The smaller rival is riding the cryptocurrency wave to shake NVIDIA's dominance in GPUs.
this is actually the more interesting part of the article "As AMD directly pursues business from the cryptocurrency miners by releasing specialized drivers and not placing any restrictions on sales"
AMD are doing things right, can't say the same for Nvidia.
well Nvidia just keeps releasing powerful cards, not catering to a business that is ruining pricing for everyone..
Nvidia has had more solid releases then Amd. Where is Amds`s 1080ti competitor? Its march 2018 and none in sight. But they got time for discrete gpu for cryptocurrency gains. You cant make this stuff up.
Won't see a 1080ti rival for awhile likely 2019 or whenever they can achieve 7nm chips. I
Joining the winning Team PlayStation is that right move.
@SuperSonic912h your mother asks you to please take you medicine
Nvidia hasn't released a new card in over a year. Also, not sure if you can even find the 1080tis in stock. Nvidia is doing just fine.
They don't need to release new cards when AMD can't even compete. When the Vega 64 released here in Canada, I bought a liquid cooled 1080Ti for cheaper. Like unless you have a freesync monitor, there is no reason to go with AMD right now.
"AMD expanded a big to 33 % share , while NVIDIA commanding the rest.", I think it was a very small dent after all XD
Try to calculate that for the future... a 5% marketshare gain over one year is not at all a small dent. That means that AMD would overtake Nvidia in 3 years.... not that i believe that would happen, but with the growth now that would indicate it. So it is by nio means a small dent.
AMD's are excellent GPUs (for setting your house on fire).
I wouldnt call it "big dent", but its good to see AMD is making money. That means better CPUs and GPUs for better money in the future.
Cryptocurrencies are a scam. Smart money doesn’t invest there. Nvidia is doing the right thing to focus on value markets, instead of bubbles. That’s where the tint AMD can’t compete anyway, not enough budget for R&D. Blockchain tech is solid tho, and that’s where some money might be. DYOD.
Game developers should be able to cut cost by focusing on optimizing their games for nvidia only and not for amd, majority of amd graphics card owners are not going to play games anyway.
