Qualcomm share is definitely going up proportional to their sales in the chips for the mobile processor series snap dragon.

Indeed, but the table in the first link (that matches the table in your piece) has columns titled 1H 2011 1H2012.

 

I think the table reflects 2011 and 2012, and the different pie chart reflects 1H 2013. But at the moment its totally inconsistent.

The table provided by JPR is in agreement with the top chart.

So that would seem to suggest that the bottom chart was an early draft?

Maybe Jon can shed light here?

Depends which of these identically titled pie charts from JPR you decide is the right one.

Re: Vivante is the biggest winner?

@Rick

You could say that Vivante is the winner.

The numbers actually come out quite conveniently and show that the approx. ratio of Imagintion, ARM, Vivante shipments were: 

about 4:1:0 in 1H12 respectively and moved to 

about 4:2:1 in 1H13.

So to go from effectively nowhere to more than half of ARM's business in one year is a defintely an amazing achievement. But it still leaves Vivante as distant third-placed GPU IP licensor.

It will be interesting when Jon Peddie compares 2013 full year with 2012 full year.

Looks like this startup gained twice as much share as ARM as a percentage, though I assume much less in raw numbers of sockets.

This is indeed a very fluid market and these figures will inevitably change quickly as ARM's GPUs gain more traction (ARM's CPU strength alone will carry its GPU offering), and other players get into the IP licensing model. The market size and growth will ensure the latter.

Re: LIMA driver for ARM MALI GPU
Hemlock Stones   9/26/2013 4:23:35 PM

The Lima driver is a reverse engineering project that does not have official support from ARM.

Or to quote the Lima web site:

"The Lima driver currently only has some preliminary and highly experimental support. This experimental phase is necessary to gain a full and complete understanding of how the Mali GPUs work."

So while it is an interesting development, it is still a long way away from being a huge advantage.

LIMA driver for ARM MALI GPU

I would think that having the open-source LIMA driver for the ARM MALI GPU would be a huge advantage over other GPUs with undocumented interfaces.  I wonder how LIMA is affecting grown of MALI's market share?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
