AMD GPUs are outselling Nvidia

A report by Jon Peddie Research (JPR) has found that AMD sold more PC graphics cards than Intel did in the fourth quarter of 2019.

According to the research, AMD shipments increased by 22.6%, while Nvidia's decreased by 1.9%.

Because if you want the fastest card AMD hasn't had and still don't have anything to compete at the top end.

That's all good and all in a race. When buying time comes paying double the amount for a product that's slightly faster does not make sense.

Its not that Nvidia were slightly ahead, they were miles ahead of AMD.
The gap is getting smaller, but AMD still don't have anything to challenge Nvidia in the high end market.
At the end of the year I'm getting the best card I can afford and I'm not expecting AMD to bring anything stronger than Nvidia has out before then.

Tell that to all the people who insist on buying Intel CPU's.

AMD has nothing close to the RTX 2080 Ti. High-end gamers have no choice but Nvidia.

Fortunately, my monitor is 1440p and only 60Hz, on account of being a professional monitor that focuses on colour accuracy, so something like the Radeon RX 5700 XT is perfect for me.

I say something like, because I'll wait for the next round of AMD cards before upgrading. I don't expect to have time for games for a while anyway.

Let's not mention those with a 2080ti only to game at 1080p 60hz..

And to add, Nvidia Gamestream.
Well, AMD does have Link and it is slowly making progress. I have a idea that Nvidia is going to shake up the market with their next series. Currently they are already competing a bit too tightly with AMD in the entry to mid tiers. I doubt that there will be any price reduction with their halo products, unless AMD gets something out sooner than later.

Not slightly faster, quite a bit faster. AMD has nothing to remotely compete with the 2080ti, a card that is a year and half old. Big Navi will need to make a massive leap for AMD to be back in the conversation. Especially with NV releasing their 7nm cards this year.

The high end market is niche.

AMD offers better value for money for 99% of PC users.

Let Nvidia go chase the research institutions.

99% of PC users don't need the 2080ti (I say that as a EVGA 2080ti user)

The high end trickles down to the lower end. Having the fastest card works fantastically for marketing.
