CPU shipments rose 17% in the second quarter as Intel steals market share from AMD

Analytical agency Jon Peddie Research (JPR) reported a 17% increase in global central processing unit (CPU) shipments in the second quarter of 2023 compared to the first quarter. At the same time, integrated graphics processing unit (iGPU) shipments grew 14% sequentially, although volume was down year-over-year.

According to JPR, PC CPU shipments reached 53.6 million units in the second quarter of 2023, up 17% sequentially. When we compare CPU shipments year-over-year, total processor shipments (including all platforms and processor types, both with and without integrated graphics) are down 23%. Desktop CPU shipments were down 25% and notebook shipments were down 22%. Looking at the market split among processor manufacturers, AMD’s share of the CPU sector has fallen by 5.3% since last quarter, while Intel’s share has increased by 23%.

Looking only at the supply of chips with integrated graphics at the same time, quarterly growth was 14% to 49 million units. However, iGPU chip shipments fell 29% year over year. From 2022 to 2026, iGPU chip shipments are expected to grow at an average annual rate of 2.5%. By the end of the forecast period, their total volume is expected to reach 4.8 billion units, and with it, the share of iGPU in personal computers will increase to 98%.

JPR President Jon Peddie commented: “The increase in CPU shipments in the second quarter is positive news after the modest results of the last quarter and the last two years. The increase in integrated graphics is also pleasing, since most CPUs have integrated GPUs. The forecast for the next quarter is cautiously optimistic. AMD and Intel are planning growth, albeit moderately“.

The growth in global CPU shipments in the second quarter of 2023 points to a recovery in the market after a long slump. However, despite the current growth, annual shipments remain below expectations. The future prospects of the experts are cautiously optimistic and much will depend on the strategies of the largest market participants such as AMD and Intel.
