Valve has such a good thing going with its Steam Hardware Survey, as it gives us a great glimpse into how the split between AMD and Intel on the CPU side of things, and AMD and NVIDIA on the GPU side of things, when it comes to PC gamers.
We now have the April 2018 data to look over, so I decided to take a closer look at mainstream graphics cards being used with NVIDIA still sitting at #1 with the GeForce GTX 1060 absolutely dominating the charts. NVIDIA holds the top 14 positions with GeForce GPUs, and then they're met with the Intel HD Graphics 4000 as their only competitor at #15.
AMD's first appearance in the charts is with their Radeon R7 Graphics in position #19, while the Radeon R5 Graphics takes #24, and then the RX 480 slides into a much lower position at #27. What about the new mainstream Radeon RX 580? Yeah well that has only appeared in the Steam Hardware Survey for the first time in March, with just 0.29% of Steam gamers using AMD's mid-range champion.
What about Radeon RX Vega? Yeah, that's not even on the list, at all.
