Nvidia's GPU growth bucked the trend and shipments increased by 8% in the third quarter

JPR (Jon Peddie Research)'s monthly GPU market share report was released, and Nvidia remained ahead of Intel and AMD. According to JPR statistics, the global GPU market reached 101 million units in the third quarter of 2021, and PC CPU shipments increased by 9% year on year. It is estimated that in the next five years, the overall penetration rate of discrete GPUs in PCs will reach 31%, and by the end of 2025, the total number of installations will reach 3.249 billion units.

In terms of GPU market share including all GPUs:

  • AMD's market share increased by 1.4%, and its Q3 share was 18%;
  • Nvidia's market share increased by 4.86%, Q3 share of 20%;
  • Intel's market share dropped sharply by 6.2%, and its Q3 share was 62%.

At the same time, AMD and Intel's overall GPU shipments fell by -11.4% and -25.6%, respectively. On the other hand, Nvidia's GPU shipments increased by 8%. Overall GPU unit shipments fell by 18.2%.

In terms of discrete GPUs, Nvidia has a dominant market share of 83%, while AMD’s is 17% . JPR said that compared to the second quarter, the third quarter was once the strongest, but this year's GPU shortage and the epidemic have severely damaged the GPU industry. The quarter-on-quarter growth in this quarter is the lowest in history.
