GDC 2016 - AMD has just launched its new dual-GPU known as the Radeon Pro Duo, continuing its push into becoming the leader of VR. AMD has teamed with Crytek to push its momentum of VR, with AMD becoming Crytek's exclusive GPU technology partner for its Crytek VR First initiative.

AMD is also working with over 10 universities across the world in order to push VR into areas outside of the gaming industry, with AMD reiterating that VR will "transform entire industries beyond gaming and entertainment", with industries like education, medicine, and countless other mediums being affected by VR.

 

The 83% number is interesting, because AMD doesn't have that much discrete GPU market share - with NVIDIA heavily swayed when it comes to dGPU market share. Could AMD be including PlayStation VR as part of their VR dominance, thanks to the PS4 being powered by an APU made by AMD? We'll be asking AMD for clarification on this shortly.
