Seven months after its release, AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT Finally entered Steam hardware survey 0.16% market share. This puts it next to the RTX 3050 Ti (laptop GPU) and RX 5700. This is a new milestone for AMD, because this is the first time one of the AMD RX 6000 series GPUs has entered the main survey page of Steam video cards, reaching the required 0.15% on the chart.
Glad to finally see one RDNA2 architecture Although AMD’s 6700 XT took a long time, the popularity of this card in the Steam survey has finally reached a new level Best graphics card, Into the hands of people. AMD has been working hard to produce RX 6000 series cards with any meaningful numbers. It is no secret that Nvidia surpassed AMD’s RDNA2 cards by an 11 to 1.
As for other RX 6000 series cards, RX 6600 XT may appear faster due to its lower price and significantly higher availability, but Navi 21 GPU (RX 6800 and higher) will take some time to enter the main rankings List.According to Steam data, AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 XT is the second most popular RDNA2 card DirectX/Vulkan hardware survey, But it is still not popular enough to enter the video card investigation.
The DirectX/Vulkan survey provides finer details, although the numbers are a bit strange—Vulkan’s sum is over 190%, while the sum of other DirectX APIs is only 84-95%, depending on the month. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Nevertheless, it gives us an idea of the position of AMD’s less popular GPU relative to Nvidia’s similar products.
If we look at the DirectX 12 chart, RX 6800 XT A total of 0.11% of the market share is reached, directly below RX 6900 XT 0.10% market share, RX 6800 Only accounted for 0.05% of the market share.In contrast, Nvidia’s Tencent 3090 Occupies a 0.42% market share in similar products, Tencent 3080 Reach a higher 0.99%, and RTX 3080 Titanium Although it was only released a few months ago, it is already 0.26%.
Maybe more convincing, summary all The RX 6000 series GPUs in the DX12 API list accounted for only 0.43% of the total, while the RTX 30 series managed to get 7.96%. According to these data, the sales of Ampere GPU among the Steam users surveyed surpassed that of RDNA2 GPU, with a ratio of more than 18 to 1. How many GPUs end up in the hands of cryptocurrency miners is another matter.
AMD CPU market share up to 30%
Compared with GPU data, AMD’s Steam CPU survey One side of the fence. AMD occupies a market share of 30.3%, which is AMD’s highest market coverage in many years. This is undoubtedly due to its latest and greatest Zen 3 architecture, which is a lot of The best gaming CPU.
There has been an interesting rebound since last month, with AMD’s share dropping to 27.31%, so there must be some changes in the numbers.It’s nice to see, because any statistical survey should The display changes, we see that on the CPU side-GPU side, there are not so many (not at all, really). So, as usual, we need to mention that Valve has never released the complete details of how these surveys are conducted. Although we can hope that they are done using appropriate statistical methods, we are actually not sure whether this is the case.
Obviously, the shortage of video cards and other supply constraints are still a problem. Both AMD and Nvidia hope to manufacture and sell more GPUs, but TSMC and Samsung foundries are basically producing them. Hopefully, once the new fab is put into operation, we will see more availability of future products.
