Yeah... I didn't make myself clear on that one... Derp. lol
I meant in retrospect of entry level, mid range and high end gaming cards, not integrated solutions (I consider some low end entry level discrete cards in this category) of which most of the market is saturated with. Nvidia basically stopped focusing on integrated solutions since they find it hard to compete against Intel and just stuck with their niche market segment of gaming, professional and GPGPU cards. And I was thinking in terms of over the last 3 years as AMD have been steadily taking market share in those arena's from nvidia, mostly in the entry and mid range.
Plus, AMD's profit margins on their products aren't nearly as good as nvidia's counterparts. I don't want to sound like a fan boy because I do own both AMD and nvidia cards, but out of the two and price/performance/features were the same or similar, I'd pick nvidia... for CUDA. Even AMD's new 7k series isn't very good with OpenCL of what I've heard, but I donno if there's truth to this or not.
AMD had those huge layoffs what 12-18 months ago? Intel and nvidia are still hiring and aren't hurting for money.
king in the GPU world
I meant that as "is still considered" king.. blah blah blah.
Even then, nvidia cards are vastly more superior with GPGPU calculations and they just dominate the pro market even though they are "technically" inferior to the more modern cards. You also don't have to hold a high % of the market share to be considered the leader in your industry. Case in point... Apple. yes yes... bad bad bad bad bad... booooooooooooo
