It's all about the prices in your region. For a long time, where I live, Radeon cards were much much cheaper than Nvidia cards. The 6500 disaster aside, the rest of the GPUs aren't bad.
For example, even now I can find the 6800XT for about 1300 euros (19% tax included, still crazy expensive) and the RTX3080 is 1550 euros
My problem is not about pricing, I have been having a serious issue with my card for years with no solution (black screen) and since the warranty expired can't RMA, can't sell.

I think they should get out of the dGPU and desktop APU business unless there is some consistency very soon.
Why on earth would they do that ? Those segments are very profitable for them. There has been extreme demand, still is, and with limited wafer allocation, naturally they will not be available for everyone.

17% of the dGPU market...
Any profit looks huge when you hold so little of the market and past products weren't on equal footing with the competition. Software is trash. Always has been.

AMD dGPU's are a complete mess and have been for years. AMD should focus on CPUs and maybe semi-custom for consoles, although with AMD being the only player there, performance is still lacking. 60fps should have been the norm last gen. Not in 2021 along with NVMe and 4K. They should def stay the hell away from putting GPUs in a phone. Steam Deck will fail HARD too.

17% of the dGPU might seem like nothing to you, that dosn't mean that it's not a great market for AMD to be in, making millions of $ might not be alot to you, but I can asure you it is very important for AMD and for competition. AMD GPU's are in some of the most powerful super computers around the word.

"60fps should have been the norm last gen", you might be disappointing with the performance, none the less AMD is making some of the worlds most powerful GPU's out there. A mess ? what mess, they are making top tier product.

Thank god they dont have someone like you in charge of Radeon lol

So when AMD gains market share it's bye bye Intel...

And when AMD has no gains or drops further, it's just another day making millions with the ultra successful Radeon brand with no software to counter Nvidia and probably Intel with any time soon. AMD is a component company with GPUs relying too much on AMD developing the software including drivers for.

Stick to CPU's, AMD.

By the time intel releases ARC we'll already be close to RDNA3's launch date (and Nvidia's 4000 series too). ARC should been out on the market already.
