Less Than 1% Steam Gamers Use AMD’s Radeon RX 580; NVIDIA GTX 1060 @ 15%

As per the latest Steam hardware survey, things are looking rather grim for AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group. AMD’s most popular graphics card, the Radeon RX 580 is apparently being used by less than 1% of the total Steam user-base, 0.94% to be more specific. There is not a single red card with a higher share on Steam’s database, which to be honest is quite disappointing.

AMD Market Share

Before the advent of the GTX Turing cards (GTX 16 series), AMD’s RX 570 and 580 were the go-to cards for entry-level gamers. However, despite that, the RX 580 has a mere share of 0.94% while the 570 isn’t even on the list. Things were even worse for team Radeon in Q4 of 2018 with the RX 580 holding on to just 0.50% of the market share.

NVIDIA, on the other hand, has been having a sweet time with 16% of Steam gamers relying on the GeForce GTX 1060, followed by the GTX 1050 Ti, 1050 and 1070 with 9.83, 5.34 and 4.48% shares, respectively. Even the older Maxwell cards have a higher stake with the GTX 970 and 960 at 2.93 and 2.95%. The previous-gen NVIDIA flagship, the GTX 1080 Ti is pegged at 1.62%.

The current generation Turing cards seem to be climbing the ranks with the GeForce RTX 2070 already at 0.50%, up from 0.17% in December. The RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti follow with 0.40 and 0.21% of the graphics card market share as of Feb 2019.

AMD’s big gun, the Radeon VII isn’t even present in the Steam database, and the highest-end red card to appear is the RX Vega (not sure whether the Vega 56 or 64 or perhaps both) with a share of 0.19%, which mind you is even less than NVIDIA’s Turing flagship, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

AMD Market Share

The repeated price cuts of the Polaris lineup apparently didn’t do much to help AMD’s card. Now, the company’s only hope seems to be the upcoming Navi GPUs (based on the 7nm node) which are expected to land somewhere between Q3-Q4 of this year. Let’s hope they are worth all this wait.
