Nvidia 3D Cards Lose Position on Steam
April Steam statistics on video cards gaining popularity paint a very interesting picture: if in March eight out of ten positions in the “Top 10 movers” category (that is, the models with the highest growth) were represented by Nvidia models, and the expensive GeForce RTX 20 line, then in April the “green” has only four positions, and not one of them belongs to the top-end series at the moment.
As you can see in the image, the GeForce GTX 1660 Super and AMD Radeon R7 M445, used in laptops, increased their positions in the same way: by 0.15%.
The share of AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT also increased: albeit only slightly, by 0.09%, but this provided it with fourth place in the category, following the GeForce GTX 1650.
But the growth of Intel integrated graphics processors looks even more amazing – in the Top 10 for they immediately three positions! Of course, this fact does not mean that gamers are rapidly getting poorer, they are selling their discrete graphics cards and are content with the capabilities of integrated GPUs 10 years ago, but their popularity is growing.
Another statistic is interesting: the total share of Nvidia video cards on Steam decreased from 77.9% to 73.3%, while Intel and AMD increased their shares: the first – from 8.6% to 10.7%, the second – from 13.4% to 15.9%.
