The processor preference of Steam users is changing!
Competition in the processor market has increased as a result of AMD’s launch of Ryzen processors. After the introduction of 3rd generation Ryzen processors, the usage rate of AMD processors also increased. However, with Intel’s introduction of its 10th generation processors, AMD’s progress has slowed somewhat. Now, the rate of Steam users using AMD and Intel processors has emerged. For AMD, faces are smiling.
Increasing the number of cores and threads in its 10th generation processors, Intel was once again a partner in the competition with an aggressive price policy.
Processor usage rate of Steam users is increasing
Steam’s hardware survey in September 2020 has drawn a smile for AMD. AMD, which gradually increased its market share since its release, increased the pressure with the Ryzen 3000 series with 7 nm architecture. After the introduction of Ryzen 4000 series processors with Zen 3 architecture, this increase is expected to continue.
Having experienced a steady increase since May, AMD maintained this increase in September. According to the September 2020 hardware survey results, the rate of AMD processor usage of Steam users has increased to 25 percent. Mobile users are the strength of Intel’s hand. Continuing its leadership in the mobile side with 10th generation processors, Intel does not want to leave its users on this side to AMD.
With the release of Ryzen 4000 series processors with Zen 3 architecture, a large increase in single-core performance is expected. With the new processors, this increase in user rates is expected to continue.
On the graphics card side, NVIDIA GTX 1060 continues to maintain its popularity. The most common operating system is Windows 10 64 bit, while the most preferred amount of RAM is 16 GB. 4-core processors, on the other hand, hold most of the market share in Steam with 45.31 percent.
