In the latest GPU market stats divided by TechEpiphany (from Mindfactory), NVIDIA GPUs represent 60% of sales, while AMD GPUs account for 39% of sales. The revenue split is also similar, but the important thing to note is that AMD’s ASP is on the rise, meaning big profit margins for the red team. it’s likely that this downward price trend for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 and AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards won’t stop here, and we expect more price cuts to happen soon as we head towards the launch of the next-gen -Cards.
