Nvidia continues to dominate the graphics card market, despite the difficulties this market has experienced over the past year.
AMD is its main competitor in this market. Despite their efforts, they offer more value for money. However, the difference between the two companies is very big.
NVIDIA’s share of the graphics processor market increased between the second quarter of 2020 and the second quarter of 2021 by 3%. While AMD has lost the same amount of market share in the same period. Which, in theory, means she stole it from AMD.
The green giant holds 83% of the discrete graphics card market. While AMD accounts for only 17%. As for the graphics processor market in general, Intel alone controls 68% of it, since every processor from Intel comes with an integrated graphics card.
in general, Achieve The graphics card market grew in sales by 3.4% compared to the previous year.

Nvidia and the graphics card market
AMD has been very successful in recent years. Especially since it is engaged in the manufacture and development of graphics and central processors as well, unlike Nvidia.
The Ryzen CPU platform has managed to outperform Intel in more ways than one. As it offers better performance and is based on 7nm manufacturing precision, it offers more value for money.
But AMD’s engineering superiority did not guarantee success in the graphics card market. This clearly shows in the decline in its market share.

NVIDIA graphics cards feature DLSS technology, which improves performance in games based on artificial intelligence techniques and the Tensor cores found in RTX cards.
AMD has tried to offer a competing technology, FSR. However, this technology has proven to be weak compared to competing DLSS technology and does not perform close to it.
Perhaps the great advantage of DLSS technology is due to the reliance on artificial intelligence, an area in which Nvidia excels in general. She has been able to train the DLSS AI model for many years. Whereas competing AMD technology is based on relatively old algorithms.
Because of Nvidia’s great control in this area, it is able to convince game developers to support its technologies as quickly as possible, such as DLSS technology, and there is no doubt that cooperation with it is a great priority for developers compared to AMD. This is due to the large differences in market shares.

In addition to the above, users have experienced a severe scarcity of graphics cards in recent months. This is due to the Covid-19 pandemic on the one hand, and the demand for cards by miners on the other hand.
This has prompted users to turn to laptops instead of assembling a PC. This is where NVIDIA’s strong control emerged, as most gaming laptops come with cards from NVIDIA already.
