Video card market value has almost quadrupled in a year, Nvidia still well ahead

The shortage of video cards is still great and even appears to cause chaos at physical stores. Market analyst Jon Peddie Research writes that the total market value of all desktop video cards sold in the first quarter nearly quadrupled from the same quarter a year ago.

The total value of all custom graphics cards sold was $12.5 billion — an increase of 370% from Q1 2020. Thus, AMD and Nvidia reference models will not be included, although this number is relatively negligible. will be. Not only have prices increased, sales have also increased. The first quarter sold 7.1% more video cards compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, and 24.4% more compared to the first quarter of 2020.

Nvidia still reigns supreme when it comes to desktop video cards. In the first quarter, according to the market analyst, it controlled 80% of the market, compared to 69% a year before. However, AMD’s introduction of the RX 6000 products has produced a lot for team red, because AMD’s share was still 17% in the fourth quarter. In the first quarter of this year it has therefore increased slightly to 80%. It is not clear how the laptop market is doing. A major factor in the high demand will be the widespread use of the desktop models by cryptocurrency miners.
