GPU market sees impressive recovery as desktop graphics cards sales rocket up 37% — JPR says ‘the post-Covid black death is over’

GPU shipments increased 16.8% in Q3 compared to Q2, largely thanks to desktop graphics cards, according to Jon Peddie Research. Declaring that “the post-Covid black death is over,” the report shows that the GPU market may finally be on the path to recovery after a dreadful two years of nearly back-to-back decreases in shipments.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic fueled intense demand for PCs and GPUs by extension, the market entered a significant downturn in 2021. The market finally rebounded in Q2, but it wasn’t clear if it would hold. Q3’s 16.8% quarter-over-quarter increase in shipments, however, strongly indicates that things are finally on the upswing for the graphics industry.
