I'll look at JPR's figures. They will definitely be interesting.
As for Vega causing marketshare to plunge, I'm still very skeptical about it. I still think Steam's hardware survey results are not definitive due to China's numbers skewing the results. I am certain what we are seeing is Nvidia's dominance in China bringing down AMD's numbers. And why do I say that?
Intel's PC video card usage
Aug 2017: 13.41%
Sep 2017: 12.23%
Oct 2017: 7.54% <- the month that Chinese numbers enter the survey
Nov 2017: 6.16%
Dec 2017: 5.98%
I have no doubt that Vega will cause AMD to lose some marketshare but plunge? Not likely to plunge. Most likely this sharp decline in AMD's marketshare as shown by Steam's hardware survey is very likely due to the Chinese market completely skewing the numbers. Nvidia has a very strong dominance in the east.
Intel has fallen at a steady rate during the new gaming era. And as I showed, even when the Chinese amount falls. Intel, like AMD also drops. The Chinese excuse is no longer valid.
