According to reports, Windows 10 has reached its all-time high market share on Steam, with 49.6% of Steam users now currently using the OS to play video games.

The latest survey clearly shows that 48.37% of Steam users have computers running Windows 10 64-bit, while the other 1.23% are using the 32-bit variant of the operating system. At the same time, the 64-bit version of Windows 7 is the only other operating system that has seen an increase in usage, currently at 28.82% of the Steam gamers. It seems that all other versions of the operating system have shown a decline or remained stagnant.

Currently, Windows is used by 95.40% of all Steam gamers, a 0.06% decline compared with last month. On the other hand, the macOS user base has increased by 0.07%, likely because there are more people who have started using version 10.12.1 of the platform. In other words, all versions of macOS are used by about 3.59% of Steam gamers. Unfortunately, Linux continues to decline with just o.88% of Steam gamers using the OS.

The most preferred system configurations are 8GB of RAM with 1GB of VRAM. The preferred resolution on a single monitor is 1920×1080 pixels, while the resolution on a multi-monitor setup is at 3840×1080 pixels. When it comes to the video card, you should know that NVIDIA’s GTX 970 is the most used video card with about 4.90% of Steam gamers having it installed on their machines.
