Graphics Add-in Board Shipments Increase Modest 0.2% from Last Quarter, Reports Jon Peddie Research

Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry's research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, announced estimated graphics Add-In Board (AIB) shipments and sales’ market share for Q1’11.

Overall shipments of graphics AIBs for the quarter came in slightly above the last quarter at 19.03 million units compared to 18.84 million for Q4’10. Shipments in Q1 2011 did not exceed the same quarter a year ago. Nvidia unit shipments decreased by 2% from Q4, while AMD increased 5.7% for the same period.

Shipments during the first quarter of 2011 behaved according to past years with regard to seasonality but was lower on a year-to-year comparison for the quarter. In comparison, Q4’10 did not conform to the normal seasonal cycle, but was down a bit compared to previous years, so the growth in Q1, even though modest, was a positive change.

Our forecast for the coming years has been modified since the last report, and is less aggressive on add-in boards (AIBs).

The quarter in general

In terms of market share, market leader Nvidia lost share by 2.7% from Q4, 2010, while AMD’s market share increased 4.4% for the same period. On a year-to-year basis AMD increased its market share by 16.8% while Nvidia lost 8.4% of market share.

Table 1: Market shares over time
 

Over 19 million AIBs shipped in Q1 2011. Nvidia was the leader in unit shipments for the quarter, elevated by double attach and GPU-compute/CUDA sales.

The AIB market is fueled at the high-end by the enthusiast gamer, small in volume (~9m a year) but high in dollars (average spend for an AIB ~$300). The volume comes from the Performance and Mainstream segments. And GPU-compute is adding to sales on the high end. The Workstation Market is smaller in unit sales than the enthusiastic segment but characterized by higher average selling prices (ASPs).

For the year the AIB market is expected to hit $19.8 billion, down 4.5% from 2010 due to a gradual decline in ASP even though units shipments will be up.

The JPR AIB report covers seven regions and reports on the value of AIB sales and units in those regions.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
