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.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service?

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
