Intel reverses the trend in Steam's processor usage survey by snatching a significant chunk of AMD's overall share
Intel has been slipping in regard to processor usage in Steam’s hardware survey for many months, and it would have been reasonable to presume that March would be no different. However, the latest information published by the gaming platform tells a different story, as Intel has enjoyed a considerable percentage change for the month, rising from 78.2% to 81.25%.
According to the data, Intel has made gains in both Windows-operated systems and Linux-based systems. There is +0.24% movement for Intel in the former and +1.23% change in the latter operating system. It’s a surprising drop for AMD, and it will be interesting to see if this ends up being a singular monthly blip or a complete trend reversal for Intel.
Intel has just officially revealed its 10th Generation Comet Lake-H lineup that features some impressive mobile processors, such as the Intel Core i9-10980HK and i7-10850H, which will tempt gamers with their improvements over previous-generation parts. But AMD’s very strong Ryzen 4000 chips were only unveiled a couple of weeks ago, so Intel might have a hard time taking any further usage share from its rival in the future.
