If you want to replace the motherboard in your computer according to Steam’s survey, AMD’s processors were used more than ever before last month. As a final note, AMD’s RDNA2 graphics card was used enough to qualify for the main GPU results. It is clearly the Radeon RX 6700 XT that made the difference in terms of performance.
The Radeon RX 6000 series was launched in November, and AMD’s 6700 XT has been on the market for almost 7 months. But up until now, AMD’s RDNA 2 didn’t show up on Steam’s GPU chart because it had less than 0.15% of the share.
According to Steam, the Radeon RX 6700 XT has a 0.16% share. In this case, there could be two possible reasons: 1) The survey was designed for a different group of computers, or 2) Other individuals did not wish to participate in the survey.
It is still the best way to know what people are using for gaming to take Steam’s monthly survey. It includes the new RDNA 2 in its rankings, along with other important graphics cards like Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q.
It was possible to find Radeon 6000 series cards in the past, but not in recent years. When looking at DirectX and Vulkan API categories, which list all GPUs, it is best to look at each individual list. However, the main GPU sorting now includes it too.
Looking forward to finding out what GPU model will be the next to have a share of 0.15% or higher. It’s been a few months since the Radeon RX 6600 XT was released, but it’s still pretty new. I’m also curious how much supply there will be for this GPU since I know we all have them.
Every month, a new gaming report is released. The AMD computers have been doing better in the past few months, reaching 30% share. It’s higher than their high of 30.13% in May, so they’re doing great.
That’s about a 9% gain since AMD introduced its original Zen architecture in 2017. It finally got back into the enthusiast market. AMD was performing better than it actually is. It has been hard for some people this year to build a new computer, which might be holding AMD back. Some of the Ryzen 5000 series CPUs were out of stock at first (especially the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X).
AMD Ryzen processors are among the top 10 best selling CPUs on Amazon. There are two top-ranked processors: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. This is because the company is “on solid footing” to compete with Intel, which will soon introduce a new platform (Alder Lake CPUs and Z690 motherboards).
