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.
