Looks like AMD hit the bottom last quarter. They have now recaptured 2.3% from Nvidia.
From 18.8% in Q3 to 21.1% in Q4 2015.
The high-end gamer AIBs were the bright spot in the PC market in 2015, and especially in Q4’15.
Overall add-in board market decreased in Q4'15, AMD gained market share, while Nvidia lost share. Quarter-to-quarter AIBs shipments decreased -4.9% and -7.9% year-to-year.
JPR’s AIB Report tracks computer add-in graphics boards, which carry discrete graphics chips. AIBs used in desktop PCs, workstations, servers, and other devices such as scientific instruments. They are sold directly to customers as aftermarket products, or are factory installed. In all cases, AIBs represent the higher end of the graphics industry using discrete chips and private high-speed memory, as compared to the integrated GPUs in CPUs that share slower system memory.
not a bad increase since it was high end cards released in this time period. Not counting the people that paid more for the same with the 390 launch
when the lower to mid range cards are released it will be better to gauge what market they can take back in the dvga area
What was the same that was more and what more was there that was the same with the 390 ? It scored better scores than the 290X at launch (5% increase from the same chip that is the 290) and came with custom coolers. Sometimes handily beat the 980's . Am I missing something ?
Considering the previous thread said that AMD will be facing their worst for this quarter... Well, surprise !
Happy to see them getting more market share. This is probably due to the DX12 reviews and news. Their marketing strategy suddenly improved a lot. Not to mention their driver quality and release quantity.
