July 2022 Steam Hardware Survey Report: AMD processor share has risen sharply
As August kicks off, Valve has released the results of its Steam hardware survey for July 2022. In the latest report, AMD’s CPU has achieved very impressive results, and its share has risen sharply. Meanwhile, Linux is likely to overtake macOS as the second most popular gaming platform on Steam within a few months, no doubt thanks to Steam Deck.
But compared to CPU, AMD’s performance in GPU is much inferior. Going into 2022, AMD graphics cards have improved a lot in terms of supply, with the Radeon RX 6000 series increasing month by month, but by a much smaller margin than Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 30 series. In the current statistics, NVIDIA’s GPU ratio is 5.8 times that of AMD. If you narrow it down further to the Ampere and RDNA 2 architectures, Nvidia has an even bigger advantage, 10.9 times that of AMD.
