  1. Jon Peddie Research has released its latest report on the graphics market, announcing that combined discrete and integrated GPU shipments in Q4 2012 dropped 8.2% sequentially and 11.5% on a year-to-year basis. The underwhelming results were largely blamed on the...

    Nvidia better wake up. I can see more and more casual users using integraded CPU/GPUs. That new handhell console is hit and miss and their mobile products are competing with texas instruments, apple and others.
     
  3. Hmm intel showed a 2.9% drop in graphics = 2.9% drop in comsumer CPU's since all consumer CPU' except very select bunch have graphics intergrated

    AMD having the performance crown and good price/perf doesn't seem to be helping them and drop in laptop sales seems to have hurt them the most

    I have no idea how Nvidia was able to gain market share....
     
  4. I'm disappointed in AMD for taking so blasted long to get faster/lower power APU for Tablets. The C-series are good apu's but dated. Time for some 2x2ghz Intel/Nvidia eating powzazz.

    It's probably due in part to the global recession. People tend to hold on to their stuff longer than they used to. I know I do.
     
  6. This is not surprising at all. The graphics card market has a huge issue with price manipulation. When you look at prices for discrete GPU across various shops, there are huge price variations for even the same products. It's almost like they don't even want you to buy the GPU.

    true, in the us the prices can vary from 160$ to 220$ for a 7850, and prices seem to change constantly

    If you look at the last 5 years, AMD has held onto the single GPU performance crown for maybe half a year to a year. For the most part Nvidia has owned the crown.
    Where have you been? They have always had it when talking about the aftermarket GPU market...well last I knew anyways. There are many reasons for their success, but the main ones are stability and features with old and new games alike, plus CUDA for folding/ PhsyX for gaming.
    I've enjoyed my Radeons and still have a couple laying around but the GTX's are the best cards money can buy. Even when the Radeons benchmark faster they still don't feel as smooth or as powerful...well in my experience.
    I think AMD pulled out all the stops to temporarily get the crown and Nvidia said enough, meet Mr. Titan. The real Keplar.
