It is a widely-known fact that the tablet and smartphone market is overtaking the PC market by leaps and bounds. However, the one bright spot for NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) has been the fact that the gaming PC market has gone untouched. As a matter of fact, it has also managed to grow a shade stronger. In addition to this, though the company does not enjoy a monopoly in the market, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) is the only competitor it has in this space. The latter has been consistently losing market share due to the fact that it is unable to dedicate resources to its GPU business. In this space, it has pretty much been fighting a losing battle against Intel.
