AMD bends forward and steals even more processor according to the latest Steam hardware study, Intel peat, and Team Red has almost reached 30 percent market share.
The figure is 29.54% of the CPU share April 2021 may not sound very impressive, but you have to put it in a historical perspective, as AMD has made big profits over the past year – and even more impressive growth has begun in early 2021.
It is recalled that in a hardware survey conducted in May 2020 less than a year ago AMD’s market share was 22.46%, which means it’s set at 7% since then (which means almost a third more people now run on an AMD processor on Steam).
Interestingly, acceptance has increased more strongly recently as AMD’s hit on 25% of processors lasted until December 2020. This means that from seven months to December last year, AMD’s take-up increased by just over 2.5%, but over the last four In the month from December to April, Intel ‘s competitor has packed a 4.5% profit – a significant acceleration in early 2021.
Cores and impact
In addition to AMD’s growing momentum in the desktop CPU area, recent statistics from April 2021 also show an increase in the overall popularity of multi-core processors. 8-core processors now account for 12.77% of all processors used by Steam players, and 6-core processors now account for 30.5%.
Add these two numbers together, and not so far on the side of all Steam residents with a 6-core processor or better, even though the processors above the 8-core level have only a very small number (less than 2%).
Most still own a quad-core CPU, exactly 40.98% of gamers. This increasing use of multi-core processors is something we have already highlighted recently, and it will probably only become more powerful given the processors now used in current consoles, which means that game developers will want to use more 8-core chips.
