Over the past year, miners and gamers have "lowered" to video cards 776 million dollars

Analysts of the company Jon Peddie Research (JPR) have prepared a report in which they published data concerning sales of AMD and NVIDIA video cards. According to the information provided in the document, last year AMD managed to increase the production of graphics adapters and reduce the gap in sales with NVIDIA, its closest competitor.

According to analysts from Jon Peddie Research (JPR), in just about 2017, about 3 million video cards were sold, the amount of which was about 776 million dollars. JPR notes that by the end of the year AMD increased sales of its products by 8.1 percent, while NVIDIA reduced this figure by about 6 percent for a number of reasons, one of which is the lack of components needed to produce top-end graphics cards.

From the JPR report it follows that most of the purchased video cards still fall on gamers, and not miners , although the percentage of the latter is also very large. Analysts are sure that the demand for video cards among gamers will only increase, while the miners will prefer dedicated graphics devices, so by the end of the year the share of gamers among video card users will only increase.

As a percentage, the demand for graphics adapters in the fourth quarter is difficult to forecast, but judging by the dynamics, the layout will be about the same as last year. Supplies GPU in the fourth quarter of 2017 decreased by 1.5 percent, and for the whole year decreased by almost 4.8 percent.

"Despite the fact that the main consumers of video cards still remain gamers, those who buy these devices for the production of crypto-currencies, continue to influence the market of components not in the best way," JPD noted, "so high prices for high-end graphics adapters nowhere, unfortunately, will not go away.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100 sure Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated Cheers
