Nvidia's GTX 1060 is now Steam's most popular GPU

This includes both 3GB and 6GB models.



Read more about Nvidia's GTX 1060 becoming Steam's most popular GPU.

Very misleading as the 3gb and 6gb cards are two very different SKUs.

It is a bit like combining the GTX 1070 and 1080 sales figures.

Well Valve list them as the same. So really not much we can do.

Not surprising it's the most popular though. I think the 480/580 deserves more love but "AMD sucks" so not surprised it isn't.

Problem is mining has made it close to impossible to actually buy a 480/580.

Not surprising as you can't buy any AMD cards because the miners have them all and games aren't anymore demanding than they were 5 years ago so there's no reason to buy a 1080+ unless you're at 4K resolution. Add to that, the 1050Ti is still way behind the 1060 and it kinda makes the 1060 the only game in town.

Kind of a funky time for GPS right now.

Yep I know. But while miners buy AMD cards it hurts AMD in the gaming space and they lose market share and therefore shareholders which in turn hurts them etc. Never ending bad cycle.

They could never compete with Nvidia any way. Biggest selling card when ATI were kicking ass with the 5870 and 5850 (at the cheaper launch prices) was the GTX 260.

In fact I sometimes wonder how many people "upgraded" their 970 for a 1060. But yeah, Nvidia's 60 series are always massively popular, even if they are poor.
