Over 40% of gamers on Steam are using Windows 10 64 bit


In Valve's latest Steam Hardware Survey  Windows 10 64-bit's  market share grew to take up over 40% of the users on the platform, making the new OS almost as popular as Windows 7 & 8's 64-bit Operating systems combined, actually growing at a faster rate than was seem in last month's survey.  

Now Windows 10 64-bit has gained a significant lead over Windows 7, which was formerly the most popular OS on the platform, with most expecting that this lead will continue to grow as more users take advantage of Microsoft's free upgrade to Windows 10 before it becomes a paid option. 

Linux and OSX take up around the same market share as last month, with neither platform seeing any significant growth this year.

On the GPU side Nvidia remains dominant, with 56.64% of the market in this survey, with AMD taking up  25.46% and Intel Integrated Graphics taking uo 17.53% of the market.  

A new VR category has been added to the Steam Hardware Survey, stating that 0.09% of steam users that was part of the survey owned an HTC Vive, with only 0.03% owning an Oculus Rift. If this data is to be believed then there are 3x as many HTC Vive owners as there are Oculus Rift owners.

It's not like you have much of an option with DX12 being limited to win10. Can't say that i can find much flaw with the OS though, didn't have to pay for it either.Quote

Booted up my amd trifire rig a few days ago. OOH the nostalgia. I dont know what, however W7 seemed to look much nicer. W10 just appears bland.

Still happy that W10 was a free upgradr given that DX12 was limited to it.Quote
