More Gamers Started Using Windows 11

Microsoft has been able to further increase Windows 11’s market share among gamers. The latest hardware and software analysis of the Steam gaming platform shows that nearly 20 percent of users rely on the new operating system. Windows 10 continues to lead the way. The updated Steam analysis for May 2022 attributes a 19.59 percent user share to Windows 11, up 0.65 percent from April (18.94 percent). Slowly but surely, every fifth player on Steam seems to be running Windows 11.

However, many users who are currently turning their backs on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 continue to make the move over Windows 10, explaining the rise from 0.34 percent to a still dominant 73.89 percent. The proportion of players with macOS or Linux systems is barely relevant 2.2 percent and 1.12 percent, respectively. Infographic Without a controller, without me: gamers and their basic gear

Normal player: 4 cores, 16 GB RAM, Nvidia graphics, and FHD display

In terms of hardware, the average player on Steam uses a processor with four cores (quad-core) with clock speeds between 2.3 and 2.69 GHz, 16 GB of working memory (RAM), and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card with a classic full -HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The trend in this regard is shifting very slowly.

Steam recorded a slight increase in players with 32 GB of RAM, QHD monitors (2560 x 1440 pixels), and eight-core CPUs (octa-core). Finally, a look at the Steam stats shows a virtually unchanged picture in the three-way battle between AMD, Intel, and Nvidia. Despite AMD’s slow catching up in processors, Intel (68.03 percent) and Nvidia (75.93 percent) still lead the way in CPUs and GPUs. A trend reversal is not yet foreseen.
