Six-core processors became the most popular on the Steam platform for the first time

According to the latest Steam Hardware Survey statistics, six-core processors overtook the popularity of quad-core models for the first time among users of this gaming platform.

Over the past month, six-core processor share on Steam increased from 33.03% to 34.22%, while quad-core processor share fell from 35.01% to 33.74%. Thus, the parity is associated with a minimal advantage of the six-core.

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%.

Among the latest generation graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 3060 is the most popular – it occupies the seventh line of the rating and gained 0.56 percentage points over the month.
