    Ouch AMD. Looks like NVIDIA is taking back what it lost.

    Baah it was to be expected:
    560-570-5870 have come faster, without saying the 460-450, 6900 have been launch late on november.. even if im not sure the 560- 570-580 really boost the sell...

    At same time: And in terms of market share, market leader Nvidia increased its share by 3.6% from Q3, while AMD's market share declined -5.2% for the same period. On a year-to-year basis AMD increased its market share by 12.6% while Nvidia lost 6.2% of market share.

    Nvidia still have allways get the lead on this due to extremely high sell of Quadro GPU's and HPC chips. ( Cray for an exemple )

    Q32010 numbers for compare: ( this time with mobile discrete GPU )

    Q42010 numbers and explanation: ( IGP maybe counted on this one )

    Probably due to people not needing to upgrade to play console ports? (<- totally went there)

    nvm helps to read the article lol.

    Is this really news though? Isnt it given that one company will have an upper hand over another some years and that exchanges back and forth?

    Exactly how does AMD lose 5.2% while nVidia only gains 3.6%? There's only 3 "players" in the discrete graphics market....and I don't see S3 taking sales from AMD or nVidia.

    Optimus and Fusion are 2 completely different "technologies"....thus, don't impact each other.

    Fusion = CPU+GPU in same package

    Optimus = technology to use integrated or dedicated graphics dependent on performance needs.
