AMD vs NVIDIA GPU battle to intensify

Posted on Tuesday, July 15 2008 @ 01:20:15 CEST by

TG Daily talks about the new GPU battle between AMD and NVIDIA and suggests the recent price action is just the beginning. The site reports we can expect a price war as AMD will try to increase its GPU marketshare and NVIDIA tries to hold on to its marketshare.
This years' Back-to-School season will see a level of competition in the graphics industry we haven't seen in years. AMD is in the driver’s seat for now and will be bundling its Radeon 4800 cards with Phenom processors, offering even more savings (an additional $15-30), while Nvidia has to react. AMD’s graphics unit believes that it can hit a market share of 40% (up from 21% in the first quarter) and it will be interesting to see if that will be the case and what Nvidia will do to hang on to its market shares.

The winner, of course, is the consumer. If you were looking to get a new graphics card anyway, you are more than likely to be able to score a great deal this August. Big performance gains appear to be very affordable now.
