Windows 10 has lost market share for the second month running

 
Windows 10 has lost market share for the second month running in Steam's Hardware Survey, with AMD continuing to take some GPU market share. 
 
Last month was the first month that Windows 10 has lost market share since launch, with this trend continuing in February 2017 with Windows 10 64-bit and 32-bit losing 0.78% and 0.12% market share respectively. This month Windows 7 64-bit has gained 1.67% market share, which is surprising for such an old OS. 
 
On the GPU-side, this month also marks the continuation of a new trend from AMD with AMD increasing their GPU market share for the second month in a row, increasing from 23.4% to 23.62%, though Nvidia's market share has also increased from 58.7 to 59.8. Intel's graphics market share has been reduced from 17.4 and 16.2, which is where both AMD and Nvidia have been making gains this month.

Moving forward it will be interesting to see how AMD's CPU market share will change in the coming months in response to Ryzen, with AMD currently holding 21.85% of the CPU market. Will we see this number increase over the next few months of will Intel remain dominant with over 75% of the market?

Suffice to say; If I don't see some tangible increases in DX12 performance soon, I am going back to Windows 7 myself.Quote

The only game I've seen a really decent perf boost in is The Division, DX12 boosted the average FPS from 61 to 79, All maxed out settings at 1440P with a single 1080, Quite impressive IMO.Quote

I just went back to Win 7 two days ago (from Windows 10) and can't believe how much more responsive it is. All my graphics programs work faster and even games seem to have higher framerates (on a GTX 1080 to boot).
There's something actually seriously wrong with Windows 10 (other than all the spying) that is not really noticeable until you go back. Then again, it could be the nVidia drivers sucking...Quote

Would have been cool if you could have done some benchmarks on Windows 10 and then again on Windows 7 Quote

I actually did and still can as they're on separate SSDs. For now let me just say that my Cinebench 15 score on my 20-thread Xeon was 970 with fluctuations mostly below that, in Windows 10, and is now 1279 on Windows 7 (it's an old-ish E5-2660 V2 overclocked to 2.9 Ghz).

The most noticeable difference is the snappiness of the overall interface and the screen refresh on the desktop. Oh, and 3ds max loads noticeably faster in win 7 and is also snappier interface-wise.Quote
