Default AMD, NVIDIA, continue to lose graphics share to Intel


Jon Peddie Research has compiled their first round of MarketWatch reports for Q4'09, and according to their research, the numbers look good for Intel. Fueled by strong sales of Atom netbooks, and "strong growth" in the desktop PC segment, Intel's share grew from 53.6% of the market in Q3'09 to 55.2% in Q4.
JPR says that AMD gained share in the notebook IGP segment, but actually lost share in both the desktop and notebook GPU segments. Keep in mind that AMD just shipped their latest Radeon 5000 series cards in Q4. AMD says they've shipped 2 million DX11 GPUs -- apparently that wasn't enough to hold off NVIDIA though, as JPR says NVIDIA "picked up a little share overall. Nvidia's increases came primarily in desktop discretes, while slipping in desktop and notebook integrated."
So basically NVIDIA managed to grab some share from AMD in the discrete graphics card market thanks to the 40-nm Radeon shortages from last year. NVIDIA slipped a little in IGP though. This downward trend will likely continue as Intel ramps up Clarkdale and Pine Trail, while AMD will introduce their 8-series IGPs soon. NVIDIA's focus will shift to tablets, cell phones, and other portable devices like Zune HD instead.
NVIDIA's overall GPU share for Q4 came in at 24.3% (down from 25.3% in Q3'09) while AMD finished third with 19.9% (down from 20.1% in Q3'09).
