Nvidia has unsurprisingly completely dominated the Steam Hardware & Software Survey for February in terms of PC video card usage. Once again, 18 out of the top 20 places are taken up by Nvidia GPUs, with the GeForce GTX 1650, RTX 2060, and RTX 3080 showing the greatest positive movement for their respective series.

Just like last month, Nvidia has managed to occupy 18 out of the top 20 places in the February Steam survey for video card usage, with only the AMD Radeon RX 580 (11th) and AMD Radeon RX 570 (16th) managing to sneak into the higher end of the chart. While it’s well known Nvidia has a habit of saturating every tiny possible niche of the market, often by releasing additional SUPER variants of its graphics cards, as always the Steam results are a reasonable representation of the general state of the GPU market.

Interestingly, it is the GeForce GTX 1650, RTX 2060, and RTX 3080 that head their respective ranges in terms of movement, with +0.24%, +0.21%, and +0.11% gains for the month, respectively. In fact, these three cards are also the most popular overall in their series, too, with OEMs frequently utilizing the GeForce GTX 1650 and GeForce RTX 2060 in both desktop PCs and laptops. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 offers a great price-performance ratio that has already made it a favorite with gamers who have been lucky enough to secure one.

However, things should start looking a bit different over the next few months, with AMD introducing more entrants to its Radeon RX 6000 series and even Intel preparing a full foray into the dGPU world with its upcoming DG2 or Xe-HPG products. A shake-up of the Team Green-dominated video card chart would certainly be welcomed by many consumers, especially those who have found finding an Ampere card at anywhere close to MSRP an impossible mission.
