Fanboys / Nvidia haters.You're not wrong, but I have issues with that statement.
What sort of real-world situation would mean someone can only choose from AMD cards?
You'd be amazed how many people like that exist.Outside of personal boycotts and delusions of loyalty in a multi-billion dollar cutthroat duopoly, I can't think of one.
And how small the market for such cards is.
Lets do some fun estimation:
Lets say that:
- ~50 mln PC graphics cards are sold yearly (so without workstation/server stuff)
- 5700XT will be sold for a year.
- it's share among GPUs will be equal to the current figure in Steam Survey (0.16%)
- half of 5700XT sold will be expensive high-end, high-OC models that make no sense (compared to Nvidia's alternatives)
We get 40000 as a (very) rough estimator of how many high-spending, Nvidia-hating gamers we need to sell that many cards. Globally.
