Nvidia is the world’s leading supplier of “discrete,” or standalone, graphics chips but takes a distant second place in overall market share to Intel, which supplies “integrated” graphics built into the chipsets that accompany all of its processors. Mercury Research estimates the total market for graphics chips, including integrated graphics, at almost $10 billion in 2009.
I think the competition is good, I mean what else can Nvidia do but take their prices down for their “stand-alone” video cards… I currently am using a Geforce 8800GT and love it, I know it has its limitations, so I am always looking for the next best thing. AMD or Nvidia, personally I like them both, whomever gives me the best bang for my dollar wins!
