No less strange picture can be observed in the graphics card segment. Last month, the GeForce RTX 2060 finally managed to break into the top 3 most popular graphics accelerators on the Steam platform, knocking out the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti model from this position. The share of the former rose to 5.62% in March, while the share of the latter fell to 5.53%.
