Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER pips AMD Radeon RX 5700 for take-up in Steam's hardware survey
The top 10 movers in Steam’s monthly video card usage chart are a bit more evenly split between the two major GPU manufacturers this month, although with seven entrants Nvidia is still the dominant party. Its GeForce GTX 1650 is the biggest mover for January, picking up an extra 0.51% share over the month. Further down the chart, there are fresh spots taken up by the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER and the AMD Radeon RX 5700, with the former just beating the latter for share percentage.
It appears 0.18% of systems tested in the survey featured Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER graphics card while 0.16% of respondents mentioned being in possession of AMD’s Radeon RX 5700. Although there is some healthy movement for AMD products overall, it seems that gamers are still leaning towards products from Team Green, which is not surprising when you consider the amount of cards Nvidia has put out over recent months, with many more to come.
Overall percent share is still Nvidia territory with the odd foray from an AMD stalwart, like the Radeon RX 580. But it’s not just older cards in older machines that are taking up the top spots; relatively newer products such as the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti are starting to cement their places near the top of the survey. AMD has been making impressive steps in the CPU market, with the latest Ryzen chips performing beyond expectations, but it seems the GPU side of the business is stagnating at the moment while we wait for the appearance of “Big Navi”.
