Gamer’s buying plans is a report on worldwide attitudes and plans of DIY PC gamers, based on a survey conducted by Antikythera Intelligence & Research late 2019.
The add-in board (AIB) market has been robust in face of an overall declining PC sales volume. That is largely due to the enthusiasm of gamers,
AMD had a surprisingly strong share (47%) of the respondents suggesting they were people with limited budgets. And yet, they reported their AIBs had 10+ TFLOPS. Fifteen percent said they had Nvidia’s newest RTX AIB. More Nvidia users planned to upgrade than AMD (53% to 40%).
The sweet-spot on pricing, according to the respondents is $450, and the most trusted AIB vendor was Asus. The respondents seemed satisfied with 1080p resolution, and 1440 was second.
