According to Jon Peddie Research the overall GPU market was up 4% in Q1 2008. Traditionally the first quarter of the year sees negative or flat growth as the market rebounds from the holiday shopping season of Q4.

Q1 2008 marked the first quarter to quarter growth in the GPU industry in 6 years according to JPR and the quarter was up 32% year to year. Intel and VIA were the biggest gainers for the quarter.

Total shipments for the quarter were 104.5 million units. Intel was tops in the graphics market with 48% of the market, AMD had 16.9% of the market, and NVIDIA had 29.7% of the GPU market. Things were closer on the desktop front with Intel holding 46% of the market against NVIDIA’s 31% and AMD dropped to 17%.
