Therefore, instead of it being 6%, 7% or 8% nvidia it's only 5%. I want to see what happens in the next 2 quarter or so.
i think they'll continue to slowly rise over the next 18 months. They've gotta few cards left to play, physically and metaphorically. Not sure GPU releases will do much for their stock, like you said. That's a long game they need to start playing. NV's been dominating the segment for 4 years now. You can argue all you want about 290, 390, keplar being weak, etc etc, but the truth is NV's had em beat and the #s show it, and that's all they care about in the end. My main curiosity at this point is if they're holding off more navi because of the incoming consoles
AMD can be the media's darling overnight, but there are plenty of people around still fully indoctrinated with anti-amd memes from the last decade of oofs. the last good roast they had on NV was wood screws, & 3.5gb. The turings burning/DOA thing didn't make anywhere near as much noise. Though the good news is, most reasonable people wanna get away from Intel, just from being bored with the platform, and swiss cheese memes.
