Analytical platform Statista, specializing in online statistics, published an interesting study on the preferences of PC-gamers. As it turned out, Advanced Micro Devices continues to lose popularity in the gaming market and NVIDIA almost ousted it.
Among Steam users in July 2018, only 13.9% use a PC with AMD graphics. For comparison, in June 2017 this indicator was 20.5%, and in June 2016 – 25.1%. At the same time, NVIDIA’s trend is exactly the opposite: its share increased from 56.7% in 2016 to 63.6% in 2017 and 76.4% in 2018. Intel accounts for only 9.6%, which is natural.
The most popular video card among users of Steam was GTX 1060. Its share reaches 12.9%. The second place is the GTX 1050 Ti with 9.9%, and the third – GTX 1050 with 6.4%.
