Global PC GPU shipment share by vendor 2013-2019

As of the fourth quarter of 2019, Intel was the biggest vendor in the PC GPU market worldwide, occupying 63 percent of the market. AMD, who has shipped over 500 hundred million GPUs since 2013, occupied 19 percent of the market, whilst Nvidia took a market share of 18 percent.

PC GPUs

Graphics processing units (GPUs) are specialized processors optimized for rendering all images on a computer. They are made available to consumers either as integrated or discrete components. Integrated graphics, where Intel dominates, refers to a computer where the GPU is built onto the same die as the central processing unit (CPU). In a discrete component, the GPU is not part of the CPU, but instead a standalone component. They can also be referred to as a graphics add-in-board (AIB), with Nvidia and AMD having complete control of this market.

GPUs for gaming

A GPU provides the fastest graphics processing, and for gamers, the GPU is a standalone card plugged into the computer via a peripheral component interconnect express (PCIe). The more sophisticated the GPU, the higher the resolution, and the faster and smoother the motion. Improved framerates, or the number of frames per second the game runs at, means there is less stutter or freezing due to excessive load on the CPU, enhancing the gaming experience. In smartphones, GPUs feature as part of a system-on-a-chip (SoC) and are also capable of rendering graphics in games, allowing developers to make better looking and more complex games for these devices too.
