Steam survey suggests Nvidia’s RTX 3070 is actually trickling into the hands of gamers

Now that the street price of an Nvidia RTX 3070 , it’s temping to think scalpers, bots and cryptocurrency miners got them all — but suggests at least some of them are making their way into gaming PCs, too. , the 3070 in particular appears to have become Steam’s fastest growing GPU, and the 17th-most popular graphics accelerator on Steam with a 1.29 percent share overall.

The RTX 3080 also commands 0.87 percent, the RTX 3060 Ti has 0.39 percent, and the pricey RTX 3090 claims 0.34 percent of the market — for a total of 2.89 percent Ampere cards.

That not bad, especially considering AMD’s rival RX 6000 series doesn’t have a single spot on the entire 95-GPU leaderboard. Apparently, more gamers are using the 2011 Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti (0.16 percent) than any of AMD’s latest cards.

More than a quarter of Steam PC gamers are now using AMD CPUs instead of Intel, though, so that’s probably some consolation.

If are anything to go by, I would expect the newer RTX 3060 to contribute to Nvidia’s tally next month.
