GPUs in 2022: An Industry Recap

Jan. 5, 2023
Jon Peddie Research's annual GPU developments report covers 2022 announcements by leading GPU suppliers.

Our annual GPU report is finally ready. It presents shipment data by quarter and covers benchmarking results, along with detailed descriptions of new GPUs introduced in 2022. This includes GPU intellectual property (IP) through mobile devices as well as those targeting supercomputers. We also highlight new companies.

Suppliers delivering product for the PC, console, and mobile markets has increased fivefold since 2010 and has remained at that level since then (Fig. 1). This includes Apple and Qualcomm, two mobile SoC suppliers, as well as other companies like Arm and Imagination Technologies. 

"Counting PC, mobile, and IP, there are 19 companies worldwide designing and producing GPUs. Some of the companies make GPUs for various categories. For example, AMD and Intel make GPUs that are integrated with a CPU; AMD makes GPUs and provides IP; NVIDIA makes GPUs for the data center, PCs, and automobile; and Qualcomm makes SoC used in VR, smartphones, cars, etc."

2022 saw AMD's introduction of the RDNA 3 GPU and mobile processors with the RDNA 2. NVIDIA delivered its Lovelace RTX 4000 and Hopper family of GPUs. Intel introduced its first standalone GPUs, the Arc A750 and A770 (Fig. 2).

Real-time ray tracing was front and center in 2022. MediaTek's Dimensity 9200 targets smartphones and mobile devices. Qualcomm introduced real-time ray tracing in its Snapdragon SoC. Imagination also targets the higher levels of ray-tracing capabilities (see the video below)

Along the way, we tested platforms like the AMD RX 6500 XT, Intel’s A750 and 770, and NVIDIA's Ampere 3050, RTX 3090 Ti, and RTX 3060, 4090, and 4080. One bit of news to take note of was EVGA dropping NVIDIA GPUs from its lineup. 

We didn't limit ourselves to just GPUs, though. We also looked at 8K monitors as well as some of the new super-wide, super-fast monitors.

The full report, 318-page report is available now.
