PC Graphics Shipments in a Slump, Competitors Eat into Intel's Lead

Market research firm Jon Peddie Research gave out PC graphics shipments figures for Q4 2010. PC and related products sales overall were lower than usual in 2010 as the industry saw propagation of ULPCs, netbooks, and tablets propagate, hence PC graphics sales, too, were lower by as much as 7.8% down compared to the same period in 2009. Sales of GPUs and processor-embedded GPUs in Q4 stood at 113 million units, 432.2 million in all of 2010. Intel continues to be the dominant player, though its market share was lowered by competitors AMD and NVIDIA. Intel's market share was lowered in 2010, to 52.5%, from 55.2% in Q3 2010. AMD/ATI is at the second spot with a market share of 24.2% (up, from 23% in Q3); and NVIDIA at the third spot at 22.5% (21% in Q3). Other smaller GPU vendors, VIA and Matrox, stood at 0.8%, and 0.1%, respectively.Source: TechConnect Magazine

Well it's not crap if you just use your computer for browsing, light web gaming, watching movies and whatnot and that's what most people do with their systems.

Well yeah, the i3/i5 integrated GPU's do their job pretty well, but if you considere Atom GPU's, then you're lost. People suffer to watch even 720p videos on YouTube with it.

Well, the newer Intel GPUs can certainly do the job fine, just the old ones which are embarrassing beyond measure.

Well thats not 100% true is it now as it depends on what you want a computer for in the 1st place.

In fact by those numbers intel makes the best GPU's for the highest amount of people.

Yeah really, is why i am typing this on a laptop which takes 250w to use and i can still play some games with it if i wanted watch some netflix movies in 1080 though my HDTV and still be using 170w less to do it.

So ?. i don't need a higher powered GFX card in my laptop just a good CPU and that goes for many people and if i want to play games i'll use my system to do that.

People have different requirements. And IF i wanted to i could of easy enough of gotten a laptop with a 5450 but there is no need for me which goes for so many others too.

I don't need to be gaming at uni collage or work. As long as my main system can do it i am happy there is a time and place for that... Which i am sure a lot of companys think the same way

In the end it was more of a requirement to get a laptop with a 17" screen and a good CPU in it and a HDMI port.

Nor do i - but the fact that i have one is a bonus and thats not just because I can game on it. I can watch 720 & 1080p with no stuttering unlike intels builtin GPUs - that being said though, Im not too sure how the ondie gfx processor on the i3/i5 or the i7 performs compared to the OLD intel GPUs

Of course its not 100% true, but 90% of people have no idea what they want, they buy it couse its cheap.

Well no, intel makes the most of them, there for flooding the market with there GPU's. Go into your local computer store and add up how many there are with intel integrated graphics compared to the competition? I bet there is more intel based ones then any other.

considering how little the video card has to do with HD video playback, perhaps try setting it up?

i can get 720p playback just fine on a 1.6Ghz atm (with HT) and crappy intel 945 video.

and my single core AMD athlon L110@1.5+X1270 can play 1080P using the correct video player

i still think forcing people into the intel IGP is crap on intels part (hence all the antitrust lawsuits) i would prefer a good nvidia IGP or AMD IGP over the intel ones. this is why i have been buying AMD notebooks for a bit now. you get an NV or AMD IGP with them even the cheap ones.

nothing is 'forced'; the reason why a lot of systems use intel IGPs is becuase its simply just cheaper to supply. You get what you pay for and I don't see how intel is in the wrong here... shifting customers away from its own products is not doing business.

Mind you, the fact that you can do limited gaming (i.e. DX8 games) at best is a good thing sometimes; workplaces anyone?
