It is moving in what to news of hardware related to videogames, which has begun with a new study on the rise in price of GPUs and continues with the market data analysis of processors and chips during the third quarter of 2021.
If we stick only to graphics cards, according to data from Jon Peddie Research during the past quarter shipments were reduced by 18.2% if we compare the data with the second quarter of the year, each led by Intel with a 26% reduction and followed by AMD that sent 11% less graphs than the previous quarter while NVIDIA, the world’s leading GPU company, it is the only one that gives positive results in this sense, sending to wholesalers and stores 8% more cards during the months of July to September.
Despite the fact that the shipment of graphics has decreased in recent months due to inflation, the price of maritime transport and other circumstances related to the pandemic, the truth is that the situation is much better than last year since in the comparison with the same quarter the shipments increased by 12%.
Also, if we compare the market share of the three brands mentioned Intel leads with notoriety with a 62% share, although it fell 6.2% compared to the second quarter, while NVIDIA is in second place with a 20% share and a rise of 4.86% and finally, we have AMD with a market share of 18% and an increase of 1.4%. It must be taken into account that these data are from all the graphics that are sent to the market, including the integrated ones that are found mainly in low-end laptops that are not intended for gaming and that continue to be the majority in stores (hence the difference from Steam’s survey data for equipment intended for gaming).
If we look to the future it is expected that between 2020 and 2025 there is a reduction in growth to decelerate by 1.1% ending this period with a base of 3,249 million units shipped to stores. Furthermore, in this period of time it is expected that discrete charts are more popular increasing its consumption by 31%.
Now turning our attention to the processors, usually CPU delivery has dropped 23.1% with respect to the previous quarter but, as with the graphs, yesIf we compare it with 2020, the result is positive with a growth of 9.2%.
Finally, the major chip and hardware manufacturers andThey expect their distribution (both CPU and GPU) to increase by 3% during the remainder of the year due to a usual seasonality of sales increase in the face of the Christmas season that they do not expect to be so affected by COVID-19.
