I certainly don't think that they should compete more aggressively at the low end. There is little money making $30 GPUs.
AMD, on the other, has little choice but to sell all they can at any price above COGS just for cash flow. It's a rough place for them to be, and I don't think they can ever climb out from that pit.
is it just an add on to GPU or can it replace them..think it just enhances gpu and cpu..quote ' we are still buying tons of of them'(cpu's&gpu's) google executive.
I think Nvidia is doing an awesome job on focusing on ONE GPU architecture that they can scale throughout all their platforms and target levels. They focus on providing the best performance per watt, which will enable them to win in each of them. There will also be an 1060 and 1050, so I dont think Nvidia conceedes any of the business worth participating in. But ofc NVDA will not dump their inventory just to compete on price with AMD.
Can you elaborate on why you think they should compete more on the low margin stuff?
No, I meant Nvidia.
Dominating the market is dangerous. It's easy money. Every other line of potential business looks risky and lower margin. It's too easy to be too conservative in the core business and under-invest in related business, while putting too much money into the "next big thing" which starts looking like the only business that retains high margins.
now we're getting it...you're not an investor, amd 90% from all time highs, nvidia approx 900% UP ftom all time lows...amd good, nvidia bad dude! lol
but, but, but, isn't Integrated graphics supposed to meet everyone's needs and take over the world? LOL
“While the need for advanced GPU technology has commonly been associated with the usage of 3D applications, as enterprises make the move to software like Windows 10, Office 365, and other SaaS and web apps, IT departments will increasingly seek the benefits of GPU acceleration to provide everyday business tools to all of their users, ”said Robert Young, analyst for IT Service Management and Client Virtualization Software at IDC"
Nvidia dominates the high end and only sells at a profit at the low end. How is that "fudgeing (sic) their numbers"? AMD is stuck cleaning out their stock at the unprofitable low end.
This is dangerous in the long run. Nvidia is becoming like Intel, where they don't need to put the R&D into the next generation. But right now it's very profitable.
