Despite having a strong showing earlier this year courtesy of its Fusion chips, graphics shipments from AMD fell 7.3% sequentially as its share fell 13.9% in the 2nd Quarter with a slice of 21.2%. Nvidia's cut was even smaller at 17.5%, though its overall 2nd Quarter performance was slightly better with shipments dipping 5.3% on-quarter.

According to JPR, graphics chips (GPUs) and chips with graphics (IGPs, HPUs, and EPGs) are a leading indicator for the PC market. At least one and often two GPUs are present in every PC shipped. In a May report, it announced an unusual 10.3% increase in graphics shipments between the fourth quarter of 2010 and the first quarter of 2011. That figure ran counter to the period's average change of -4%.
