Yes, and the other 99.99%, which buys anything except those $1K/500+ gaming cards, still buys both AMD and Nvidia. If the market was purely about price/performance, then AMD would be the top dog in the GPGPU business, not Nvidia.
So no, looking at the market, price/performance is actually a less relevant statistic than you think. However, it is still relevant for a considerable portion of people.
