AMD Is Ahead Of Intel, According To The Latest Steam Reports
Leading the processor market, Intel is no longer as comfortable as they used to be. According to Steam‘s latest research, users are switching from Intel to AMD. For many years, Intel lead the processor market. At one time, people did not think of another processor manufacturer name. Of course, until AMD released their new architecture.
In recent years, AMD has started rivaling Intel considerably, both in the server markets and in products for individual customers. Although Intel is the undisputed leader of the industry in terms of market share, they had to share the cake they had eaten alone so far with AMD. Steam‘s latest research proved this. Last September, AMD‘s share rose above 25% for the first time ever. The current figure from the Steam user database was announced it as 26.51%. Since last year, the firm’s share has increased by 6%, while Intel’s share has also dropped by the same amount.
This rise AMD achieved is not really a surprise. Ryzen processors already have a better price performance ratio than Intel processors. While Intel was preparing to put the 14 nm Rocket Lake series on sale, AMD took the lead with the 7 nm Ryzen 5000 series. By the way, the company’s 5 nm Zen 4 chips will arrive in 2021. In the GPU market, AMD‘s share did not change much and remained at 16.5%. Still, there was an increase of 1% compared to last year. Not surprisingly, Nvidia dominated the market. GTX 1060 continued to be the most popular card. In general, we see that AMD products are putting pressure on higher positions and following an aggressive approach in the market. The benefit of this situation will be for technology lovers rather than companies.
