Click here to post a comment for AMD loses GPU marketshare in Q1 2014 - NVIDIA flat on our message forum
Could this still be due to the miners?
It has to be because they are asking too much for everything. I've said it before, I won't buy at the current prices.
Not surprising really, as far as nvidia being flat. They've had the same line of cards for what seems like forever now. The only thing being released are new revisions of the Titan that is a small niche market.
GPUs are starting to become a lot like hard drives, where after a certain point all you're paying for is the manufacture costs. It's pretty hard to find an unopened GPU cheaper than $40 (including shipping) these days, regardless of how old the architecture is. That being said, there needs to be SOME appeal to buying low-end cards besides power efficiency. So in some ways I think the pricing beyond mid-range cards becomes very "artificial" or even arbitrary.
Could this still be due to the miners?AMD (Discrete, APU, IGP) = 16.7% Nvidia (Discrete) = 16.6% So much for mining driven "win-win situation for AMD" (as described by one g3d poster). During Mantle debut when they had needed market share more than they needed $$, AMD hw prices went through the roof causing many gamers to go green. Not only that, but cheap used mining GPUs are coming back to bite them and this will show in next quarter. If someone has profited from mining craze, it wasn't AMD
Old news. Hasn't Nvidia already been dominating on a yearly basis? 🙂 Only by a few percent though...

Not really much surprising ...
These numbers are too important to leave out of the thread since they came from JPR just the other day. http://jonpeddie.com/images/uploads/news/Table.JPG http://jonpeddie.com/press-releases/details/add-in-board-market-down-in-q1-nvidia-holds-market-share/
