Redditor @zyck_titan discovered that, despite scalping and astronomical prices, NVIDIA’s Ampere lineup, including cards like the GeForce RTX 3090 have sold ten times the volume of AMD’s RDNA2 cards.

According to the Steam Hardware Survey, NVIDIA’s Ampere cards are currently besting AMD’s RX 6000 series by a massive amount, in terms of sales. By using custom filters, Redditor @zyck_titan was able to pull data for RDNA2 cards in comparison to Ampere.

Apparently, NVIDIA’s current-gen graphics lineup has sold over 10 times as much as RDNA2. Certain cards like the value-oriented Radeon RX 6800, designed to deliver great price-to-performance appear to have sold abysmally - the RX 6800 has just a 0.05 percent market share, a fraction of a fraction of the competing GeForce RTX 3070, which has a 1.56 percent market share. 

These numbers mean that, despite the global silicon shortage and the rise of GPU scalping, NVIDIA has managed to move a high volume of consumer GPUs, while AMD struggles to do the same. Considering that the RX 6000 series is the first time in years that AMD’s gone toe to toe with NVIDIA at the flagship level, this sales performance raises concerns about RDNA3 availability and timeframes.
