Steam Survey: Nvidia GPUs Continue to Dominate the Gaming Market

Steam Survey Shows Nvidia Graphics Cards Continue to Dominate the Gaming Card Market

Steam has released its monthly hardware and software survey. According to the results of the survey, Nvidia graphics cards once again dominated the market in March 2024.

According to new statistics from Steam, at least 78% of all users on the platform use Nvidia graphics cards. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card leads the way with a share of 6.92%, followed by the RTX 2060 with a share of 4.1% and the GTX 1650 with a share of 4.07%. These figures are somewhat surprising given the release of the new RTX 4060 graphics card in the summer of last year.

Despite Microsoft’s focus on the gaming capabilities of Windows 11, according to the results of Steam’s previous month’s survey, Windows 10 is still recognized as the most popular operating system on the platform. In fact, 54.4% of all Steam users use the 64-bit version of Windows 10, which is higher than the 41.61% share of the 64-bit version of Windows 11. This trend has continued for several years now.

Steam announced earlier this year that it would be ending support for Windows 7 and 8. A small number of users on the platform still use Windows 8, but their share is only 0.08%.

Every month, Steam collects and publishes data on the most popular graphics cards, operating systems, monitors, storage, CPUs, RAM, and even virtual reality headsets that its users use.

 

Other notable findings from the survey include:

The most popular CPU is the Intel Core i5-4690K, followed by the Intel Core i7-4790 and the AMD Ryzen 5 1600.

The most popular RAM configuration is 16GB, followed by 8GB and 32GB.

The most popular storage type is HDD, followed by SSD and NVMe SSD.

The most popular resolution is 1920×1080, followed by 1366×768 and 2560×1440.

The most popular monitor size is 24 inches, followed by 22 inches and 27 inches.

The Steam Hardware & Software Survey is a valuable resource for developers and gamers alike. It provides insights into the hardware and software that gamers are using, which can help developers make informed decisions about their games.
