For years Intel has been dominating CPU the market, charging a premium for their products. However, with the recent success of AMD, the market has only become more competitive. AMD made a picturesque comeback. In 2012, the company had claims of losing over $1 billion, which entirely wiped out its previous two years gains, but bow the company is whisking higher profits year-on-year. Still, AMD is shining. However, on the CPU market, its Ryzen PC CPUs and EPYC server CPUs, both built on Zen architecture with the cutting-edge manufacturing process from a third-party shop, has Intel improvising to keep the more substantial portion of the market share. While on the GPU side, the company is again competitive in this ultra-high-end market. This success emanates from the massive difference between the prices of their products. For example, the Ryzen 9 3950X was priced at $749 at launch. While Intel’s Core i9-10980XE was priced at $979, this was after cutting down to fit in their pricing strategy.
The competitive price of the 2017 processor was $1,999. Those premium price strategies would have worked in 2017 when AMD was trying to make a name with its first-gen Ryzen chips. However, not today. With AMD offering consumers high-quality core at prices that make Intel’s earlier high-end products look like a gimmick, something they had to undercut severely. Hence, it led to Intel price cuts as a means to sustain its position or ‘a position’ in the market.
 
At the other end of the market, AMD also made some made large pocket holes on NVIDIA’s substantial GPU market share. This happened as a success of the RX 5000 series. AMD launched two RX 5700 series cards last July, priced at $349 and $399, respectively. Besides, AMD strongly believes that the RX 5600XT overtakes NVIDIA GTX 1600 Ti, even at the same price. NVIDIA responded with slashing the price of a higher spec graphics card. Sadly it was the RTX 2060, with ray-tracing tech feature. However, they couldn’t set the price for $299, but with an added $20 more than AMD’s RX 5600 XT.
 
However, no one knows the actual performance of both cards yet, so one thing is for sure that the underdog, AMD, is taking some fight to the doorsteps of these giants. Nonetheless, it’s always the consumer that wins at the end, with a slew of options to pick from ultimately.
 
Totally agree with this article as in the end the consumer wins.

    Oh wow.look at that. Yet in the other thread someone said i didn't know what i was.talking about go figures🙄🤦.
    Good find. Take that nonbelievers.

    P.S.:

    Told ya 😼

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    AMD has not forced lower Prices on Nvidia high end cards ... because they still lack any that compete on the highend
     
    They have Nvidia squeezing margins on the low & mid market ... 2060  -- thats good for consumers
     
    AMD is making the CPU market move ... great for consumers
     
    The article was poorly worded / written but the message is still there ... AMD has arisen from the ashes & consumers have more choices

    Nice to see. Let’s hope that the performance is there when these are released.

    Would be nice to see some competition on the high-end market with some pricing pressure on Nvidia.

    once Intel's GPU hits the street then the pricing will be disrupted even more so

    Not yet, you ll see they are next. AMD is.playing the Donkey Kong game with Nvidia.

    that is why i am going to go BACK to AMD.  Intel has charged to much for far to long, and now that AMD has been giving Intel a kick in the ass in the way or Price to Performance, its time for me to say good pay and go back to what i liked when i started building systems for my self.  
    Yes intel is and has been a good brand, but as for Price it is a little over bearing in a way, that intel has made much off its users.  that its a good thing that AMD is going NO NO no more.  time for a change ..

    I find the whole concept of AMD keeping Intel and Nvidia honest to be silly. No consumer products are honest. They need to be competitive though.

    I love competition...
     
    Intel is a gigantic entity tho...I'm not sure if AMD is wholly to 'thank' or 'blame' for price cuts...tho I'm sure it's partially
    responsible.
