Default nVidia holds 82% of desktops

In my opinion, this is horrible news.
If GPU market gets monopolized by nVidia, we're screwed. They'll just slow the evolution and prices will skyrocket.
The huge problem is that it's not nVidia's fault really… It's AMD that seem can't stop thinking about bloody consoles and designing crap for those kindergarden toys instead of doing the proper card construction ment for PCs. I wish they never bought Ati.

Seems we need a third player at the GPU market, as soon as possible. Matrox?

I believe nvidia already bought 3dfx a while back. Anyway while I didn't know or care about the exact Numbers I thought it was common knowledge that nvidia leads AMD by a good margin just as Intel leads them in CPUs.

The real travesty is the majority of pcs have horrible integrated Intel graphics and the average PC owner probably doesn't know the difference between Intel, nvidia or amd.

Not sure how realistic it is to actually get a new player.

I mean you can make a good game without having good technology.
But I don't see how you can get from 0 up to a level where you can compete with Nvidia.

I guess it's more likely that Intel becomes a competitor, especially with their new Memory technology which might help in Graphics Cards as well and might even out other shortcomings.

The real question is how come AMD is still in business? As far as PC are concerned Intel and Nvidia are wiping them they must be in other areas too like consoles?

PS4 as well as XBox One are using AMD Cards, so they are getting some money that way.

That is sad exactly as Joxer says - limited competition means limited innovation. And actually I feel like we're already seeing it …

Like with Intel ? Like with Microsoft ? - Well, except Windows 8, maybe …

Yes to both - when you look at the rate of advancement in times of heavy vs. light competition you see a very different pace.
