AMD was already well known,...........to most of us anyways.

That HBM memory reveal didn't translate into more sales. That is the bottom line.

NVIDIA's introduction of the GTX-980Ti on the same day ruined AMD's glory in a big way. 980Ti is faster and priced the same.

AMD may get that recognition for a new style of memory, but they still need to sell a lot more GPUs.

Eh, I guess, I have been beaten many a time today xD

i tend to go intel for cpu and amd for gpu, they pair pretty good. next year would be very exciting. if zen is what it is hyped to be, im going amd and probably pascal. but for now intel and nvidia has the lead in terms of sales and performance.

Thise two have ALWAYS lead sales, they have a strangle hold on the market. They are familiar names and their consistent performance has kept them on top... it will be hard to take their crowns...

Yeah, that coupled with the fact that AMD is their only competitor and they are behind somewhat. So they will probably keep the crown.

you really dont need more than midrange gear unless you want a high res screen or vr. If i were to build a new system now, i would probably go amd to save some money, while getting higher performance parts else-ware. Really i would want to see where Zen positions itself but thats still aways off. Someday i would like to make an all AMD system though.

Well, the decision hinges on what you plan to do with your PC.
