A study by International Data Corporation (IDC) suggests that demand for gaming-class computers and monitors has grown significantly in the second quarter of this year.
By gaming PCs, IDC analysts understand desktop systems and laptops equipped with AMD or NVIDIA discrete graphics accelerators of the middle and top level (Quadro and Radeon Pro solutions are not taken into consideration). As for monitors, gaming devices include panels with a refresh rate of at least 100 Hz.
So, it is reported that in the second quarter of 2019, total sales of gaming computers and monitors reached 10.4 million units. This is 16.5% more compared to the second quarter of 2018. In this case, the lion’s share in the total mass of deliveries was made by gaming laptops.
According to the results of 2019, the total market size for gaming computers and monitors, according to IDC forecasts, will reach 42.8 million units. Of these, 19.4 million, or 45.3%, will be laptops. Another 15.6 million units (36.4%) accounted for desktop systems. Shipments of monitors will be at the level of 7.8 million units (18.3%).
