I'd be interested to see how AMD's Q3 results compare. Do we have those available? I did a quick google but only found estimates.
Still, these results are pretty much "as espected" for me; at least as far as GeForce and Quadro/Tesla are concerned. The Tegra results are pleasantly surprising, and I'm glad to see nV doing well.
Marketplaces thrive on competition; I hope when I read AMD's results, they're equally positive for the most part. Something tells me they won't be, though. A marketplace with no competition is one that does not promote innovation, and that is bad for everybody.
Q2, not Q3. We do have AMD's data from the last period.
AMD faces some significant challenges. Their GPU business is a bit over a third the size of Nvidia's, and the the new FirePro cards need some significant driver oomph to challenge Quadro.
>> AMD faces some significant challenges.
Yep. Even in the Linux world, where AMD has been a lot more open and forthcoming with specs, they still seem to lag behind. I'm hoping they come up with something revolutionary soon - before nVidia makes them irrelavent. The competition between those two companies has been one of the things really driving improvements in the video market (across the board, regardless of OS).
