Jon Peddie Research has released its Q2 2019 GPU market results, and it's official: AMD shipped more graphics unit than Nvidia for the first time in five years, thanks to AMD shipping almost 9.85% more GPUs than in Q1 (by comparison, Nvidia sold about the same). The market share data represents cumulative shipments of all types of desktop PC graphics units, including those present in processors, which is an area that Nvidia doesn't have a significant market presence.

Update 8/29/19 7:55am PT: Jon Peddie Research provided us with more market share information, which we added below. We also removed reference to graphics units present in consoles, as the report only quantifies PC-based graphics units.

This is one of those "Technically correct, but ..." things. Either way, I'm actually surprised at this. I didn't think there was that much of a market for APUs.

Pretty much all laptops and normal office computers use the integrated GPU and those are far bigger markets than gaming. It'd be valuable to have the numbers for only discrete GPUs, from the steam survey it seems like nvidia is still dominating the gaming market and I don't know how the spread is on the workstation market.

The Workstation market I would imagine has Nvidia all over it. I use workstations frequently as well as CAD software. I attend the CAD events here in the UK and I can tell you that Nvidia is in a good 99% of the showcased workstations from low end to high.

 

To be fair to Nvidia, from what I have heard from our partners in the industry, they are very hands on and work well with the CAD software developers which of course goes along way, so power to them.

 

Last time we used an AMD workstation card we had more issues with instability and performance. I decided to go Nvidia and things were much improved. Now im not saying that would always be the case, but from a company point of view once you have found a stable product...you stick with it. Time is money and a large majority of companies do not have time or resources to keep testing products from "the other side". Companies will rightly stick with what they know, in our case it was that Nvidia cards were better overall.

 

Unfortunately that company mentality can be damaging to hardware manufacturers. You let a company down once, its hard to win their business back and in my experience AMD let us down, granted only the once but that is all it takes.

Isn't CUDA accelerated stuff a lot more prevalent (and generally better implemented) than OpenCL stuff as well?

 

That is my general take on it CUDA is far more implemented than OpenCL.

Not necessarily more in terms of marketshare, but CUDA implementations generally also offer superior performance. At least in more widespread applications like the Adobe software stack, where CUDA generally offers an order of magnitude better performance than OCL.

Yeah I meant generally in terms of performance and adoption. I really think it still comes down to Nvidia being readily available with their SDK's that helps spur on adoption and integration. I think this is still where AMD lacks.
