A new chart is making the rounds that shows NVIDIA has pulled away from NVIDIA in the discrete graphics card market in Q3 2014. In recent years NVIDIA typically had just over 60 percent of this market and AMD around 40 percent, but the data from Jon Peddie Research shows lackluster demand for AMD's latest video cards pushed the ratio towards 70/30.
NVIDIA have gathered 70 percent of the recent Add-in Board (AiB) market share, marking themselves above their average cruising rate of 60 percent as seen through the graph above. In a bid to get back to 50/50 and retaliation to NVIDIA's powerhouse GeForce GTX 970 and 980 cards, AMD have started cutting the retail pricing of their latest models starting around October 2014. However, with new 9 series cards rumored for release by NVIDIA - we're interested to see how the Q4 results will report.
