GTX 1060 Tops Steam Charts, Windows 10 Continues To Grow

Nvidia’s GTX 1060 is a direct competitor to AMD’s RX 480. Both of these cards are frequently debated on in the PC community with each card performing excellently is their respected favourable titles. Both cards, the GTX 1060 and Radeon RX 480 go neck and neck in many gaming benchmarks. However, it seems like Nvidia seems to be dominating Steam charts yet again.

According to Steam’s Hardware Survey, in June 2017, Nvidia’s GTX 1060 still dominates hardware charts. However, this time, Nvidia’s GTX 1060 gets a few extra points from holding onto 5.19% in May to 6.29% in June, that’s a 1.1% increase. What is interesting is that there isn’t an increase in RX 480 GPUs despite all the mining jazz that was going around in June.

On top of that, we could still see the GTX 970 and 960 from last-gen trying to keep their heads above the water with the GTX 960 gaining almost an extra 0.8% share meanwhile the GTX 970 takes 4th position with a 5.2% share.

On the OS side of things, Windows 10 continues to pull ground away from it’s predecessors with Windows 10 now occupying 50% of cake with a 1.28% in June compared to May. When it comes to OSX, it seems like OSX users have successfully moved over to the latest update of Sierra, MacOS 10.12.5 64 bit. With MacOS 10.12.5 64 bit seeing an increase of 0.99% with the rest of the versions seeing a decrease. The increase finally took its effect in June when Apple released an update in May for MacOS 10.12.5 64 bit that adds support for media-free installation of Windows 10 Creators Update using Boot Camp.
