Continues to run over: NVIDIA controls 82 percent of the video card market

New information indicates that the gap between the green producer and the Is greater than ever before, and the creation of a monopoly in practice may occur in the not too distant future

Just four months ago, we presented you with a great work by a private person who visualized the large and large gaps between To-, With regard to the market for dedicated video cards. Then it was a share of no less than 76 per cent for the GeForce (and Tesla and Quadro) developers, compared with 24 for the developer of the And FirePro.

This is how it looked a few months ago - click to enlarge

Now, based on a single slide that comes from Based on information from market research firm Mercury Research - the gap is even larger, and stands at no less than 82 percent (!) For the green maker compared to only 18 percent for a competitor. These figures talk about the second quarter of 2015, and seemingly prove that the launch of the new product line , Including the sophisticated Fury cards, did not help narrow the gaps and perhaps even did the exact opposite.

This is how it looks in the current state - with good compatibility with past data and continued expansion of NVIDIA's control

The status of It seems very bleak, and for consumers themselves, this is probably not a particularly optimistic situation - after all we are seeing slow progress in the processors market (stationary first and foremost), in a situation where one manufacturer has more than 90 percent control. Based on the latest data, it seems that we may find ourselves in similar market conditions even in the video card world, within a year or two of today. Let's hope it doesn't happen and we don't need to find out what the market looks like in this situation.

Right now, the only AMD rescue stick may be the arrival of the new and advanced DirectX 12 standard - which, judging by The first essential performance test For him, in the alpha of the game of Ashes of Singularity, may give its products An improvement of tens of percentages (Compared to NVIDIA's minor improvements) and to slightly offset this battlefield.

  1. As a result, AMD is becoming a "boutique" video card company under the guise of a giant company. Something will have to change there substantially in order for it to continue to exist somehow.
    So little market share raises concern and puts security and reliability considerations and product support over time.
    What a small global recession now for a year and someone will just take over

  2. HBM Generation 1 is a failure
    NV seems to have done right to choose not to invest in it at this time
    The drawbacks are far greater than the advantages especially given the limited market share of AMD that has invested a lot in it and put all its eggs in it.

  3. The failure is not in technology, but of course at a very high cost. GDDR8's 5GB costs far less than 4GB HBM.

  4. A clear technological advantage that does not translate into practical advantage in the field is a failure in itself, here is the memory problem. Since FURY introduces an innovative application, a "Catholic wedding", between the core and the memory, then the entire product rule is at a disadvantage. When combined, this puts all the GPU in the landing => the whole product in the landing.
    When the product shows no performance or other advantage over the competition, as reflected in the loss of additional market share, it already becomes a failure in the deep, substantial, strategic sense of any innovative approach the product has come to show.

  5. Amma, in terms of credibility, is actually on her. HBM memory will be significantly more reliable than DDR and significantly lower RMA percentages, which is good

  6. RIP AMD
    Too bad.
    But the graph in the article shows a clear trend that is only getting stronger.

  7. Amma, in terms of credibility, is actually on her. HBM memory will be significantly more reliable than DDR and significantly lower RMA percentages, which is good
    That's half the truth, and its (very) small half. The reliability of the memory core GPU will be higher because there is a much higher "synchronization" threshold that must exist between them for proper work. But that inevitably draws a much larger number of duds, there are more parts that can have flaws and any defect that grieves everything else. And that is also backed by the very low ticket that AMD has in their possession. Low FURY-X availability, only 2-3 manufacturers have introduced models of the standard cooling that were not enough for others and I think we have been waiting for Nano for so long that AMD must build a large chip stock to minimize demand problems. So in the end, the benefit of reliability (how much money you lose from a recurring product) is dwarfed by the low production efficiency (some pre-generated chips are expensive).

  8. Not a matter of synchronization and stuff. DDR chips, physically, are easily damaged. Their resistance to heat is nowhere near that of a silicon chip, not as reliable as any silicon chip. It's not Fayette.

  9. This sync is really not the right word and I didn't find one. That's why she's in quotes.

    And about this advantage of HBM versus DDR I have only one thing to say - "Pyrrhic victory"

  10. It's hard to understand how AMD has deteriorated today,
    Not long ago, they stood in an even and even superior position on NVIDIA.

    It would be a disaster for consumers if the market for a single video card maker,
    And as Intel will traditionally improve the processors from generation to generation,
    Because that's how she "deserved it" in the absence of an opponent and competition.

  11. How much is DDR spoiling already? It is one of the most reliable components of your computer.

  12. Stacks of graphics cards with artifacts as a result of memory chips will disagree with you.

  13. Superiority (market share) was only in the ATI era.

    Inaccurately, HD5000 and HD6000 were pretty big successes for AMD and Day brought them (all relative) to market share parity.

    It's hard to say that HBM is more reliable, it seems SK HYNIX can't make enough of it and sure AMD can't make enough FIJI chips. If their marketing people were better they would spend NANO first and only after that move to bigger models, taking advantage of their only distinct advantage being the physical big (the GTX970 ITX or unreliable or noisy).

  14. Stacks of graphics cards with artifacts as a result of memory chips will disagree with you.

    I talked about the computer's RAM. Why are the graphics cards different? Because of GDDR5?

  16. I talked about the computer's RAM. Why are the graphics cards different? Because of GDDR5?

    No.
    This is because of the location:
    The memory card component is embedded on the PCB and very close to the core compared to the general memory (RAM) component that is dedicated in the motherboard slot and protected from the processor heat under a thick layer of cooling and a few inches of air
