Valve, owner of the Steam gaming marketplace, has published new statistics on the configurations of gaming computers used by users. It turns out that Windows 11 is attracting more and more users – albeit at a very slow pace.

According to the Steam Hardware & Software Survey monthly report, the number of Windows 11 users continues to grow, although the spread speed of this operating system is not very high yet. While Windows 10 still dominates the market at 59.43%, Windows 11 is expected to break the 36% mark soon, gaining 1.76 points in one month and reaching 35.75% on Steam.

Monthly voluntary surveys of Steam users help to better understand what technology, software, and hardware customers are using. This allows companies and game developers to make optimal decisions about what exactly is worth investing in in the short term. Respondents are selected at random, so final data may of course be inaccurate.

Overall, according to the survey, 96.77% of Steam users use computers running some version of the Windows operating system, 1.79% use the Mac platform, and 1.44% use Linux.

As for hardware, a typical Steam user in June owned a computer with 16GB of RAM, a 2.3-2.69GHz six-core Intel processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, and a 1080p main monitor. It is worth noting that graphics card statistics should be viewed against the background that the first place is occupied by a model with only 5.50% of user coverage. The top three also includes the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (4.60%), which edged out the “legendary” NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (4.45%) to third place.
