April 2022 Steam Hardware & Software Survey: 3 AMD GPUs entered the list for the first time

Recently, Valve released the results of its Steam hardware survey for April 2022. In the last report, there was a very important change, that is, the 6-core CPU surpassed the 4-core CPU for the first time and became the highest number of CPU cores, which means that it was owned by the most players and became a historic moment. In the Steam hardware survey report in April, there were also interesting situations, such as the 4-core CPU bucking the trend and surpassing the 6-core CPU, regaining the highest proportion of CPU cores, and multiple AMD graphics cards entering the list.

At present, on Steam, the proportion of 6-core CPUs is 33.06%, which is a decrease of 1.16% compared with 34.22% in the previous issue. The 4-core CPU accounted for 33.98%, an increase of 0.24% over the previous issue, and it regained the top spot. But even so, from the perspective of future trends, this competition is temporary, and it is only a matter of time before the 6-core CPU regains its position.

In this month’s hardware survey report, the biggest highlight is the graphics card. AMD’s three RDNA 2 architecture GPUs entered the list, including Radeon RX 6900 XT/RX 6600 XT/RX 6600, which appeared on the list for the first time, accounting for 0.15%, 0.3%, and 0.15% respectively. This is a welcome improvement as supply increases and prices fall.

You must know that for a long time when the GeForce RTX 30 series based on the Ampere architecture conquered the market, the Radeon RX 6000 series of the RDNA 2 architecture was almost invisible. In July last year, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card alone surpassed all AMD Radeon RX 6000 series models combined, and the GeForce RTX 3090 is the smallest product in NVIDIA’s entire GeForce RTX 30 series. It wasn’t until October last year that the Radeon RX 6700 XT appeared on the list with a 0.16% share, seven months after its release.
