    Huzzah! Finally (a bit of) healthy competition in the GPU and CPU markets.

    I agree with the assessment that having lower end cards is helping, one can get pretty close to maxing out all current titles @ 1080 on a potato, but not with the GTX1050 I bought (and quickly got rid of) cause of its 2 gigs of ram

    the next step up from that in nvidia land was almost 300 bucks at the time meanwhile there was 2 AMD cards sitting between those two saying hey, yea we suck more power, but we got (at least) double the ram so your games wont have a draw distance of a XBOX360

    So what happened to 2016 and 2017 as well as the end of 2015 and the start of 2018?

    No data provided; either JPR didn't track it, or it's excluded for another reason.

    What Gareth said - it's up to JPR when and if they do anything. They're not funded by the people being monitored so there's no onus on them to do anything unless they thing it's news worthy. They choose when to research this stuff and how much of their own effort and energy, finances and resources to spend in it.

    nVidia kicked ass and took names. The End.

    Seriously, that's more or less it. I'd wager they just left the numbers alone and kept an eye open to see if AMD started regaining ground. Because knowing EXACTLY how badly nVidia was ahead of AMD wasn't very important.
    And for people that felt it was important, there was always the Steam Hardware Survey to use as a proxy, though they're incomplete. (Most notably, they don't show buttcoin diggers.)

    But wasn't 2017 the year that crypto mining caused even used/2nd hand RX470's to sell for £300-400??

    Surely that would have been AMD's best ever year for GPU shipments? Or was there just not enough Polaris chips manufactured??

    They managed every other quarter for a long time. Like others said the height of crypto mining was more news worthy then anything else so that theory makes no sense.

    As a side point that chart isn't really about Nvidia vs AMD as it's not a discrete only chart, if you want to discuss that then you want this chart: https://wccftech.com/amd-radeon-nvidia-geforce-graphics-card-gpu-market-share-q2-2019/
    That actually tells you where AMD is vs Nvidia. As it's pre-navi I'm guessing fire sales of 570's and 580's have given AMD a huge boost in sales.

    How much 2nd or later user money ends up in GPU OEM pockets...?

    None. What I would be interested to know is if the later shipments to etailers (after the prices went bonkers) were at original pricing, due to being "pre-contracted allocation", and they had to watch potential profits be absorbed by everyone else, or if they also got a slice of the pie at the height of the boom?
