The latest Steam Hardware and Software Survey results are in, and they’re hardly surprising. Once again, Nvidia has bested AMD when it comes to graphics cards, as a majority of users are still using one of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX GPUs over the Radeon series from AMD.

This does not come as a shock, as Nvidia has always topped the Hardware Survey for GPUs conducted by Valve. March of 2024 hasn’t brought any significant changes from last month’s survey, which also heavily featured Nvidia. There was some hope that the latest Radeon RX 7000 series from AMD would at least gain some traction, but it looks like this isn’t the case. When gamers choose to upgrade their GPUs, they are mostly choosing to upgrade to the flagship RTX 40 series.

Nvidia GeForce is still on top of the GPU surveys, easily beating out AMD Radeon

Nvidia makes up a whopping 72% of the total video cards, with the GeForce RTX 3060 taking the top spot. AMD RX Radeon, on the other hand, has about 3% of the total share, with most of it being attributed to the AMD Custom GPU 0405. This GPU is what’s used in the OLED Steam Deck, being the only option of GPU for the handheld console.

As mentioned above, when it comes to gamers looking to upgrade their graphics cards, a vast majority are going for the Ada Lovelace products from Nvidia. The GeForce RTX GPUs have always dominated the market by a significant margin. This trend only continues with these latest survey results. AMD’s RX 7000 series only gained a meager 0.1% increase of the market share.

With rumors of the RTX 50 series on its way, Nvidia could be primed to take even more spots on this list. While this is just one survey done by Steam, it reflects the market as a whole. If AMD wants to compete with the giant that is Nvidia, they’ve got a long way to go.
