nVidia grows and grows ...

While sales of nForce chipsets are making slow progress, the market shares of graphics chips from manufacturer nVidia are growing more and more. The notebook market was also able to gain a bit in terms of market shares.

According to information from nVidia Around 70% of all desktop computers in the world already have an nVidia graphics chip. While the graphics sector is dominant, the chipset market is not looking so rosy. Here the market shares are still well below 10%. This is probably due to the fact that the chips do not perform as well as they should at the expensive retail price. The initial price of 90 US dollars has now been reduced. In the future, the nForce with integrated graphics, which is to be further reduced in price, will dominate around 10-15 percent of the low-end graphics sector. 10% of all current notebooks are equipped with an nVidia graphics chip. But you could still sign contracts with some Japanese notebook manufacturers. As for the console market, the future is also positive. In the fourth quarter of last year, 10% of all chips shipped were intended for the Xbox. Since the annual growth of the console market is around 20%, these numbers are likely to increase a little. It looks like TSMC, the manufacturer of the nVidia chips, is busy. This manufacturer is one of the few able to produce chips in the 0.13 micron process. The competitor UMC will only be able to do this in summer.
