AMD Supposedly Regains Slight GPU Market Share from NVIDIA

It was reported just around a month ago that AMD lost considerable GPU market share to NVIDIA, with the company claiming only 18 percent of all add-in-board shipments in the second quarter of this year. It looks like AMD may be turning the unfortunate situation around, as Barron’s, an American financial magazine that provides in-depth analysis and commentary on the markets, has reported that AMD has regained a very small piece of the total market share concerning GPUs. Barron’s uses analysis that involves the tracking of discrete GPU prices over various time periods, and notes that concerning the third quarter of this year, AMD cards found within the $200 and $400 range are selling at or above MSRP. Meanwhile, NVIDIA cards are sold below their MSRP and generally feature rebate offers of up to $60. This analysis concludes that AMD is regaining market share over NVIDIA, since it is able to sell its cards to consumers at their suggest value instead of at deep discounts just to entice sales.

With the third quarter of this year still having around two weeks left, and no hard data being provided in terms of percentages, time will tell if NVIDIA market share is actually slipping as Barron’s analysis shows.

No hard data to back up the analysis, as noted in last sentence of article. Additionally, Q3 isn't over, so that creates a problem too. Technically I could pick any given day and look at sales/prices and determine who has more market share, lol.

If you cannot meet demand then prices escalate.  Been a strategy of theirs since the 5000 series. Who remembers trying to find a 5870 even 6 months after the launch?

Without how many units are moving of each, pricing doesn't matter at all. You can price them to the moon and they won't sell...that doesn't mean you're doing well.

Shipments of discrete graphics adapters for desktops were 9.4 million units in Q2 2015,.. with Nvidia outselling AMD three to one.

But we already know about GPU market share from the second quarter of this year. We're concerned about the third quarter, and wondering if AMD gained anything back from NVIDIA. :P

Not sure that they are with the short supply of Fury and Nano parts and the HBM shortage.
