According to a report by tech website Tom’s Hardware, there has been a significant rise in value and product volume in the discrete graphics card market over the past year, favoring consumers.
The article says that discrete graphics card shipments from AIB partners surged, with John Peddie Research reporting a 32.2% year-over-year increase in overall shipments from Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) and Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD).
While shipments rose, AIB market value fell from $12.4 billion down to just $8.6 billion due to lower GPU prices.
In addition, the market share between AMD and Nvidia is also said to have changed during the past year.
“In Q1 of 2021 AMD had a 20% market share in the discrete GPU market, with Nvidia at 80%. In Q1 of 2022, market share shifted towards AMD a little bit, with AMD now at 24% market share and Nvidia at 75%,” wrote Tom’s Hardware journalist Aaron Klotz.
While the change isn’t significant, it is a win for AMD as the company has struggled to gain a share of the GPU market front for years.
