NVIDIA Increased GPU Market Share in Q3 2016

Whenever the GPU market share figures are released, it’s a cogent way of judging both AMD and NVIDIA’s ability to unleash popular products. Of course, the numbers are analysed and predictions can be made in the short and long term. The latest report from Jon Peddie Research charts the market share for Desktop PCs and AIBs during Q3 2016. As you can see from the data below, NVIDIA improved their market share from 70% in the last quarter to 70.9%. In contrast to this, AMD experienced a drop from 29.9% to 29.1%. It’s important to note, that AMD’s yearly share has increased from 18.8% to 29.1% while NVIDIA went from 81.1% to 70.9%. This is thanks to AMD’s new Polaris range which targets the mainstream user.

Also, the report goes on to say that AIB shipments increased by 38.2% versus the last quarter and 9.2% year-to-year. Despite the desktop being in decline, PC gaming continues to flourish and shows no sign of slowing down. Additionally, once Kaby Lake and Zen arrive, consumers should be tempted to either invest in a new system or update their existing hardware configuration. In terms of NVIDIA regaining some market share, this isn’t a shocking turn of events due to Pascal’s strong performance. The next quarter will be interesting, especially with rumours circulating about the GTX 1080 Ti, and the RX 490.
