Jon Peddie Research, a well-known statistician, released the latest video card market report and predicted that the glut would continue until this summer. In the fourth quarter of 2018, total GPU shipments fell by 2.65% annually and 3.3% year-on-year. Among them, Intel's ring ratio declined the least, only 0.7%, AMD reached 6.8%, NVIDIA reached 7.6%.
Sales of desktop graphics cards plunged by 20% compared with a year ago, while sales of laptop graphics cards increased by 8%.
Although NVIDIA continues to update graphics cards rhythmically, including GTX 1660 Ti, which has just been released, and GTX 1660/1650 will soon be released, it is a good time for consumers to purchase old stock cards such as GTX 10 series and AMD RX 4xx/5xx/Vega in the first half of 2019.
Recently, RX Vega 56 and RX 590/580 have all started to reduce their prices in varying degrees, which may be the helpless move of AMD to further joke inventory.
On NVIDIA's side, revenue fell 24% year-on-year in the last quarter, profits fell 49% sharply, and share prices dropped thousands of miles, half a year has been cut. For the new quarter, NVIDIA expects revenue to be flat annually, but it will fall again from $3.21 billion in the same period last year, and revenue for the whole of 2019 is likely to fall by 15-20%.
