AMD expected to grab 40% discrete graphics card market share in 3Q08


Recommended Posts

With AMD's ATI Radeon HD 4800-series graphics cards successfully cutting into the US$200-300 mainstream market forcing Nvidia to cut the price of its previous generation GeForce 9800 GTX down to US$199, sources at graphics card makers see AMD's discrete graphics card market share as having a chance to increase to 40% in the third quarter this year from around 30% at the beginning of 2008.

Since Nvidia's GeForce 9800 GTX does not provide advantages in power consumption or performance over the same priced Radeon HD 4850, graphics card makers are more optimistic over AMD's upcoming performance.

I never really thought of it like that, but I guess your absolutely correct, without AMD we'd be paying almost triple for everything. Wheres the rest of the 3rd rate companies, make more cpu's so I can get a high-end processor for cheap!

EDIT: Not saying AMD is third rate, don't go nuts I've owned one before and loved it.

Nah its all cool. AMD is not that far behind usually. For a while they were top dog. It'll come back to them again later.   :smiley:

IDK its looking really grim for them, nothing coming down the line that will challenge intel. There graphics card's are looking really good. They are actually making nvidia open there eyes for once.
