Forums - PC Discussion - Monthly Steam hardware survey analysis

Hmm, I see you've decided to put all those statistics you make every month together into one big thread. Good for you!

But it must have been a hell of a work, I certainly don't envy you
By the way, you sould check the first two posts, both labeled as "May 2016"



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

But the dates are correct.

On 1st May 2016 i was looking for the April survey... it wasn't there yet, but they had fixed their wrong data of the March survey.

The following day I posted the April survey.

You made them on the same day, but one talks about the March data and the other about the April data. It's a bit odd to see two posts talking about different months but with the same header.

Just my 2cents.

Nice collection chain of data you've got there Conina

 

Good to know we've got more users with DX 12 ready GPU's than originally thought. 



                                       

The Geforce 1060 is so dominant, which is great to see, it's an amazingly solid card.

Very interesting thread!

Particularly keen to keep seeing how many steam PC's can ostensibly rival an Xbox One X!

Very small proportion at the moment, but I expect that to ramp up dramatically early next year.

Well, currently around 25 million Steam PCs should be able to do that in every game:

If we include the GTX 1060, over 60 million Steam PCs should be able to rival the Xbox One X in almost any game.

 

Would be interesting to know how many Xbox One X consoles are sold by now. 2 million? 3 million?

I think its probably generous to include the 1060 haha.

Its tricky, because in raw numbers thats a lot of PC's. But people often talk about how anyone could just play games from the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X (especially the latter) on their PC. This seems to indicate that for over 90% of Steam gamers (and presumably many, many millions more non-Steam PC gamers), they're simply not able to do so at a console quality level atm.

But as you point out, we have no idea how many X's have sold at this point.

Why so?
Ignoring the fact that the vast majority of PC's have a CPU that is significantly superior...

But the Geforce 1060 doesn't have a crossbar mismatch. I think it's roughly inline/slightly ahead of the Xbox One X's capabilities outside of FP compute tasks.

RX 580 would probably be higher if they weren't so expensive due to the mining boom.
