AMD Market Share Crash, 3 out of 4 use Nvidia GPUs

 

A member of the Beyond3d Forums, known as dbz, has created a graph showing the percentage market share of AMD/ATI and Nvidia discrete GPUs which goes all the way back to 2003. Please click the image below to see it fullscreen. 

Worryingly in recent years AMD has been struggling to maintain market share and in 2014 have dropped from 35% to 24% while Nvidia has climbed from 62% to 76% market share.

The drastic drop in market share this year from AMD is due to Nvidia's release of their Maxwell architecture and AMD's releasing of almost no new discrete GPUs.

If AMD cannot release some competitive new GPUs and soon Nvidia may have no choice but to stagnate in the GPU market for a while, as Nvidia would not want AMD to go under and have to deal with laws of owning a monopoly and the antitrust investigations that would occur. This is likely why Nvidia have been making a lot of moves with their Tegra K1 and X1 SoCs as this is an area of their market where Nvidia can actually grow. 

Hopefully AMD can pull a white rabbit out of their hat when they release their R9 390 series later this year, but until then Nvidia will certainly remain the dominant force in the GPU market space.

How are those figures calculated? At any rate, AMD clearly don't have a clue as to what they are doing. Even if the 390 is some godly power house, it's almost certain that Pascal will blow it out of the water. It's hard to see AMD recovering so much lost ground any time soon.Quote

Damn... even I was somewhat of a "AMD fanboy" recently... but I'm going over to Nvidia now to be honest hehe Quote

I hope the 300 series is a massive success because if AMD go out of business, there will be no competition to Nvidia which will mean less technological breakthroughs.Quote

If amd went under Nvidia would have very costly anti trust investigations to deal with, and with total market dominance why innovate?

Just look at american ISPs, no competition so none of them will upgrade their infrastructure. Why improve when staying the same gives you the same profits?Quote

It's really sad that the 290X would of smashed nVidia's offering if AMD could have just put it across in the right way. They do some good work and if they learn from their mistakes with the 390X i'm sure they will survive.
