JPR says that Integrated Graphics Processors will account for a tiny fraction of GPU shipments by 2013

Today the vast majority of netbook and notebook computers come with integrated graphics. Many low-end desktop computers also use integrated graphics.

According to a new report from Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the integrated graphics processor (IGP) will go the way of the dodo in a few years. JPR predicts that by 2013, IGPs will account for less than 1% of GPUs shipped.

JPR numbers show that in 2008, 67% of all graphics chips shipped were of the integrated variety. The prediction is that by 2011 the percentage of IGPs shipped will be 20%. The decline in IGPs shipping means that there will be gains in discrete GPU shipments and a significant growth in CPUs that feature integrated graphics cores.

JPR reports that between 2010 and 2012 there will be three different options for graphics including discrete graphics cards, IGPs, and CPUs with embedded graphics. Last month, DailyTech reported on future Intel processors code-named Clarkdale and Arrandale, which both have integrated graphics cores.

CPUs with embedded graphics are expected to enhance discrete graphics in notebooks and netbooks. This will allow the low power graphics core inside a CPU to be used when demands are low, but when video decoding begins or a game is launched the discrete card will kick in to provide the needed muscle. This is very much like the hybrid SLI offering from NVIDIA available today that uses the IGP and a discrete GPU for extra performance.

But aren't Fusion and future Intel products supposed to have a GPU MCM with a CPU? Isn't that technically a IGP? Or their are just giving a different name of embedded GPU - EGP?

They are counting it differently I believe:

Stupid IGP are going always be around long past 2012. HTPC will have a need for them.

It won't happen. They predicted that it was going to happen five years go.

In the end, three things will never go away. IGP, AGP, and Norton.

so who cares!!!



I like how you explained the date system there, for us lesser thinkin' folks.
I think this article is explicitly talking about the shipment of new IGP computers, which the 2012 thing might be true as it will have migrated to the CPU.

Isn't AGP already extinct? The newest GPU lines from the big companies don't offer any AGP products, and there's maybe 1 new-ish board in existence that still sports an AGP slot.
