Default Nvidia Slowly Becoming a Monopoly?

Kind of makes me think of this... Of course we're not there yet but in a few years, who knows...

we can prevent this by choosing and purchasing more AMD cards.

AMD will be stuck in the mid range with their polaris cards for years. We have more rumors of 7nm versions now. I wanted one large AMD GPU for my red build but I was forced to opt NVIDIA.

Yes, great idea, reward poor performance with hard earned money just to chase the benevolent duty to support inferior companies.

To each his own.

AMD could prevent this, but they choose to build inferior hardware and write second rate drivers instead.

Choose not to?

Certainly they cant match Nvidia at the high end, nor in R+D or prob software. But saying they choose not to is akin to saying India (or most other countries) choose not to match the USA in their space programs. There is no choice. But they do well with what they have.

Before I get flamed my last 2 cards are Nvidia. My enjoyment of DCS trumps any idealism I have about video card makers. But lets not bash AMD unnecessarily.

Nvidia are not becoming a monopoly. They are at the moment outclassing the opposition. Therefore the opposition are failing to compete with Nvidia.
Any other perspective is the application of false logic.

Hopefully Intel entering the graphics card space will give the market a swift kick.

Sadly this is true imho.


AMD needs to invest more to compete. They have clearly shown they can with CPU's, so let's hope their 7nm thing will be competitive.


Those Ryzen are the best that happened last 2 years, tho I run an Intel.
