Nvidia sells more graphics cards than AMD: Report


If you look at the business figures of AMD, shows a split picture. On the one hand, there is the processor segment, in which AMD thanks to its Ryzen processors again solid ground against Intel makes, and the blue competition is currently driven on. On the other hand, there is still the graphics card segment in which AMD has huge difficulties.

Market researcher Jon Peddie Research, providing data for the global graphics card market, shows that AMD sold 40 percent fewer video cards in the fourth quarter of 2018 than in the same quarter last year. This is the worst quarterly development of the last 10 years. As a result, AMD’s market share has also declined significantly and now stands at only 18.8 percent, while in the fourth quarter of 2017 the manufacturer still had 33.7 percent.

There are currently two reasons for this decline: For the first time, the PC market has been declining for years anyway, which is depressing sales figures at both AMD and Nvidia. To make matters worse last year was that the hype about the crypto mining was over in a short time, whereby the demand for graphics cards massively collapsed.

For AMD is now only to hope that the manufacturer succeeds with his Radeon VII graphics cards, a similar feat, as with the Ryzen processors in the processor market. However, the first leaked benchmarks are promising.
