New information indicates that the gap between the green producer and theAMD 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 NVIDIA To-AMD, 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 theRadeon And FirePro.
Now, based on a single slide that comes fromNVIDIA 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 AMD, Including the sophisticated Fury cards, did not help narrow the gaps and perhaps even did the exact opposite.
The status of AMD 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 AMD An improvement of tens of percentages Performence (Compared to NVIDIA's minor improvements) and to slightly offset this battlefield.
