Published by


The July update of the Steam Hardware Survey revealed several details about the sales of the various manufacturers, one of which was that Nvidia is outperforming AMD by a wide margin when comparing the two companies' previous generations: The greens sold 11 GeForce RTX 3000 GPUs for every Radeon RX 6000 GPU that the reds sold, resulting in a ratio of 11 to 1.

According to the survey results, the GeForce RTX 3070 was Nvidia's best-selling graphics card, and it is currently being used by 1.52 percent of Steam users. RTX 3080 with 0.88 percent, RTX 3060 with 0.64 percent, RTX 3060 Ti with 0.42 percent, and finally, the RTX 3090 with 0.38 percent are the next best performing graphics cards in this category. In total, 3.88 percent of Steam users have a GeForce RTX 3000 graphics card installed on their computer.

Model Percentage
GeForce RTX 3090 0,38%
GeForce RTX 3080 0,88%
GeForce RTX 3070 1,56%
GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 0,42%
GeForce RTX 3060 0,64%
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT 0,08%
AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT 0,1%
AMD Radeon RX 6800 0,05%
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT 0,12%

On the AMD side, the Radeon RX 6700 XT was the most widely used RX 6000 graphics card, accounting for 0.12 percent of total usage. With 0.1 percent, the RX 6800 XT is the next best-selling model, followed by 0.08 percent for the RX 6900 XT and finally 0.05 percent for the RX 6800. In total, 0.35 percent of Steam users have a Radeon RX 6000 graphics card, which means that they do not even come close to matching the percentage of RTX 3090 owners. Also, by dividing the percentages, we can see that Nvidia sold approximately 11 RTX 3000 GPUs for every RX 6000 GPU that AMD sold, which is insane given the competition.

In the overall ranking, the GTX 1060 continues to be the most popular graphics card, with 7.95 percent of users opting for it. The top 10 graphics cards are all green, indicating that Nvidia continues to be the leader in the gaming graphics market and will likely remain so for some time. The weather is nice. The release of a Ryzen-based GPU will be interesting to watch, although it appears that this will not be the case for at least several generations to come.
