Survey: AMD CPUs preferred by 60% of Europeans

Is there some more holistic quantification here, because according statista, AMD market share for x86 from Q1 '17 to Q2 '19 moved just 5%, intel did the same from Q1 '14 to Q4 '15; difference being that intel has maintained over 75% market share since Q2 '14, and over 70% well before then. AMD market share puts it back where it was in Q2 '15; thru Q2 '19 anyway. But even this is just another survey. So outside the practically anectodal , is there a significant market share shift based on hard data?

Well, funny enough OEM don't seem to care that much what their customers want..probably busy checking if the check has arrived.

- DIY is only a very small part of the market

Actually... the MOST profit comes from high-end products. Mark-up is generally far higher on those. Why do you think Threadripper costs so much?


Lol... I was stating that his ARGUMENT - "There is no rivalry in the discrete GPU market "
was correct... the reasons for it were heavy-handed, (I disagreed with that part), but I stand by the POINT - which you apparently are wilfully missing.

Before you continue trolling, answer the question: Does AMD actually rival Nvidia?
Yes profit margin is higher on higher end AMD CPUS and GPUs but the sales are there so they aren't that profitable. Vega has been a massive flop for them.

And that’s why Nvidia is wiping the floor with them... they can sell all their high end GPUs for pretty much whatever they please - if AMD can ever compete at the high end again, we might actually see a high end GPU under $1000 ...

Lol... While amstech might have been heavy-handed in his comment, there's really not much of an argument against it.

Can anyone explain why Nvidia has such a dominating market share while still arguing that the AMD cards are actually their equals (or superiors)?

The argument of "name recognition" doesn't hold water - otherwise why do they have such traction in the CPU market? Intel is a bigger company and name than Nvidia!
Ok let me explain this with some other questions...

Why do you think the Ubersaw is more used than the vita-saw in TF2 if its better for medics with bad luck?

Why do you think the m4a4 is more used than the m4a1-s in CSGO if the accuracy is better in the silenced version? (Btw both take 2 shots to kill someone with a headshot, I tested it)

Why do you think the sandvich is more used than the dalokoh’s bar when the dalokohs bar gives you overheal for a short amount of time?

Anyway, I only know one of my friends who bought a high end gpu at the time (gtx 1080) while most of my other friends have budget/mid range gpus (some even don’t have pcs and just stick with consoles)
