AMD has gained GPU Market Share last quarter


AMD has gained GPU Market share in the last quarter, though Nvidia still remains dominant with over 75% market share. While overall demand for AIB (Add-in boards)/ Discrete GPUs has decreased 2015 saw a large increase in sales for enthusiast level products, with total sales increasing from around 2.9 million in 2014 to around 5.9 million in 2015. 

This shows that there is increased demand for high end gaming GPUs, which is likely due to the recent move towards more advanced graphical APIs and the increase in graphical fidelity and PC system requirements due to the release of the PS4 and Xbox One. What we can also see here is that consumers are very willing to pay for high end GPU products in the current games market.

When compared to the same quarter last year AMD's market share has decreased by 2.9%, but when compared to last quarter we can see that AMD's market share has increased by 1.3%. AMD hope that their work with the new DirectX 12 API and their use of Asynchronous Compute will help them to continue to increase their market share in the coming months, especially with their New Polaris Architecture GPUs on the horizon.

While the overall AIB market has declined over the last quarter, the PC gaming segment has actually grown by 2%, showing that PC gaming is showing growth despite the decrease in overall PC sales.

This happens every so often. The big sign of a change is going to depend on how well Nvida planned for DX12 and corrected some of the short falls we are starting to see pop up. Also a lot of costumers are starting to dislike Nvidia's priority Gameworks software and some of the business practices that result from that. It's going to be an interesting summer.Quote

It still amazes me how many people bought a 970/980 over the 290/290X/390/390X, nVidia are just on point when it comes to marketing and reputation, AMD need far more than just a good product to make a comeback.

I got my 970 brand new for cheaper than a 390 at the time sold it and got a 980 second hand for an extra 40 euro in the end I have a 980 that cost me 370 euro, easy choice for me but if I was buying new today I'd go 390Quote

It'd be interesting to see a study of used component demand too. Seems like prices don't drop a whole lot with single generation gaps. Just sold my 290x for $25 USD less than I bought it for new, reinvested in a Fury. Influences like gaming packages would be interesting in a study too. The AMD rewards tiers were great compared to the pared down versions of rewards now. The single release freebie seems a lot more polarizing. Past more 'hardcore' enthusiasts,I wonder how much vendor and AIB brand loyalty there is in more mainstream gamers, even with big end rigs, I would wager there are plenty of people looking for a specific level of performance at a price point, caring less about green red or blue.Quote

A lot comes back to the old drivers are rubbish myth. Ask anyone on any forum or any group about GPU's and chances are most of the (misinformed) comments will be AMD drivers are garbage, or AMD will run hotter than the sun. All stuff from generations ago. Word of mouth and a bad rep is a hard one to beat no matter how large your marketing budget is or how good the current products are. Glad to see some positive growth though.Quote
