NVIDIA RTX 4080/4070 Ti enter the list of 10 best-selling GPUs on Steam, AMD increases its share of Linux CPUs

Les NVIDIA RTX 4080/4070 Ti entrent dans la liste des 10 GPU les plus vendus sur Steam, AMD augmente sa part de CPU Linux

The PC market has been in a slump for some time now. Since the collapse of GPU mining, excess inventory, falling prices, and lack of demand have weighed on the graphics card market. The launch of NVIDIA's RTX 40 graphics card series marks the start of a new chapter. A chapter in which AMD is not doing very well. Although they have been out for several months, the Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards have still not entered Steam's hardware database.

On the other hand, all Ada Lovelace graphics cards are rising stars among Steam gamers. The GeForce RTX 4080 was the sixth most purchased GPU according to the February Hardware Survey report. The RTX 4070 Ti came in eighth, and the RTX 4090 was ranked fourteenth on the list of most adopted graphics cards.

The Radeon RX 6600 XT was the most purchased AMD card with a meager market share gain of +0.01%. Intel's Iris Xe (formerly DG1) graphics card is doing quite well, with a market share of almost 2% among Steam users. This makes it the 15th most popular GPU on Steam.

There appears to be a standoff between AMD and Intel in the Windows processor segment. AMD has maintained its share of ~33% since November 2022, with its blue rival clinging to its 67%. The story is completely different in the Linux segment. AMD has slowly and steadily eroded Intel's processor market share among open source software users.

At the end of February, Team Red accounted for 55.64% of Linux users on Steam, with Intel reduced to just 44%. It will be interesting to see how the numbers develop in the coming months. AMD just launched the Ryzen 9 7900X3D/7950X3D with the 7800X3D on the way. On the other hand, Intel doesn't have anything significant planned for the rest of the year (refreshments aside).
