GPU shipping stats(amount shipped to) vs demand amounts worldwide

Has anybody have statistics of some kind of shipping volumes? Lookin for shipping amounts from manufacturers to retailers vs demand worldwide statistics.

sadly those kinds of data is usually quite guarded, as they want their competitors know exactly how much they sold, the best we have that i know of is a single retailer in Europe that shares their sales figures, and you could also look at the general sales data for the whole market that some organizations compile, not sure how accurate it is though.

NVidia’s done a far better job of gpu supply. Just look at the metrics, 3-4x the volume AMD has.

That said I can still sell my 3080 for over double what I paid for it. Still wishing I had a 6800xt or 6900xt.

I could buy a 6900xt toxic for 1,5k but yeah...

Atleast here in EU 6900XT's are reasonably easy to get through AMD themselves, 6700XT and 6900XT are always the longest available during the drops.

6800 and esp the 6800XT are a lot harder to get.

Nvidia dont have consoles and cpus to share

That's a good point, but Microsoft and Sony contract out to TSMC directly. AMD isn't delivering any product or taking up space in the fab's queue for console. They're competing with them for the CPU and GPU queue space.

The other factor is that AMD designed the APU's on the 7nm process which is the busiest one at TSMC, whereas nVidia's using the 8nm process at Samsung where there's less competition from Sony, Microsoft, and AMD for fab space. That ended up being an unintended benefit for nVidia to have less manufacturing competition to move shit tons of volume on the pricier dies.

I think considering Nvidia‘s market share that is to be expected. Remember wafer capacity and other items in the supply chain has been booked 1-2 years in advance. So unless AMD (or Nvidia for that matter), could somehow have predicted COVID demand (they couldn‘t have), they can only project based on their previous market share and growth. So yeah, it makes sense Nvidia has 3-4x the volume considering pre-COVID, they were also selling 3-4x the volume.

How do you measure demand when it is higher than the supply?

I think OP means units sold to customers by retailers, but not sure.

ID: hc6a7n6

Yes, that's exactly what I mean.

ID: hc66s9x

IMO the retailers often have a pretty good idea of the local demand for their area, so a simple number of units ordered (by the retailers) would be a good place to start.

Preorder queues, search terms on retailers, notify buttons on products; none of it is centralized though. You'd have to go to each retailer and they won't usually provide that info.

Exactly. It would take a huge amount of time to gather that much data alone and that is basically impossible even if you could see order queues. That is the reason i thought asking that if anybody knows a source who would have done something like this or even tried to do.

Not even stockholders get that kind of info. You'll need to get a job at AMD in upper management or as a database administrator to find out that kind of thing.

Miners buy tens of thousands of cards directly from AiBs so you'll never see how many cards have been actually made.
