Nvidia takes the lead in the Discrete Notebook graphics market
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
After a reasonably long period of AMD dominance in the Discrete Notebook graphics market Nvidia have finally come out on top. Note the “discrete” market refers to non-integrated solutions, so Intel are not a player here since they only offer Integrated graphics solutions such as the Intel GMA HD graphics. The only two competitors here are AMD (formerly ATi) and Nvidia. Nvidia in quarter two of this year managed to gain a significant 8.9% percent gain in the market taking it into a narrow lead.
- Nvidia 50.6% Up 8.9%
- AMD 49.4% Down 8.9%
Although Nvidia only has a narrow lead analysts expect this to grow as Nvidia’s latest mobile GPUs become established such as the GTX 560M, GTX 570M and GTX 580M. MSI, ASUS and Clevo laptops will all feature a lot of Nvidia GPUs in the coming months so expect Nvidia’s position to strengthen.
