Ryzen processors now account for 30% of Steam users - AMD's gaining market share!
 
Remember when almost nobody used AMD CPUs for gaming?

Could be even more if they hadn't immediately abandoned budget segment after gaining the performance crown.

With the mass shortage of silicon, I think it's almost wise that they did this because otherwise they wouldn't be able to keep up with the demand. Imagine how popular a 5800 non-X would be or a 5900. Everybody would be buying them, and then nobody would be able to buy them. :p

AMD has always been my CPU of choice mainly for sentimental reasons. When I first got into this thing of ours back in 2008 and was broke, AMD was giving me unlocked CPU's and quad core CPU's for under $100. Been with them ever since and am glad to see them finally getting some market share. I still have them too, including my AMD X2 7750, the unlocked dual core that I managed to overclock to 3.2 I think lol.....ah those were the days.

I know, and the lack of such a product underlines the fact that they're all corporations with similar goals. None will make a "charity" product to benefit the gamers. Intel, AMD and Nvidia will squeeze every last dollar from their product stack.


And I am fine with that, that's how the world goes round - but the kind underdog rep AMD seems to have is fairly misleading.

Yeah, I watched a video by, I think, JayzTwoCents yesterday. He said that other companies should be mimicking AMD and how pro-consumer they are. I thought to myself, 'I'm a bit na´ve at times, but that's even more so.' I don't think AMD want to be the underdog, not forever. They'll only be the underdog for as long as it's financially for their benefit. Just as Intel stopped innovating because they were not financially obligated to.
