Have gamers already bought everything? Desktop graphics card sales in the third quarter were the worst in 20 years

Published

According to analysts at Jon Peddie Research, the third quarter of 2022 was not only a very bad year for the GPU market, but also the worst for the desktop GPU market, that is, desktop graphics cards, in 20 years or more.

Deliveries of desktop accelerators for the quarter amounted to 6.9 million units, and almost the same number of discrete GPUs were shipped to the mobile market. In total, we are talking about 14 million GPUs, and this is 42% less than a year earlier!

Back to desktop GPUs, Jon Peddie Research has data from 2005. As you can see, in the same 2005 and in the next few years, deliveries were many times larger. Given the demand for 3D cards in the early 2000s, it is likely that prior to 2005 the results were much higher than the current ones, so the current figure is most likely the worst in more than 20 years. The closest to the last quarter was the second quarter of 2019 with a result of 7.4 million GPUs. There were also two quarters with deliveries at the level of 8.8-8.9 million units, and in all other quarters the shipments never fell below 9 million units.

In terms of brands, Nvidia remains the leader, with the company hitting an eight-year low of 86% of the entire discrete desktop graphics market. AMD’s share has fallen to 10%, almost half its lowest since 2014. The share of Intel was 4%. Why AMD’s third-quarter sales collapsed so much on a quarterly basis is unclear.

Analysts note that the decline in the supply of discrete desktop GPUs should be considered in conjunction with the supply of mobile. The bottom line is that only in recent years have mobile graphics cards become really very productive, and the prices for such laptops have dropped significantly, so that some users simply choose a gaming laptop instead of a desktop PC.

Nvidia when will the budget GeForce RTX 40s appear for

Photos of Nvidia GPUs of the Ada Lovelace generation, designed for low-cost video cards, have leaked to the Web.

Nvidia, when will the budget GeForce RTX 40s appear for the desktop segment?  Photos of junior GPUs AD107/AD106 for mobile RTX 4050/4060/4070 hit the Network

In the picture you can see the AD107 and AD106 GPUs. So far, there are no processor data carriers in the desktop segment, but they have already been announced in the mobile segment: these are the RTX 4050/4060 and RTX 4070.

The new GPUs are very compact. The smaller one has an area of ​​about 150-160 mm2, and the larger one has an area of ​​180-190 mm2. In comparison, the AD104, which the desktop RTX 4070 Ti is based on and the mobile RTX 4090 is supposed to be based on, measures almost 300mm2.

The AD107 has 3072 CUDA cores while the AD106 offers 4608 CUDA cores. In both cases, video cards will have a 128-bit memory bus.

Laptops based on graphics cards with these GPUs should hit the market soon.

AMD classic Ryzen 7 7700X drops even further and now

Ryzen 7000 processors continue to get cheaper. Now several major foreign chains are offering the eight-core Ryzen 7 7700X for $299.

AMD classic: Ryzen 7 7700X drops even further and now costs less than $300

Recall that AMD initially priced this CPU at $400, then the company lowered prices for all new items, and this model began to cost $350. Now we have another decline, although it may be temporary.

Discounts also apply to the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X and Ryzen 5 7600X, but in their case, the prices simply fell back to those that AMD set back in November, while the Ryzen 7 7700X fell even more.

Whether this offer will be available globally and how long it will be active is unclear. But let’s recall that yesterday AMD itself admitted that for the past six months it has deliberately limited the supply of its products to the market, which is why prices were inflated.

In addition, we recall that the unique Ryzen 7000X3D will soon enter the market.

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best

Intel has released a fresh graphics driver for Arc video cards, which, as the company itself promises, will increase performance by some incredible values.

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best value for money now?  The company claims to have increased productivity by up to 87%

Of course, not everywhere, but Intel says that in Full HD performance will increase by up to 77%, in 1440p by 87%, and the average increase for older games with DirectX 9, which Arc cards initially had problems with, should increase by 43%. All these figures are valid for the Arc A750, which Intel has just reduced the price to $250.

The growth that Intel promises is really impressive. Under these conditions, the $250 Arc A750 should be the best-value graphics card in the class, as it competes on price with the GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6600, which it could previously beat. However, it is better to wait for various tests and evaluate whether such an impressive performance increase really takes place.
