If you are a PC gamer, it’s fairly obvious that you have engaged in at least 2 or 3 arguments about Nvidia being better than AMD or the opposite. Accept it, we’ve all been there, the battle between red and green have been going on for a long time, in fact as long as the time when ATI GPUs were available under AMD’s division. There was a time Nvidia GPUs were deemed expensive and power-hungry, however, with the advent of Nvidia’s 600 series, things started to take a different turn and now, Nvidia is known for providing several of the best GPUs in the market that beat any price/performance ration you’ll see.
After the successful launch of Maxwell based 900 series last year, Nvidia is enjoying quite a dominance over the competition. Yes, AMD tried really good with the R9 300 series, however, the results weren’t as satisfying. The GPUs couldn’t deliver the price performance ration given by the GTX 970 and 980. Consumers had their hopes up because AMD was planning on releasing the Fury X but upon release, even that GPU failed to tackle Nvidia’s latest GTX 980Ti.
According to latest research, it has been concluded that Nvidia’s dominance in discrete GPU market went from 77 percent to 82 percent in the second quarter of this year as compared to the fourth quarter of last year. This means that AMD went from 23 to 18 percent. In simpler words, 4 out of 5 PC users are now running PCs powered by Nvidia GPUs. Below is a graph to further explain the things.
