AMD has again proven its prowess in the graphics card market by leaving its rival NVIDIA behind, as revealed by the company’s smashing numbers for the first quarter of 2020 shown in the Jon Peddie Research. The Jon Peddie Research released a report on the graphics processing units in which AMD has nearly 31 percent of the market share in the Q1 2020.
AMD Leaving NVIDIA Behind with Cost-Effective GPU Offerings
AMD’s progress is extremely impressive, considering last year’s market share for the same time, which was at 22.7 percent. The change in numbers in just one year shows that NVIDIA has lost a significant market share from its competitor AMD.
1] AMD’s Impressive Growth
NVIDIA has always been a stronger player in the technology for GPU. However, AMD just broke the records with its new NAVI family of GPU, which works on the 7-nanometer RDNA structure. Its Radeon RX 5700 graphics adaptor and cards were released around a year back, cost-effective, and gave higher performance than the NVIDIA cards. Experts consider this as one of the there is a substantial growth in AMD’s market share in the GPU market in 2020 as of now.

2] Efficient and budget-friendly processors
AMD had always adopted the strategy of cost-effective processors to the users, dating back to 2016 when it offered the Polaris cards, which were budget-friendly. Even the RX 5700 graphics cards, which were launched a year ago, were also cost-effective, thereby establishing the fact that AMD is taking the same strategy for the mid-range GPU market.
3] The impressive combination of high performance and cost
The company is successful in delivering impressive costing and high-performance combination when it comes to graphics cards as compared to NVIDIA since it has a state-of-the-art manufacturing process. The RDNA architecture from AMD works on the 7nm process, while the current Turing graphics card from NVIDIA works on the 12nm process.
4] Great technology behind cost-effective manufacturing
Technically, the smaller manufacturing node in a graphics card entails smaller transistors on the chip that are closely combined. The arrangement heightens the computing capacity of the chip, along with less power consumption. The lower cost of manufacturing is ensured due to the die size being reduced.
5] NVIDIA pacing up to get back its lost market share
Nvidia is gearing for the competition with its new graphics cards to be launched soon that could work on the 7nm process. The Ampere architecture cards are likely to be released by the fourth quarter of 2020, giving AMD a run for its increased market share.
