Do we also have a list of CPUs? I think that space is much more competetive ever since 3rd gen Ryzen

AMD gained and Intel lost 1.46 percent points since July in total.

Intel CPUs with at least 3 GHz lost 3.52 percent points since July (from 46.17% to 42.65%)

AMD CPUs with at least 3 GHz gained 1.4 percent points since July (from 14.62% to 16.02%)

6 core CPUs gained 4.44 percent points since July (from 15.00% to 19.44%)... so a gain of 30%

8 core CPUs gained 1.61 percent points since July (from 3.01% to 4.62%)... so a gain of 53%

12 core CPUs gained 0.09 percent points since July (from 0.06% to 0.15%)... so a gain of 150%



When was the last time AMD got over 20% in CPUs? Windows and Linux combined, AMD is now at 20.5% on Steam, up from 19.5% last month.

However, AMD certainly slowed down a lot in gaining market share under Windows after the first push with Zen 2.



Very strange Steam survey data this month! Biggest example:

Huge gains for the GTX 1060 in the "all video cards section" (from 15% to almost 21% within a month?) and in the "Vulcan" section (from under 30% to more than 40% within a month?), but huge losses for the same GPU in the sections "DirectX 12 systems" and "DirectX 11 systems".

Since most Steam system should be "DX 12 systems" by now (or at least "DirectX 11 systems"), the data has to be wrong, it doesn't add up.

So let's wait if they fix it until next month.



Looks like the guys in charge of the survey had great Xmas parties and messed it up a bit once they came back to work .

Who knows, maybe they mixed part of the 1060 and 1660-/Ti data.
