Only price and availability will decide and I think I did read that AMD's card are worse (maybe "especially" for mining? Like -10% worse at gaming but -23% in mining, they have slower but more RAM compared to 3080 or 3070, and even 3700 XT is equal to 3060, maybe there was too much normal GD6 RAM and Nvidia thought its a nice reason to let some people spend more for the card even after mining and shortage factor reduced price, until than usual gddr6 will be nothing special I guess),
Have a question, just tried to look it the other side about AMD and income... I searched for revenue/income of "AMD Graphics". I found these 2 things:
AMD's computing and graphics segments generated revenues of 1.96 billion U.S. dollars in the fourth quarter of 2020, an increase from the 1.67 billion U.S. dollars in revenue that the company recorded for this segment in the previous quarter.(27.01.2021)
It makes sense for me, 4th Quarter (October, November and December?) they had a revenue of 1.96 billion (so annualized on that it would have been 4 * 1.96?)"Computing and Graphics" you think includes CPU's ?!
Than something heavy:
Revenue growth for the 2019 fiscal year, at $6.73 billion, was up 4%. Revenue from AMD's Computing and Graphics segment, including graphics cards and PC chips, totaled $1.66 billion, up almost 69% year over year and over the $1.50 billion consensus among analysts surveyed by FactSet.(28.01.2020)
I just take the case that 2019 fiscal year is also calendar year for AMD... so if I got it right whole AMD made 6.73 billion in 2019 FY, "only" 4% up from 2018? I mean okay in 2018 there was Zen+ Release and before that maybe selling out of Zen and later Zen+ selling out and 3000 Series release in 2019. But from that 6.73 billion for the whole year only 1.66 billion was from "Computing and Graphics" which alone in Q4 2020 made 1.96 billion?! I mean this would be just 0.415 billion/Quarter, I mean for the GPU Market I would believe it without any real doubt, dunno when 5700 and down came, but the performance was much further away from high-end than the 6900XT which was/is a bit weaker 3080 according to most benchmarks I saw, but we know except VRAM the 3090's largest "advantage" over the 3080 is the MSRP....
I mean if they started to deliver most of the PS5 and Xbox parts in Q4 2020 and the PC launches, 18th Nov 2020 for the 6800's and 8th December for the 6900 and 18th March 2021 for the 5700, so all the payments for first deliveries and following deliveries started I think even earlier by sea, but can this be correct: 1.66 billion for whole 2019, which already includes an 69% up compared with 2018 vs. a so strong Quarter? I think not everyone @ AMD or Nvidia is happy that they have to release numbers, like that people in the US which made a class action against Nvidia because Nvidia listed the total income for their GTX RTX...and other cards sold in that report as "Gaming" income, they are share or stockholders and maybe small ones which like gaming or just try to make some money, because the problem they have is, that this money is not from "Gaming"-Sector and not a single world is mentioned about Mining or a crypto-currency but they say everyone knows that miners and to a much smaller amount by value scalpers bought the cards immediately, driving up profits maybe, but I don't know if this lawsuit makes sense, but I mean its in the US... over 15 years ago a woman got a 7 digit amount because they gave her hot coffee @ McDonalds, and there are such "important" things which see an court in the US like that one and the amount is 8 and 9 digit... like our "friends", they want Nvidia to pay 1 Billion, dont know if all/most to them or just to pay it so that they introduce the mining cards like they do now, but as you can "hack" their protection with a 6€/US-$ (maybe a bit more in US-$?!) cable-adapter + shipping-costs and a few seconds and use mining-cards for gaming I think? Or use every card the way you wish... but at least they can say "we tried it, we even wrote a new bios already included in all 3060 cards and cards produced in the future, older cards need an upgrade only",
a 1000$ before taxes card like the 6900XT (The US MSRP is always before taxes or? Because we have the VAT here in Europe added, can be "normal" like in Germany with 19% now again or even a little bit lower, but in most cases ~20-21% but also as bad as 27% like in Hungary and maybe during Corona some other countries increased or will increase when the effects of corona will be better because of a vaccine but the cash is very low :X Countries like Poland and to a smaller degree Czechs will feel the effect that like a quarter of their population maybe stopped or heavily reduced smoking, some maybe really will change to cheaper variants as black market is difficult and also Kaliningrad ones are bad quality, and second is the fuel, alone the fuel the tourists used to get cigarettes, than to get their car filled and on the way ofc you already use a lot fuel for that from Berlin, China really will come out much stronger compared to the EU/US than before... when is the point reached where China will get too expensive? I mean somehow their nationwide average wage is increasing for 3 decades or so more or less slowly and some neighbors with also a huge workforce are close,
Central or South-America is absolutely no option for that "area" and a few "safe havens" in Africa with a connection to coasts leading to Suez or Mediterranean?! I mean its the safety the "Goverment" in China offers? the dirty cheap coal electricity now step by step replaced with green? I mean if people start buying E-Vehicles in China in the millions (I think incl. commercial vehicles its the largest E-Vehicle market in the world, just unsure about prices/value), oh I forgot about India? India is poor compared to China, direct neighbors offer worlds poorest workers outside of africa which could do easy work, its closer to Europe/Middle East/Africa a bit from the West-Coast, or to China and the countries near China and to the US West-Coast, about East-Coast I'm not sure if Suez is cheaper or a West-Coast via USA transport by road/train or even split up into largest Panamax-Ships and bring it to the Gulf of Mexico or up to New York or further to Canada...
