Report: GPU shipments to grow 10% in 2022

Graphics card shipments are set to grow by "at least" ten per cent during 2022.

That's according to Digitimes, which says that while the number of GPUs being shipped rose during 2021, this is set to continue through this year. This is based on shipments booked in by hardware giants such as Asus, Dell, HP and Apple.

Enterprise is predicted to be the bulk of shipments for 2022 with Digitimes reporting that consumer demand for GPUs is declining ever so slightly. This is likely due to lower demand for graphics cards that are intended to be used for cryptocurrency mining.

GPUs have been highly sought after in recent years – as have a lot of computer chips – due to a supply shortage. This is seemingly set to last until the middle of 2022.

AMD boss Dr Lisa Su said in September of last year that the chip shortage will improve during 2022.
