Steam Hardware Survey - Dec 2010
I always find it interesting in seeing what the gaming community is doing with regards to hardware and software. Anyway Steam does monthly surveys to collect data on the kinds of hardware and software we use. Yes, the survey is optional.
Anyway here's some stuff I found interesting.....
Two thirds (59.11%) of Steam users use Nvidia video cards compared to one third (32.98%) ATI. However, the most popular DX11 GPU's are the ATI 5700 series (29.33%)
70 percent users use Intel processors - 72.37%
56.3 percent are DX10 users compared to 5.6 percent DX11 users
Windows 7 64-bit continues to climb in usage moving from 31.9% in Aug to 36.66% in Dec. In the same time frame XP was at 33.16 in Aug and is now at 25.75 in Dec.
Vista 32-bit by the way was at 14.4% in Dec while Vista 64-bit was at 10.58% same period
