https://howtomine.co/2018/01/11/top-5-best-amd-cpu-monero/Graphics cards get the majority of the attention when it comes to mining crypto coins, so I was impressed when I discovered what a beast AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 1950X could be at chewing through Cryptonight, an algorithm designed for CPU mining. Specifically for a processor's L3 cache. Beyond achieving speeds of up to or beyond 1400 H/s which makes it as profitable as an Nvidia GTX 1080 on services like Nicehash, it does so utilizing half of its 32 threads.
As you scan this list, you’ll notice a common theme: they’re all AMD chips within the Ryzen product line. As I created this list, I considered many high-end Intel chips (such as the Xeon series). However, either these chips were too impractical to get at impractical prices and/or they were so expensive that, although some were better than, for example, the Ryzen 1600X, you’d be better off just buying the Ryzen 1700 instead.
What's the reason for half rate DP? It only makes sense on 1080 Ti/Vega 64 cards, if that. 1/2 rate DP means less available for gaming FP resources.In order to help get Radeon back in the hands of users and developers alike I have been hoping we would see at least two things:
1. High Performance APU for laptops with vGPU capability and 1/2 rate DP on the iGPU as options. (Ideally available in an open source manufactured Linux laptop as well.)
2. Harvested Polaris 12 with DDR4 (possibly even using Chinese DDR4).
Didn't they add China to steam about the same time as that drop. I strongly suspect no one in China uses AMD.AMD's Share for GPU in Steam Survey has recently dropped by half though (after being stable for quite some time):
I strongly suspect this is because their cards are very desirable for mining, rather than some problem with the accuracy of the Steam Survey.
Yeah, I think this article shows data right up to a major change in market share between AMD and Intel. AMD probably has more than 12% of the market by now. mindfactory is showing AMD in a much-more competitive light when it comes to total sales (but not total revenues since the Intel chips tend to cost more).It would be interesting to see how much those numbers change after Q4 2018, given the 14nm capacity constraints for Intel and the RTX series being in short supply for nVidia.
According to Mercury Research, AMD's processor share has grown to 12.3 percent in 2Q18Yeah, I think this article shows data right up to a major change in market share between AMD and Intel.

AMD vs. NV, I do not expect AMD to look good at all for awhile, and I think the data from the OP paints too-rosy a picture. At least on the consumer market anyway.
Q3 is where we'll see the most movement from shortages. I think the data I was seeing from mindfactory was from August, and it was showing AMD having over 50% in terms of sales (but not revenue). There's a thread about that around here somewhere . . .According to Mercury Research, AMD's processor share has grown to 12.3 percent in 2Q18
That's a lot more than I would expect.According to Jonpeddie Research, AMD had a gpu market share of 36.1% in 2Q 2018.
