AMD’s just happily shared some good news for the once leading graphics card brand. According to research firm Mercury Research, AMD’s share of the discrete graphics market increased by 3.2 per cent quarter on quarter. This takes AMD’s total market share to 29.4 per cent.
Breaking it down further, this is made up of a 1.8 per cent increase in desktop graphics, to 22.7 per cent, and rather impressive jump of 7.3 per cent in discrete notebook graphics. That total share is no 38.7 per cent of the market.
According to Mercury Research, this increase is based on a combination of the new R9 GPUs, and AMD’s increased focus on driver development.
So, out of curiosity, have any of you switched from Team Green to Team Red recently?
