AMD continues to lead mobile GPU market

Written by



Nvidia pins hopes on Sandy Bridge

According to the recent figures churned out by beancounters, AMD is still enjoying a comfortable lead in the mobile discrete GPU market.

AMD currently holds about 60 percent of the market, but analysts are divided on the outlook for next few quarters. While some believe AMD’s share will increase by 8 percent, others expect it to decline by 6 percent.

For one thing, it might be a bit too early to estimate the effect of Fusion parts on AMD’s low-end discrete graphics sales. There’s also the competition to think about. Nvidia has rather high hopes for its discrete mobile GPUs, thanks to numerous design wins for Intel Sandy Bridge notebooks, but it is unclear how the Sandby Bridge delay will affect Nvidia’s plans in the first half of the year.

While Nvidia expects to capitalize on Intel’s new architecture towards the end of the year, emerging as the market leader, AMD will probably put up quite a fight and at this point it’s hard to say who will end up on top.

AMDs mobile market share will only increase following the release of Fusion, also the 28nm entry level mobile HD 7000 series will be making an appearance at the end of this year

FUSION aka NVIDIA_KILLER

What I've noticed aswell is that in my uni class, the people with laptops & netbooks all have ATI radeon graphics or AMD Vision stickers on them, not one Nvidia decal in sight, this is out of 5 or 6 machines aswell

I can't imagine nVidia gaining any market share in laptops, especially not with the Fusion just out, and the Intel HD graphics, although I wouldn't be too hopeful in Intels situation, it's still Intel graphics I wouldn't touch it witha 10 foot pole.

DISCREET Fusion and integrated in the mobile motherboard are not mobile discrete. Discreet graphics is a minority of the laptop market just saying don't bag me, my next traveling lappy will probably be a Fusion.

Damn no editing there should be a fullstop after the first discrete.

As fusion and SB get rolling in laptops the discrete portion will decrease and become less important. I will be one of the few that has to have a discrete GPU in my laptop.

Definitely, and considering how AMD will bring Llano to the market soon, laptops like mine with HD6650M will start seem like a minor upgrade.

You miss-understand how all this works. Every fusion sale costs Ati a low end mobile discrete graphics sale. Ati will loose money with fusion unless they can either sell a lot more fusion cpu's, or have a significantly higher markup on them.

it doesn't matter since the overall mobile market belongs to AMD anyway, including the discrete sector, and people who want a cheap laptop with enough graphics horsepower to push HD and flash are not going to buy a £500+ laptop that has a graphics card, they'll go for something like Fusion, The £500+ machine wasn't really an option in the first place for the person so Fusion isn't really hurting discrete sales
