Graphics Card Market Up Sequentially in Q3, NVIDIA Gains as AMD Slips

According to a new report by Jon Peddie Research, the graphics add-in-board market has seen shipments of 14.5 million units in the third quarter of 2013. The 14.5 million translate into a 3.9% increase compared to Q2 but a steep, 17% fall over Q3 2012. The on-quarter boost is in line with seasonality but is far less than the 10-year average which is 12%.

In Q3 2013 NVIDIA was on top with a market share of 64.5% - up from 62% in Q2 (an up from 64.0% in Q3 2012), while AMD grabbed 35.5% after having 38% of the market in the previous quarter (and 35.7% in Q2 2012). Matrox and S3 were almost non-existent, with 0.0% in the chart.

Obvious Reasons. AMD released their card after the Third quarter ends, while nVIDIA released theirs on the third quarter. Btw S3 and Matrox, you have some nice years, even though there is an ending soon!

The thing with matrox is they don't cater for the commercial market. All their cards are mainy released for industry use so it's no surprise there that they have non existant market share. The industrial market has been shifting for a long time and even AMD and Nvidia have their fingers in that pie. I'd go as far as saying that matrox are non competitive

They can still make the 10000 screens stuff though, something AMD and Nvidia are not bothered with yet.

thats the only edge they have and theyve been doing that for decades. But if you dont need to run 6-10 monitors off the same GPU simultaneously, then its easier just to consider an Nvidia or AMD card.

Obviously some jobs will always require more monitors but since we have 29" screens that can display a lot more stuff due to the higher res then that takes off the need to have multi-monitors unless its really a must have requirement. I've pulled Nvidia Geforce 2 MX's out of computers that have been used for nothing more than CCTV and other mundane tasks.

every year its getting harder and harder for Matrox to compete because while technology moves and progresses forward, They have always stayed more or less the same and they cant keep swimming against the tide. At this stage, even if they did decide to return to the commercial market, it would be such an up hill struggle.

With their product lines, I honestly cannot understand how they can keep themselves afloat. Looking at their online shop, everything just seems to be massively overpriced. Dual-monitor DVi GPU for £259.

It just seems to me like their living off their name - 20-30years back, Matrox used to be a pretty big name within the enterprise arena. But since Nvidia and AMD have grown so much and also expanded into the same enterprise market - theres no room for Matrox
