AMD Expected To Grab 40% Discrete Graphics Card Market Share In Q3 08

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 7 comments


With AMD’s ATI Radeon HD 4800-series graphics cards successfully cutting into the $200-300 mainstream market forcing Nvidia to cut the price of its previous generation GeForce 9800 GTX down to $199, sources at graphics card makers see AMD’s discrete graphics card market share as having a chance to increase to 40% in the third quarter this year from around 30% at the beginning of 2008. Since Nvidia’s GeForce 9800 GTX does not provide advantages in power consumption or performance over the same priced Radeon HD 4850, graphics card makers are more optimistic over AMD’s upcoming performance.

    God it's about time! :-) I'm thinking of upgrading to my first ATI card later this year from a 8800GTX. I'm going to wait for Intel and AMD's offerings and hopefully the 4870x2 will be out by then too. Good times for us consumers. Go AMD.

    I wouldn't wait for intel's offerings... chances are they won't come up with anything worth.

    Go AMD! I really like their product since ATi regained itself in the market.
