Windows 10 is almost the most popular gaming OS

Posted on Monday, April 04 2016 @ 11:58:37 CEST by

Valve published its latest Steam Hardware & Software Survey and as usual there are some interesting conclusions to draw from this data.

First up is the fact that Windows 10 is close to becoming the most popular gaming OS. All versions of Windows 10 combined now have a marketshare of 38.28 percent and the 64-bit version of Windows 10 is the most used version of Windows out there.

With a total marketshare of 39.96 percent, Windows 7 still has a slight edge but its lead is shrinking every month. The data also shows around 15.03 percent of gamers use Windows 8.x.

All versions of Windows combined account for 95.70 percent of Steam's userbase and Apple's Mac accounts for another 3.32 percent. Linux gaming doesn't seem to be getting off the ground, last month Linux saw a very slight decline to 0.85 percent.

Other interesting stats are that 76.53 percent uses an Intel processor versus 23.47 percent with an AMD-based system. In the graphics market, NVIDIA is the most popular choice with a marketshare of 56.35 percent, AMD has 25.5 percent and 17.77 percent is using integrated Intel graphics. For full details about the most popular hardware configurations you can check the full report over here.
