Intel Matches AMD in Discrete GPU Market Share

Recent data from JPR, a leading PC market research outfit, indicates a monumental shift in the discrete GPU market. Intel has managed to match AMD for discrete graphics card numbers at 9% market share, achieving parity with AMD for the first time in history. While Nvidia continues to dominate the graphics card market with 82%, Intel's market share has increased from 5% as early as the 4th quarter of 2022. 

Intel has achieved this impressive growth by leveraging the advantages of integrated graphics and embedded graphics. As of the 4th quarter of 2021, Intel had 71% of the market, Nvidia 17%, and AMD 12%. This growth is due to the production and shipment of Intel's DG1 graphics desktop boards and Xe Max dedicated graphics chips for laptops. 

While the market share growth is impressive, it cannot be said that Intel is a competitor to Nvidia. Nvidia still holds a considerable lead in the gaming graphics market. This is demonstrated by AMD's frequent failure to fully challenge NVIDIA's market domination, which leaves Intel with a greater share of the market. 

However, due to Intel's impressive growth over the past few years, the battle is now a three-way fight. With Intel's relatively low performance compared to more established players, it will be interesting to see how the market unfolds over the next few years. 

In conclusion, the data collected by JPR is a demonstration of Intel's remarkable growth in the discrete GPU market. With Intel and AMD achieving parity in the market, the landscape is now a three-way fight between Intel, AMD, and Nvidia. It will be interesting to see if Intel can continue its growth in the coming years and challenge the position of the industry leaders.
