Still, 30-40FPS in today's games isn't too bad - and as I said, with some adjustments to in-game visual settings, 60FPS isn't too far away.

Still, 30-40FPS in today's games isn't too bad - and as I said, with some adjustments to in-game visual settings, 60FPS isn't too far away.
During Q4, NVIDIA launched the GTX 960 GPU, as well as the GTX 965M.
This, combined with the GTX 980 , 970, 980M, and 970M launches recently have propelled the GPU revenue up to $1.073 billion for the quarter.
The GPU business also has a great lineup at the moment, especially with the Maxwell GTX lines.
Also in the GPU segment is the Tesla GPUs and GRID for high performance computing and datacenter GPU functions, and while exact numbers were not released, NVIDIA stated they had strong grown in this sector, with another record quarter for revenue for Tesla driven by “large project wins with cloud service providers and government customers.

The State Of PC Graphics Sales Q2 2014

by Brett Howse |
The majority of users who do not play any sort of graphical game can get by on just integrated graphics alone whether they are from AMD or Intel.
Intel is the volume king here, even though their integrated solutions are not as powerful as AMD APUs for graphics, but by the market share it appears that people are choosing CPU power and efficiency over GPU power for most devices.
