Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry's research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, announced estimated graphics chip shipments and suppliers' market share for 2014 1Q. For the previous three quarters, the PC graphics market has gone up. This was the first quarter to show a decrease in shipments since last. Shipments were down 11.6% quarter-to-quarter, and down 4% compared to the same quarter last year.

First AMD releases a congratulatory article saying they've driven GPU pricing down to the MSRP pricing. Next, an article is released saying GPU shipments are down. Anyone else seeing the simple math here?


I like AMD, but asking for praise while experiencing a dip in sales is a bit sad.

What most folks don't understand is Intel's sales are from chips with integrated graphics, i.e. APUs only where as AMD and Nvidia are AIBs and also via APUs for AMD. People buying many of the Intel APUs are not using the IG, they just want the CPU.

And this would mean that we should dismiss or ignore these statistics because they are not representative of customers' real needs and wants. ;)

The vast majority of processor sales are attributed to OEMS which in tern equate to whole computer sales. While it is true that many people buy computer components and build their own or upgrade components like the processor this is not how the bulk of processors or sold.

So in the larger scheme of whole PC sales (desktop / mobile) much like tablet x86 / x64 PC sales people use whatever the system comes with and many don't consider it an Intel APU sale or even necessarily care all that much about the graphics. Many people are using Intel graphics and may not necessarily even know it any more then they could tell you about the graphics subsystem of their ARM based smart phone or tablet.

Perhaps you should read my reply, and the article that the OP posted.

They've broken down the relationship between APU, IGPU, and discrete graphics cards. None of this is rocket science, given that it is all already listed.

My comment was based on the following link: http://www.techpowerup.com/200865/amd-radeon-r9-series-prices-cool-down.html

AMD has patted themselves on the back for decreasing the sales price of discrete GPUs. They fail to mention the flagging sales figures, the bust of the crypto-currency markets, or even their ability to finally manufacture to demand. My point was that AMD is bragging about their accomplishment, while the industry is experiencing a regular down-turn in sales. Patting ones self on the back during this seems to be a bit arrogant or misguided.

I hope you realize that Most laptops are Intel CPUs. Of those, most do not come with discrete graphics. Conclusively, you can say most Intel graphics are utilized to their full extent.

That doesn't mean Intel's graphics is worth anything.
