Steam is known to conduct a survey each month, with the main objective of collecting data of what type of computer hardware/software its customers are using. As per the recent survey conducted by Steam in November 2017, NVIDIA and Intel are surely dominating the market. Their popularity is so massive that they have managed to crush even AMD’s products – including GPUs and CPUs respectively.
According to a report published by DSO Gaming, the graph suggests that AMD’s GPUs market share has decreased from 23.5 percent (in November 2016) to 8.8 percent. This is considered to be a massive drop. At the same time, NVIDIA’s GPU share has increased from 58.6 percent (in November) to 84.9 percent as of now.
The survey-takers, it appears, are choosing NVIDIA over AMD. One can observe a 25 percent increase per year for NVIDIA. Coming to Intel, the GPU manufacturer holds an equal amount of importance in the market. Their CPU share as of today has managed to increase from 78.5 percent (in November) to 91.7 percent as of today’s date.
As further noted by DSO Gaming, the quad-core CPUs are also featuring a major boost in terms of usage. “Back in November 2016, 47.8 percent of the survey-takers were using a quad-core and right now, 72.8 percent are using a quad-core,” the report added.
When it comes to Windows 7 64-bit, the popularity of the operating system is slightly lower than usual. The result is when NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti is compared with the rest of its substitutes in the market. This primary product is followed by GTX 960, the GTX 1060 and GTX 1050 Ti. It is also reported that Steam witnessed the rise of Chinese players (Chinese language) by 8.23 percent.
