I wonder if there ain't some small bug in Steam's survey or their database concerning AMD GPUs.

AMD Radeon Graphics are rising steadily at a pretty fast rate, but some low midrange cards like the 6600(XT), are still at 0% after almost a year despite selling relatively well. Checking the sales numbers at for instance gives for both of them together a total sale of way over 9000 (over 13600 in fact, which is quite a bit more than the 6800, 6800XT and 6900XT numbers combined and more than the 6700XT), and that's just one store in one country.

That's why I suspect some cards are falsely flagged as either "generic" AMD Radeon Graphics or fallen under the DirectX 8 GPUs with some wrong readouts or false database allocation, because there's no way in hell that those make up almost 5% of all GPUs these days.

This doesn't mean NVidia isn't also affected, but from seeing their numbers and the fact they rise up quickly after release, I suspect that they are much less affected by this than AMD GPUs
