    I was wondering what he thought the graph showed.
    Or perhaps he meant something else.

    I meant the gap of market share between Intel and AMD, which according to that graph will get smaller as AMD gains and Intel loses.

    Good job AMD and keep going up with the CPU market share. Ryzen is a great cpu, only if it could get higher frequencies , then it could even beat Intel CPUs in performance. The prices of the CPUs will not change overnight , but right now with AMD CPUs people get much higher value for their money, while Intel still has high CPU prices as usual.

    I hope they push the limits with this tech and they double down in core count every 2 years. Enough of this core stagnation. The sooner they make cpus with 100 threads the sooner every background process can have a bunch of threads all to itself etc. Once we reach that stage core speed with be next to irrelevant if things are programmed for the new standard by then.

    Unfortunately they have wrongly labelled the graph as "AMD vs Intel Market Share".
    The graph is submissions of hardware used to run their benchmark.
    They show the quarters results before the quarter is over.
    It isnt always a safe measure of the users of their software and certainly not of marketshare.

    Oh, I see. Either way, I'm glad AMD is back on track in the CPU department. It's been years since I even considered going anything other than Intel.

    From what I've heard manufacturing cost is higher on TR boards.

    I'm afraid we will all use cloud computing by then. Just like some Overwatch pro team using high performance cloud gaming solution.

    Thats what ended my AMD days on CPU and I bought 5, maybe 6 AMD CPUs in a row before that.
    They still havent given me reason to change back.

    Daily numbers

    These are Q3 daily numbers for three days: 31%, 24%, 27%

    Q1 = 18.1%
    Q2 = 20.6%

    So Q3 off to a bang for AMD, with OEMs building Ryzen systems now, not just DIY.

    So far looking like high 20s for Q3, doubling the gains from Q1 to Q2.

    This article is deceptive at best. How could AMD capture 10% when they weren't even selling a chip under $329 until half way through the quarter? The problem with PC mark is its a self selected survey of not just enthusiasts, but enthusiasts who specifically benchmark their PC's using PC mark software. That is not a good indicator of the overall market.

    The true market share gain is likely somewhere between 1-2%

    Well, since people keep saying that "this means that the market share of passmark users increased for AMD", I'll try to correct this absurd excuse.

    Market research are based on a small amount of people, for instance, for a country with 18 million citizens, it will take about 1500 people to know how your product will perform among the 18 million, the margin of error is VERY small.

    So, AMD did take a lot ( 2-5% is a lot of market share ) of market share from Intel, even if the report comes from a benchmark, steam or pornhub.

    Regards

    Perhaps you can state how reliable an indicator this benchmark presents.
    There must be a reason you put a foundation in it.

    As you are quoting %, how reliable in % is it?

    why do I need a title?

    Passmark chart

    Google "cpubenchmark CPU market share" for the link since I can't paste it in until I have 5 posts, evidently.

    31%, 24%, 27%(26.6 to be exact for today) for the first 3 days of Q3.

    Everyone is mis-reporting it, but first 3 days are really good still.

    Being that gamers using Steam make up a small percentage of the PC market, it should be obvious to anyone with half a brain that Steam hardware survey does not produce accurate numbers.

    That graph is based on PassMark benchmark result submissions. Being that the figures are based on benchmark result submissions, the numbers only mean that more AMD users are submitting results now, compared to last quarter. The figures are completely meaningless in regards to actual market share or sales.

    I mean, is not that crazy to take this information as reliable, it's not extremely accurate, but it is reliable.

    AMD did take an important share from Intel, it's not 10%, but they did take around 2-5%

    Can you prove all of what you just stated as fact?
