Yeah.

Jon Peddie Research (JPR) recently published a 'Market Watch' update on state of the GPU markets, and shared an associated blog post. The latest report tallies up Q4 2019 shipments, and compares the figures with those from the previous quarter (QoQ), and from the corresponding quarter in the previous year (YoY).
The main findings of JPR's latest report can be seen illustrated graphically above. From that small chart one can see an uptrend in AMD's market share, taking customers from Nvidia. Meanwhile Intel's trend direction line is less well defined.

In discrete GPU trends rather than overall trends, which is probably of more interest to HEXUS readers, AMD moved up to 27 per cent from 26 per cent last year, and 24 per last quarter. Meanwhile, Nvidia still has a pretty comfortable 73 per cent of the market at last count.

Jon Peddie, President of JPR, had a comment to share on the new figures. "This is the third consecutive quarter of increased GPU shipments, However, Q1 which is seasonally flat to down may show an unusual dip because of supply chain interruptions from China due to the Coronavirus epidemic," pointed out Mr Peddie. "2020 is going to be a game-changer with Intel’s entry into the discrete GPU market and a possible fourth entry by an IP company."

Highlights of the latest JPR Market Watch report are as follows:

  • AMD's overall unit shipments increased 22.6% quarter-to-quarter, Intel’s total shipments increased 0.2% from last quarter, and Nvidia’s decreased -1.9%
  • The overall attach rate of GPUs (includes integrated and discrete GPUs) to PCs for the quarter was 130% which was up 1.8% from last quarter
  • Discrete GPUs were in 31.9% of PCs, which is down -0.19% from last quarter
  • The overall PC market increased by 1.99% quarter-to-quarter and increased by 3.54% year-to-year
  • Desktop graphics add-in boards (AIBs) that use discrete GPUs increased 12.17% from last quarter
  • Q4'19 saw an increase in tablet shipments from last quarter
Looking to the next reported quarter - which we are currently living through - JPR is looking at semiconductor industry guidance of minus 9 per cent on average, weighing seasonality and the Covid-19 effect. However, offsetting this somewhat is PC vendor optimism for the quarter, with an average expectation of a 7 per cent increase in shipments.
It's growing. More competition is a good thing. I'd like their big navi to be on par with Nvidia's gpu's so we can have more competition and, in the end, lower prices.

Because if you have some quality paste, like noctu one, which is dense, you take the cooler with CPU stuck on to cooler base.
You're not supposed to just yank the cooler off the CPU, no matter if you're using Intel or AMD. You twist it from side to side to loosen it, then slide it off.

I never use thermal paste that comes with coolers. The first thing I do is use some rubbing alcohol and remove that stock paste.
But stickiness shouldn't be a problem. Just run some benchmarks, turn off the pc and proceed to take the heatsink off. Always worked for me. Even on artic silver. which is the most sticky paste I've ever seen.
If it doesn't wanna go, you just lightly rotate it till it breaks. I don't see how can this be a problem.

Yes I obviously done that, but it still manged to be attached to cooler base. Issue with larger coolers is that you often does not have enough wiggle room and that creates this issue. Sure I could upgrade the case, but one I have is sturdy and get's the job done, so why bother.

Me neither, I used this:

I find that a bit hard to believe. If you slide the cooler sideways off the CPU, then the CPU literally can't stick to it, unless you somehow manage to rip out the socket itself and destroy your board in the process.

Obviously due to space I cannot do that I twist it and when I saw like and half of IHS to be visible I pulled and still it was enough. AM4 socket is really not that secure, whet it comes to this. It just hold CPU firmly. But I am not use to that after many yeas on intel.

as far as I love amd
their middle-high end gpu side still has many homework to do

their driver is a piece of crap, also not to mention the vega and navi blackscreen fiasco, if I were to buy a new middle tk high end graphic card today, I would choose nvidia for stability and reliability for now, even it is more expensive

I am really happy for this news but I really really hope they could fix things in the future

I agree. They really should do more work on their drivers. It's really a piece of shit, and this is coming from an amd fan.
But seeing how their ryzen cpu's are succeseful and their tech is in next gen consoles, I think they now have the cash for the RND side of things. I think they can really strike a blow at amd this time around.
