    Very impressive. Nvidia needs a strong competitor in face of AMD, however i do hope that Nvidia will further continue to innovate and improve their quality.

    They have no competition on high end card, and 1060 was a huge success, at least in my country !
    Hoping that AMD will not make the same mistake with ZEN as they did with GPU.

    agree, and on pro segment either, nearly 100% are quadro and tesla.

    on in-vehicle product they are alone :)

    and since AMD RX4** they are omnipresent on lower segment too.

    Automotive growth is going to increase big time over the next year. Audi, Volvo & Tesla are all using Nvidia for their autopilot systems now - and I'm sure the Audi implementation will bleed over into Volkswagen and all the companies they own.

    I also really think with the Datacenter growth + increasing demands for AI/Neural systems, Nvidia will most likely split it's GPU architecture. Competitors like Intel are starting to tailor hardware specifically for those tasks. They've already kind of started with GP100, but I think they will take it even further with GV100 and whatever is after that.

    Good to see it was a wise choice to buy stocks in Nvidia when i did!

    The OEM selling the card pockets that money, not Nvidia.

    That being said, Nvidia does have high margins on it's chips. The GTX1080 is only ~25% larger then an RX480 but it's selling for more than twice as much.

    Now push faster gpus out already, instead of greeding away..

    CUDA has been the best investment that NVIDIA has ever done. It holds academia by the balls, it is an impressive piece of code and it needs some more open ended competition.

    This is why Nvidia has been pushing prices up they can't gain any more market share so raising prices is the only way to make more sadly.

    People are surprised that a company that sells products that people want to buy is profitable?

    Good for them, but then again it's not surprising at all. Everything from 1060 and up was dominated by nvidia. And I'm sure this was only a fraction of the increased profits.

    AMD is always going to be the poor mans alternative.

    Nvidia will always be ahead of the game(because they spend silly money on R&D) but hopefully AMD can at least close the gap a wee bit.

    Zen will no doubt close the gap somewhat to Intel but at the end of the day if you won the lotto would you go for Zen or 20 core i7 xxxx X.

    8c 16t Zen better be a fighter or it's bad news for all of us. I doubt the first wave of Zen will even be that good. It'll need a few years for better stepping and later revision with higher clocks.

    AMD GPU are right now more expensive in more and more countries than their equivalent in NVidia (in here only the RX480 is 20 Euro less than GTX 1070).

    also Intel have more power per core and wipe AMD's price equivalent in most case.

    I remember few ago i was blaming AMD for their poor driver... Now that they work great, they have risen the price...

    it's no more poor man 's product :(

    There is nothing like the RX 470 out there. They also tend to give you more hardware that tends to "last" longer, largely because they own the console cycle.
    The 6GB of the 1060' are already feeling a bit constrained to me.

    Well i'll be damned... mind you its no surprise that Nvidia is growing.

    Whats surprising are the numbers, huge numbers, and where they're coming from.
    Namely gaming 60% up from already record q2 wtffff. Nintendo deal has to be there, right?

    Here in Our Country, GTX 1060 is cheaper than RX 480. The only reason to go for RX 480 here is to pair it with a cheaper FreeSync Monitor.

    If they sold the same amount of GPUs, or a bit more, at +50% percent markup, you have the +60% on gaming.

    Seeing how apart from the 16nm chip, the PCB of even a Titan X is not much more complicated than a 5-year old 7970, they probably make a killing with each part.

    NVIDIA engineers have enabled this, and nobody else. Getting so much performance out of things so cheaply produced.
