    Maybe they weren't BSing with the whole highly scalable mantra. Huge news for AMD non the less, considering both Nvidia and Intel failed to get any traction in mobile space.

    It's even bigger news given that AMD exited GPU IP licensing business ages ago.

    Literally the last thing I'd ever expected them to do

    I'm pretty sure it says
    That's a very-very clear statement

    True. But AMD has yet to tell everybody what is exactly RDNA compared to GCN (or what defines GCN for that matter.... :rolleyes:)

    Actually I'm pretty sure it wasn't many gens ago when AMD said they'd be willing to license their graphics IP out, not just do semi-customs. Also there were rumors about Samsung licensing AMD gfx IP already in 2016.

    I run several & many gaming rigs. A mismatch of sockets, memories, cards, etc.

    And I prefer AMD's Radeon Driver Suite over Nvidia's Geforce Experience. It is just a better over-all experience(installing/uninstalling. And as new games have to be patched on (again) several different gaming systems, for each patch/release, things seems to be much smoother of an experience with AMD. Nvidia driver's always messed with audio & other system set ups, etc. It never use to be this way 5-6 years ago Nvidia had much polish and solid stuff. I would like to add that nVidia's driver package's intrusive nature, is off-putting. AMD's driver suite is inviting and welcomed.

    My perspective.

    super-SIMD...
    Meaning it can do both GCN and/or RDNA simultaneously... similar in concept to what a-sync compute is, but for libs.

    GCN compute + RDNA = Navi.

    AMD Starts Selling Ryzen 9 3900X and Radeon RX 5700 directly to consumers

    It's a good move from consumer point of view as that should ensure somewhat close to MSRP pricing across all shops during product launches. I fully expect later in a product life to get better deals through resellers due to how market works.

    I'm happy with that!
    Also notice AMD only sells select products directly, clearly they don't want to anger their partners too much.

    Worth noting that they list prices without VAT, VAT will be added once you get to the final stages of ordering.

    True, but they add VAT relevant to your country of residence.

    What I was expecting with 3900X shortages was price gouging from known etailers, but we had almost none! This is a really welcome side effect of that approach from AMD.

    Jon Peddie Research has released its Q2 2019 GPU market results, and it's official: AMD shipped more graphics unit than Nvidia for the first time in five years, thanks to AMD shipping almost 9.85% more GPUs than in Q1 (by comparison, Nvidia sold about the same). The market share data represents cumulative shipments of all types of desktop PC graphics units, including those present in processors, which is an area that Nvidia doesn't have a significant market presence.

    This bit I found interesting...

    PC market grew while discrete graphics shipments fell. IMO, the high price of Turing cards is shrinking the PC gaming market. High prices are good for NV's revenue and profits, but aren't doing anything to encourage people to continue gaming on PC. In fact, it's likely doing the exact opposite in pushing people to go console instead.

    It's amusing that NV only focuses on how much revenue Turing brings in when making comparisons, and almost never mentions units shipped. If NV can make more money off of fewer people, that's all good to them.

    Regards,
    SB

    That's the effect of Ryzen APUs finally catching up, after many years of AMD not having competitive CPU designs.

    I think that's the effect of seasonality, Q2 is normally the weakest.

    In Q1 NVIDIA shipped way more than AMD. I think we are seeing the effect of some sort of late inventory clearance.

    Q4 2018: NVIDIA 81%, AMD 18%

    Q1 2019: NVIDIA 77%, AMD 22%
    Q2 2019: NVIDIA 68%, AMD 32%

    According to the JPR PR it's caused by raise of desktop discrete units (add in board). AMD's discrete GPU market share was 22,7 % (Q1 2019), now it's 32,1 %.
