AMD told about the benefits of its graphics cards

AMD Chief Game Architect and Marketing Officer Frank Azor explained why their graphics cards are more profitable than their closest competitors, including NVIDIA. Overclockers writes about it.

Currently, the advantage in the graphics card market remains with NVIDIA (75.85%), followed by AMD (15.02%) and Intel (8.92%). However, AMD believes that their cards outperform their closest competitors. Frank Azor has published a table comparing the Radeon RX 6000 and GeForce RTX 30 cards. The adapters are compared in terms of performance per dollar, as well as performance per watt.

So, for example, he said, the new AMD Radeon RX 6950 HT graphics card is 80 percent more profitable than NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 per dollar and 22 percent more profitable per watt in terms of frame rate gains per second. The Radeon RX 6900 HT outperforms the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti by 19% on the same metrics.

In addition, the Radeon RX 6400 graphics card beats the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti by 89% in terms of net fps gain and up to 123% more favorable in terms of frame rate per watt.

Earlier it became known that AMD started using different fish names for the internal naming scheme of graphics processors. For example, the RDNA 2-based Navi 21 processor was codenamed Sienna Cichlid (sienna is a natural iron-oxide yellow-brown substance, cichlids are a family of ray-finned fish).
