AMD continues to increase its market share in Steam survey. Valve shared the latest Steam Hardware & Software Survey, which reveals some interesting details about the CPU and GPU market.
According to the survey, 26.9% of Steam users use an AMD processor. To put things in perspective, 21.5% of Steam users were using an AMD CPU in November 2016, which means the red team continues to increase its presence in gaming computers.
However, things don’t look so good for AMD when it comes to graphics cards. In November 2016, 23.4% of Steam respondents were using a company GPU. However, by 2020, only 16.5% of Valve platform users have one. It will be interesting to see if things will change now that AMD has launched its new RX 6000 Series graphics cards.
It is also interesting to see the differences in CPU configurations on Steam. In recent years, the percentage of users with processors with more than four cores has increased significantly. In 2016, that percentage was only 4.5% and in 2020 it is 35%.
As we saw a few months ago, the NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics card is still the most popular with 10.2% of all GPUs. Also, the most used resolution is 1080p with 66.2% and 43.2% of the players have 16 GB of RAM.
