Sources at Taiwanese graphics card makers told DigiTimes that AMD is expected to increase its marketshare in the global GPU market to 40 percent over the next half year. That doesn't really sound impressing though considering AMD had a marketshare of 38 percent in Q2 2013, according to Jon Peddie's figures.
AMD announced net profits of US$48 million for the third quarter with notebook-related shipments dropping significantly and revenues from GPUs also declining. However, the company's sales from customized products and stable desktop shipments helped the company to turn profitable.
Although most market watchers are conservative about AMD's performance in the fourth quarter, some expect the company's graphics card business to be able to prop up its profit performance for the quarter.
