  1. Hmm ok. I understand now. Yes I suppose I agree. Good post, good points!

    A little surprised to see AMD so low. Don't they usually have pretty good offerings in the budget category?

    Better driver support for the last few years, too. I'm also surprised. I figured they'd have at least 35 percent of the market. Must be that blockbuster long list of 8 whole titles running ray tracing in some form that can't get playable frames in 4k that got all of us to the green side. I'm guilty.
     
  4. Apple contracts and consoles have got to be helping hold that 20?

    EDIT: Ah poop forget that. I'm confusing DGPUs with SOCs now

    I bought a string of nvidia cards when they didn't bend you over a barrel and now I am not interested in paying their prices. AMD was the better option this time by a country mile. Yes, I guess that's funny.

    Many people felt that they would be missing on something if they had card unable to do DX-R. Many bought DX-R enabled card that was not very good at it. And with Next gen, many more DX-R cards will become too weak.
