Now that the road value of an Nvidia RTX 3070 is over $1,200, it’s temping to suppose scalpers, bots and cryptocurrency miners received all of them — however the latest Steam Hardware Survey suggests not less than a few of them are making their method into gaming PCs, too. As TechSpot reports, the 3070 specifically seems to have develop into Steam’s quickest rising GPU, and the 17th-most widespread graphics accelerator on Steam with a 1.29 % share total.
The RTX 3080 additionally instructions 0.87 %, the RTX 3060 Ti has 0.39 %, and the expensive RTX 3090 claims 0.34 % of the market — for a complete of two.89 % Ampere playing cards.
That not unhealthy, particularly contemplating AMD’s rival RX 6000 collection doesn’t have a single spot on the whole 95-GPU leaderboard. Apparently, extra avid gamers are utilizing the 2011 Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti (0.16 %) than any of AMD’s newest playing cards.
Greater than 1 / 4 of Steam PC avid gamers at the moment are utilizing AMD CPUs as a substitute of Intel, although, in order that’s in all probability some comfort.
If secondhand sales numbers are something to go by, I might anticipate the newer RTX 3060 to contribute to Nvidia’s tally subsequent month.
