AMD, Intel, and Nvidia all down - Jon Peddie Research
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 5:16P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

The news was disappointing for every one of the major players. AMD dropped 13.6%, Intel slipped the least, just 2.9%, and Nvidia declined the most with 16.7% quarter-to-quarter change, this coming on the heels of  a spectacular third quarter. The overall PC market actually grew 2.8% quarter-to-quarter while the graphics market declined 8.2% reflecting a decline in double-attach. That may be attributed to Intel's improved embedded graphics, finally making "good enough" a true statement.

 

On a year-to-year basis we found that total graphics shipments during Q4'12 dropped 11.5% as compared to PCs which declined by 5.6% overall. GPUs are traditionally a leading indicator of the market, since a GPU goes into every system before it is shipped and most of the PC vendors are guiding down for Q1'13.

 

The turmoil in the PC market has caused us to modify our forecast since the last report; it is less aggressive on both desktops and notebooks. The popularity of tablets and the persistent recession are the contributing factors that have altered the nature of the PC market. Nonetheless, the CAGR for PC graphics from 2012 to 2016 is 3.2%, and we expect the total shipments of graphics chips in 2016 to be 549 million units.

 

The ten-year average change for graphics shipments for quarter-to-quarter is a growth of -1.3%. This quarter is below the average with an 8.2% decrease.

 

Our findings include discrete and integrated graphics (CPU and chipset) for Desktops, Notebooks (and Netbooks), and PC-based commercial (i.e., POS) and industrial/scientific and embedded. This report does not include handhelds (i.e., mobile phones), x86 Servers or ARM-based Tablets (i.e. iPad and Android-based Tablets), Smartbooks, or ARM-based Servers. It does include x86-based tablets.

 

The quarter in general

  • AMD's quarter-to-quarter total shipments of desktop heterogeneous GPU/CPUs, i.e., APUs increased 0.8% from Q3 and declined 19.1% in notebooks. The company's overall PC graphics shipments slipped 13.6%.
  • Intel's quarter-to-quarter desktop processor-graphics EPG shipments increased from last quarter by 3%, and Notebooks fell by 6.76%. The company's overall PC graphics shipments dropped 2.9%.
  • Nvidia's quarter-to-quarter desktop discrete shipments fell 15.1% from last quarter; and, the company's mobile discrete shipments dropped 18.4%. The company's overall PC graphics shipments declined 16.7%.
  • Year to year this quarter AMD shipments declined 29.4%, Intel dropped 5%, Nvidia slipped 4.6%, and VIA fell 10% from last year.
  • Total discrete GPUs (desktop and notebook) 15.9% from the last quarter and were down 9.7% from last year for the same quarter due to the same problems plaguing the overall PC industry. Overall the trend for discrete GPUs is up with a CAGR to 2016 of 3.2%.

Ninety nine percent of Intel's non-server processors have graphics, and over 67% of AMD's non-server processors contain integrated graphics; AMD still ships IGPs.

 

Year to year for the quarter the graphics market decreased. Shipments were down 3 million units from the same quarter last year.

Table 1: Total Graphics Chip Market shares (Jon Peddie Research)

 

Graphics chips (GPUs) and chips with graphics (IGPs, APUs, and EPGs) are a leading indicator for the PC market. At least one and often two GPUs are present in every PC shipped. It can take the form of a discrete chip, a GPU integrated in the chipset or embedded in the CPU. The average has grown from 1.2 GPUs per PC in 2001 to almost 1.4 GPUs per PC.

In order to hit their 2012 shipment targets, motherboard vendors significantly increased shipments in November-December 2012 although market demand did not rise, and consequently inventory levels in retail channels have risen to above healthy levels. In response, vendors have made large cuts in orders to component makers and ODMs, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers.

buyer's advice from Hardware.Info.
     Tue, Feb 12 2013 | 12:02P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every month for the past 15 years, Hardware.Info has published its well-known PC Buyer’s Guides. Comprising multiple categories defined both by budget and how the computer will be used, these Guides are based on the results of Hardware.Info’s very own component and peripheral product tests. This method ensures that all important parts are selected purely based on proven merit in our rigorous and standardized tests. For 2013 we will be shaking things up a bit, introducing new Guides and adjusting the publication frequency to match the pace of technological developments in the different areas. For example, the evolution of hard disk storage has been slowing down, so we will be publishing fewer iterations of our home server Guides. On the other hand, increases in CPU and GPU power continue unabated, so our Gaming PC Guides will be updated more often. Hardware.Info tests more than 1,500 products a year, many of them components and peripherals. Our PC Buyer’s Guides are therefore uniquely based on huge amounts of actual performance testing data: the best possible starting point for building your own system. Of course, our Guides often serve as a catalyst for discussion, and we always love to get feedback from our readers. Their opinions help us make sure that our categories remain up-to-date and reflect what people want as consumers.

Apple's 10-Year Run: where they succeeded and failed
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 4:01P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the decade we have been publishing TechSpot, we have watched Apple resurge from the joke that G3 and G4 machines represented, to the Apple 'Mac vs. PC' debate -- during a time the company had better luck selling MP3 players than computers -- to today's ubiquity of Apple products in all forms of computing devices. Coming from near bankrupcy during the 90's, it took several years to turn Apple around, but perhaps most important, it took several innovations and breakthrough products to rebuild their image as a tech pioneer. Today, Apple gets much deserved respect from its competitors, and within the industry, there’s unsaid expectation that they are the ones paving the way towards the next big thing.
