Ehm have a look again at the numbers,AMD lost .5% total market share in q3, and probably a substantial percentage of the dGPU market to Nvidia.
AMD gained Total marketshare from 12.3% in Q2 to 12.6% in Q3 while NVIDIA remained at the same 16.1%.
AMD gained 2.7% in Desktop marketshare
AMD only lost market share in Mobile.
Even ignoring the facts, a shift of a few percentages for a quarter is not going to be reflected in installed user base surveys like steam. The math doesn't work that way.
The fact is that AMD gained marketshare in Q3 in Desktop were the vast majority of Steams Hardware Survey DX-12 GPUs are counted for, but its the NVIDIA DX-12 GPUs that are increasing there share in Steam Hardware Survey.
That is why Steam Hardware Survey doesnt reflect Quartelly GPU shipments and should not be used for this.
