The Jon Peddie Research Institute has posted its fourth quarter 2017 balance sheet for graphic chips. Shipments are down 1.5% from the previous quarter and 4.8% year-on-year.
Intel is still leading the way with 67.4% market share, down 0.4 point over three months and 0.7 point over one year. NVIDIA is second at 18.4%, 0.9 points lower over three months and 0.9 points higher over one year.
For its part, AMD recovers the remains, or 14.2% of market share. This is 1.2 points better than the third quarter (8% increase), but only 0.2 points better than Q4 2017.
The institute adds that according to its figures "more than three million expansion cards (AIB) were sold to minors for a value of 776 million dollars in 2017. AMD was the main beneficiary of these sales." It nevertheless provides for a decrease in requests from minors for the coming months.
