Quarter-to-quarter up 1.6%Desktop graphics sales up 3% second quarter in a row Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry's research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, announced estimated graphics chip shipments and suppliers' market share for 2013 4Q. The quarter was the second quarter in a row to show a gain in shipments, up 1.6% quarter-to-quarter, and up 2% compared to the same quarter last year.

Quick highlights: - AMD's overall unit shipments decreased 10.4%, quarter-to-quarter, Intel's total shipments increased 5.1% from last quarter, and Nvidia's increased 3.4%.

- The attach rate of GPUs to PCs for the quarter was 137% and 34% of PCs had discrete GPUs that means 66% of the PCs are using embedded graphics.

- The overall PC market increased 1.8% quarter-to-quarter, but declined 8.5% year-to-year.

Most of the PC vendors are guiding down to flat for the next quarter.

The popularity of tablets and the persistent economic slowness are the most often mentioned reasons for the decline in the PC market.

The CAGR for total PC graphics from 2013 to 2017 is -1.3% in 2013, 446 million GPUs were shipped and the forecast for 2017 is 422 million.

The ten-year average change for graphics shipments for quarter-to-quarter is -2 %. This quarter is 1.6% suggesting the market may have bottomed out and is slowly recoveringhowever, one quarter does not a market make, up or down.
