    This is great news for the industry. Competition is good for everybody. Here's to hoping this development continuing towards more of a balance!

    Thumbs up Re: Graphics card AiB market report shows AMD at 29 per cent

    S3 need to up their game a bit though. My last S3 card was the Savage4 3D with S3TC. Not a bad bit of tech, but in need of an update I reckon. Still, the only way is up from their position...

    The problem for AMD is what they were selling makes no profit, and now NV will be selling their cards in that segment also. I expect it to go back to 75/25 now that NV is in that game too. AMD chose the wrong path. The growth is in the TOP end, which is why NV made almost their 2007 profits in a single quarter this month. They should have put out VEGA first, then the junk last. I highly doubt the gpu side of AMD make much money if at all again. Market share means nothing if you have to give stuff away to get it.

    It's like that old saying, it's the economy stupid. Well, in this case, it's the profits stupid. Go where they are at! ALWAYS. I'd rather fight over profits (especially when NV can't even provide enough cards to keep shelves stocked for months), than over cards that have near zero margins, just to claim some share gains. Vega might have done well against 1070/1080, but now it faces TitanX (already out) and coming 1080ti. My guess is 1080ti hits first to steal EARLY buyers and net the largest share of profits (jan), but maybe AMD will finally put out Vega (which has only been mentioned as early 2017, that can mean march). I don't expect vega to beat 1080ti anyway, but the quicker it gets out the more chances you get to nab high dollar buyers, that is for certain.

    Re: Graphics card AiB market report shows AMD at 29 per cent

    People might notice Q3 2016 has had the most graphics cards shipped of any quarter since 2014.



    The biggest increases have happened in the sub $300 area. Apparently according to some reports AMD were actually supply constrained.

    In a year they have gone from 18.8% marketshare to nearly 30% with no real competition to Nvidia at the high end.

    Plus anybody looking at AMD financials would realise any losses have come from things like the WSA which has cost them like $1 billion in the last 5 to 6 years.

    Also CPU consumers sales are rolled into their consumer GPU sales,so it is most likely their GPU section is doing OKish.

    Zen is the most important launch AMD will have in a decade and that will determine if they sink or swim as a whole.

    This is what is dragging them down the most.

    I might not be serious.
