That`s not only good news for the company but also to the end user. More profit equals more funds for the R&D department which equals better products which equals higher competition. Let`s hope AMD`s next generation processors will have a same effect.

Don't go hard on Nvidia, AMD!

My ideal video card market share :
AMD : 49.99999%
Nvdia : 49.99999%
Intel : 0.0000...000001% (user who dont own "real" video card)

AMD + ATI = <3

but ... ATI was devoured by AMD in 2006. So it just AMD now...

The market is changing so fast these days, I think to make a market prediction like this is a matter of throwing the dice.

An ideal market needs more than 2 competitors. That's a huge reason why the CPU/GPU industries are so stale.

I hope amd can beat NVidia they have been ridiculous with the last few series gouging and limiting voltages etc. Basically they've been ****ting on the enthusiasts.

Wonder what you thought about Fermi?

Also the drivers in my experience have been the same as my Geforce experience...zero issues.

my 580`s ran pretty cool with good overclock. original fermi was the ones that ran hot, not the 500 series. even my 480 ran cooler than the 290x on the stock cooler. it hovered around 88c full load in summer. and both did not throttle due to heat

Speak for yourself, ever since I have had my 7970 I have had ZERO driver issues.

When I had my GTX480 guess what I had ZERO driver issues.

When I had my 4870x2 I had driver issues for five months and had to use TwL's modified drivers which were phenomenal.

When I had my 8800GTX I had to skip nearly every other driver release due to Nvidia fixing 2 things and breaking 10 others.

Truth is BOTH sides have problems with their drivers from time to time.

AMD for the most part now ever since 12.11 never settle launch their drivers have been excellent, their frame pacing drivers have been excellent.

Their new R9 290x, does it run hot sure it does. Was it designed to run hot sure it was! Don't like the heat make a custom fan profile or lower the thermal threshold. Does it overclock well, not really, but consider this its on the same 28nm process and they have crammed A LOT into it. Sure it going to run hot.

Maybe now with some decent market share and some decent money being pumped back into R&D we will see AMD's reference GPU's coming with better coolers much like the excellent ones on the 780 and Titan.

AMD have bet big with the next gen consoles, they have bet big with cheap, affordable APU's for the average consumer and its paid off. Now those profits can be pumped back into their high end segment for their next architecture which they will then filter down to their lower products such as APU's.

My 480 was a beast, I slapped on an Arctic Accelero Xtreme Plus cooler onto it, cranked the near silent fans up to 12v, pumped 1.2v through the GPU and I got that puppy up to 850/1700/2000 easily and temps were never over 65c in the summer heat, normally around 56-60c after a long time gaming. I think I either had a great chip or that cooler was just beastly. Bit of both I think.

Mine was stock cooler. It was in my bu rig that I hardly used. So I didnt really care about temps much

So, is this prediction based on dedicated graphics....or the actual desktop graphics market? There's a big difference in market share between the 2....

That would be a major loss for consumers. Intel holds a majority of the desktop graphics market because the majority of PCs don't need a dedicated graphics card. Forcing all users to buy a dedicated card, would not only increase the price of pre-built computers but would also increase the prices we all pay for graphics cards.

My point is they ran hot TK, i own a 470 love it. If watercooling for the 290x has proved anything it's that the stock cooler was completely inadequate for it. Those temps will come down and throttling will stop with custom cooling solutions.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages...review,13.html

94C and 95C on reference coolers

Is hawaii a refresh? No, hence my comparison to 1st gen Fermi.

Speaking of your 580 what's a decent OC for one? Friend has one (though he's never OCed) he's considering it. I got 700/1750 with my 470 relatively easy, not that it's a large OC or anything but still.

Beautifull so, they will pass from 38 to 40% ....


Seriously, this make years and years between Nvidia and AMD discrete gpu, the marketshare are nearly 60/40%, or 55/45,,, on the 5870 times, it have result in 52/48 ( for AMD )
...
And this is good, this mean good competition on discrete gpu.. because both brand are really close ( its not like Samsung who have 2x time the marketshare of Apple in smartphones, or windows who have 90% of marketshare ) ( Samsung 38 %, Apple 12%, the third one is at 7% and all the rest of brand are share something like 1 to 5% )

What this news is about, AMD who have got a flat quarter, will come back on what it was stand 8 months ago ? In global GPU Marketshare, AMD is still way ahead of Nvidia ( with nearly 2x the marketshare of Nvidia ) .

@OPS, the card dont overheat at 94C, this is the operational setting for the 290x ... the chips is trying to stay at this temp.. ( if lower it decrease the fanspeed, if higher it increase it... the TDP is too linked to it, as for the clockspeed.. ).. Its too bad the cooling is not more silent.. as it could have been an interessant point for explain how work powertune .
