JPRIt is pointed out that sales of desktop independent graphics, including gaming graphics cards, fell 22.6% from the previous quarter to about 10.37 million in the second quarter of 2022 – this is also the lowest value since the second quarter of 2020.

It is reported that PC makers and distributors usually reduce chip orders in the second quarter of each year, but this year’s contraction appears to be larger than in the past. This may be because their stock is full, and they have to get rid of the backlog of parts in their hands first.
In terms of market share,IntelRemains the leading PC graphics component supplier in 2Q22 with a total market share of 62%.
AMD came in second with a 20% share (a significant increase from a year earlier), while Nvidia had 18% (up from 15% a year ago).
On the other hand, PC CPU shipments fell by 7% month-on-month and 33.7% year-on-year. Jon Peddie, president of JPR, said:
Compared with the first quarter of this year, the overall performance of GPU suppliers in the second quarter was poor. It is affected by factors such as the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the shortage of energy supply in Europe, and the economic recession caused by high inflation in places such as the United Kingdom.
Because of this, industry forecasting has never been more challenging. And as new data emerges, JPR and other research institutions have to make frequent revisions.
