Steam Hardware Survey April 2021

Every self respecting gamer does whatever he can to stay up to date with his gaming setup. The most important components to focus on are, naturally, processors and graphics cards.

This is a competitive world and every new update intrigues users and catches their attention with the latest visual and performance specs.

GeForce RTX 3060 rises above Radeon RX 6000 

The number of players who use the GeForce RTX 30 series graphics accelerators on the Steam platform increased to 3.16%, according to the latest monthly report released by Valve.

This information was gathered via the Steam Hardware Survey for April 2021, revealing that a percentage of 0.85 of users have now upgraded to GeForce RTX 3080 video cards.

GeForce’s new flagship, the RTX 3090, has also seen an increase in usage over the last month. As the survey has discovered, 0.37% of platform users now have this model installed.

This is bad news for AMD, as none of the graphics card models from the new RTX 6000 series have been discovered in the Valve statistic.

Not even models such as Radeon RX 6800 or Radeon RX 6800 XT have made the Steam chart, even though they were released a little over six months ago, in November.


As gamers struggle to keep up with the latest technology, AMD and Nvidia put out increasingly performant graphic bosting hardware.

We are looking forward to next month’s report. You can tell us what side you decided to go with and what your favorite graphics card is in the comments section below.
