    Jon Peddie Research released its Q2 2013 GPU market report and interestingly enough if you compare to the previous quarter, AMD shipped 10.9 percent more graphics chips, Intel increased 6.2 percent. N...

    @ DarkKnightDude - Because the vast majority of PCs in use are office machines or laptops that come with Intel graphics, that's why. Those users are not generally concerned with having dedicated graphics cards if they're just using Office or browsing the internet.

    didn't really expect this especially with gtx 7xx series launching in this period. Go AMD, good on you.

    Well done AMD, sales will go up even more after new cards are released.

    hopefully. This could mean that AMD now finally see a decent business model. Release good cards with modern features and with great game bundles with aggressive prices.

    I don't really care if the 9970 beats the Titan, if it's around Titan performance and costs £400, it'll be a great card, no doubt and they will sell loads especially when they bundle it with BF4 and another 2 top games. I can see them selling a lot of HD 99xx cards. No need to be beating nvidia by massive margins, it's all about value for money, unless you're going for the ultimate outright monster rig and money is no problem.

    Oh Undying, have you managed to activate BF3 on Origin.

    eclap should be hired as AMD marketing manager! :p

    Good for AMD. I'm glad to see them finally catching a break.

    Very true. A £550 GTX 780 and an £850 GTX Titan as high end cards, even if they are faster than any single GPU AMD card, were never going to be flying off the shelves. It is disturbing to see the price of high-end cards going from £300 to £550 over the last few years. That's nearly doubled!!!

    Although I personally don't like AMD's drivers (weak on features such as PhysX, mediocre OpenGL support and no editable custom AA/AO flags), I have to admit that they do generally make solid graphics cards at decent prices. They also tend to lead in terms of VRAM, with the HD 6950/6970 having 2 GB when NVIDIA's own GTX 570/580 had 1.25-1.5 GB and the HD 7950/7970 having 3 GB when NVIDIA's own GTX 670/680 had 2 GB. They've only just caught up with the GTX 780 offering 3 GB but I wouldn't be surprised if AMD's next high-end cards have 4 GB. Hopefully they will be priced at a more reasonable sub-£400 pricepoint.

    This.

    Also they piss on the people who buy cards at release, they always do a free game a month or so after release and never backdate them. I got **** all with my 680 and I paid 500+ quid for it at release.

    same happened to 780/titan users.

    I suppose AMD's Steamroller will make a big difference for them, especially with their APUs. If it's as good as it's supposed to be, AMD might start closing up the margin against intel.

    I do find it rather sad that so many intel graphics chips are the most popular on steam. Its no wonder why PC gaming is so unpopular. I'm also surprised so many people own sandy bridge, ivy bridge, and haswell chips.

    I wonder why Intel cares about making GPUs. Sure they get to charge a little bit extra, but their chips are overpriced anyway and I think including their GPUs is hurting the PC market more than helping. I don't see what intel ever gained when it came to making their own IGPs. Without a discrete solution, they were never obligated to supply graphics. They basically just pushed away companies that were never going to threaten their income in the first place, such as VIA or nvidia. Sure VIA makes x86 CPUs but they don't even stand a chance replacing AMD. AMD is the only company that would give intel an incentive to create IGPs, but that was only the case when they made their first APU.
