Nvidia cards lead the way
Quite interesting statistics appeared on the Web, indicating which video cards were most often searched for on Google last year.
The GeForce RTX 3060 became the leader of the rating with a confident margin. It accounted for 8.74% of all requests. In second place was the RTX 3050 with a score of 6.92%, and the RTX 3080 rounded out the top three with a score of 6%.
Of the 62 graphics cards on the list, 78% were occupied by Nvidia graphics cards, which generally correlates well with the company’s market share. The most popular AMD card was the popular Radeon RX 6600, but it took only 10th place. But the already middle-aged RX 580 took the 17th line, which indicates that gamers are still quite interested in this adapter.
The new Nvidia cards, despite being announced at the end of the year, are generally in a good position. The RTX 4080 took 16th place, while the RTX 4090 managed to take 5th place with a score of 4.9%. In comparison, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX was only 41st with a 0.72% share, even though the AMD card came out later.
