The IBC still gives shear values for gyp board in table 2306.4.5

200 plf is the max shear though.  And be sure to use the correct R value for seismic calcs.

We are looking at a project in the Denver area.  It is my understanding that gyp. board sheathing is still used for shear walls.  Is this the case?
