AMD Increased GPU Market Share in Q4

Q4 was a good quarter for AMD as they increased their market share by 8.1%. Jon Peddie Research attributes some of this to the cryptocurrency market and says over 3M add-in boards went to cryptocurrency miners in 2017. Overall this is a nice jump for AMD and should help them out in the short term as long as cryptomining is profitable. Also, Dr. Peddie is on the same page as Nvidia and doesn't believe GPU prices are going to start dropping anytime soon.
