3.76M Data Center GPUs Supplied by NVIDIA in 2023

DateJun 12, 2024

A research by semiconductor analysis firm TechInsights from Canada indicates that NVIDIA had an explosive 2023 in data-center GPU shipments, totaling about 3.76 million units. According to the report, NVIDIA’s data-center GPU shipments in 2023 increased by more than a million units over 2022, when they reached 2.64 million units.

Comparable to 2022, NVIDIA maintained a commanding 98% market share in data center GPU shipments in 2023.

TechInsights estimates that the overall shipments of GPUs for data centers, including AMD and Intel, increased to 3.85 million in 2023 from roughly 2.67 million in 2022.

With $36.2 billion, more than three times the growth from $10.9 billion in 2022, NVIDIA also held a 98% revenue share of the data-center GPU market.

According to TechInsights, AMD shipped roughly 500,000 units in 2023, with Intel shipping the remaining 400,000 units.

Data Center GPU Shipments in 2024

AMD’s GPUs in the MI300 series are selling well; Microsoft, Meta, and Oracle have all committed to buying them.

AMD is expected to increase its shipments of GPUs for data centers in 2024. The vendor has unveiled plans to introduce new GPUs annually at Computex this month. Their MI325X is expected to arrive this year, followed by the MI350 in 2025 and the MI400 in 2026.

The future of Intel’s data center GPU is still unclear. Their Ponte Vecchio GPU was recently terminated by the corporation, and in 2025, a new Falcon Shore GPU will be released. Additionally, Intel sells data center GPUs and inferencing GPUs under the Flex series.  Although not as versatile as GPUs, Intel is now concentrating on its Gaudi AI processors. It takes a lot of work though to specifically develop generative AI models to operate on Gaudi processors. GPUs from NVIDIA are better suited to run a variety of models.
