    AMD's share of the global GPU market is rising after the company launched its new Radeon R9 and Radeon R7 lines of discrete GPUs, and is expected to reach 40 percent over the next six months, according to sources associated with graphics card manufacturers based in Taiwan. In its recently announced Q3-2013 quarterly results, AMD announced net profits of $48 million, despite drops in revenues from notebook-related shipments, but revenues from customized products (custom-design graphics cards, etc,) and stable desktop (OEM) shipments helped the company turn a profit. Market analysts expect shipments of graphics cards to help sustain the company's growth in Q4, although some of them are conservative with their estimates.

    This number seems unachievable. Look at this chart from Jon Peddie research in August:

    AMD would essentially have to double its market share in 6 months. There has to be some trickery going on here.

    Edit: for those who didn't realize, the chart is a clickable link to the original article.

    I believe it is singularly GPU's. Bta, can you give us specifics on what this market share details? GPUs plus consoles?

    I for one would be glad for AMD to get more market share, I never really knew why NVidia had more market share in the first place.
    Vario says thanks.

    System builders that offer only nvidia gpu's like Apple did at one point. Others that offer low end stuff GTX 640 and rake in the money.

    Not much info

    What is the current market share? Integrated graphics included? Who is this unnamed source? Weak post...

    It's should be only discrete where NV has over 60% share.

    That 21.9% I quoted includes integrated graphics. I think the only way they can get 40% is by counting console SoCs as graphics shipments.

    The question I have is do the number of consoles even matter for AMD's profit? I thought Sony and Microsoft just paid a large one time fee to use AMD's core design and AMD makes no royalties per console sold.

    I don't see anything about 40% market share in six months in the "research" company's press release, unless it's in their $2,500 excel "research" they are peddling. :rolleyes:

    Plus the pr states "shipments" not "sales." I think its stock price spin and nothing more. I'll wait to see Amd's next quarterly statements to see actual sales figures.

    True enough, although at 38% (last quarter) they aren't far off in any case. AMD have been hovering around 40% since Nvidia began shipping the G80 in volume (or conversely when AMD missed with R600).

    Are these OEM, retail or both? Desktop only or desktop + mobile?
    Do you maybe have a link to the source with more info?

    Discrete add-in desktop ( no IGP, MXM modules) but includes OEM, and professional cards.
    I'd love to be able to give you a one-stop-shop, but there is a paywall in effect for Mercury and JPR. I correlated the later figures from press releases. The historical figures are available at Mersury - at least they were (mostly as pdf -see screencap below). The best I could do is give you a raft of links and print magazine links that I used to research a history of the desktop GPU I put together last year. 3D graphics market share figures for 1995-2005 are sporadic at best, but the most consistent reporting I found was in the business section of the New York Times, Business Week, and the InfoWorld archive.
