Windows 11 is a hit with PC gamers

It is true that Windows 11 has generated quite a bit of controversy, and that with this operating system Microsoft has repeated many of the errors that we saw with the launch of Windows 10. The slowness with which it is being adopted globally , and the dominance that it continues to show Windows 10, they do nothing more than confirm that a good part of the users are not attracted to said operating system, and that for one reason or another they prefer not to update yet.

However, if we look at the PC gaming sector we find a very different reality, since Windows 11 continues to gain ground and has reached such a point that we can say, without any doubt, that it has been a success among gaming lovers. in compatible. Do you think I exaggerate? Not at all, according to the latest data from the Steam software and hardware survey, 33.99% of users use Windows 11 , a figure that represents an increase of 0.60% over the previous month, while Windows 10 falls by 0 .70% and remains at 60.51%.

The difference between the two operating systems is still quite large, but for Windows 11 to have achieved almost 34% share on Steam in just one year and eight months is certainly quite an achievement , and we must be fair and recognize it as such. The rest of the share of operating systems for the month of May in the well-known Valve platform was divided between macOS, which among all its versions adds up to 2.39%, Linux, which gets 1.47%, Windows 7, which has a 1.17% share, and Windows 8.1, which closed with 0.29%.

Windows 11 grows, but how is things at the hardware level?

Well, the truth is that there are few changes. 6-core processors continue to lead with a share of 33.78% , a figure that marks a growth of 0.29%, and the most common working frequencies are between 2.3 GHz and 2.69 GHz. four cores are the second most used with 27.12%, and those with 8 cores are in third place with 19.59%.

When it comes to graphics cards, NVIDIA maintains a very clear dominance, as the 11 most used graphics cards on Steam are GeForce. The most popular is the GeForce GTX 1650, which has a share of 5.85%, followed by the GeForce GTX 1060, whose share is 4.79%, and closing the top three the GeForce RTX 3060, which has a share of 4.73%. Within the new generation, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and GeForce RTX 4090 are the most popular.

Most gamers using Steam have 8 GB of graphics memory , and only 0.73% have 16 GB of graphics memory. We have no changes either in RAM, since most players have 16 GB (51.93%) or in the most used resolution, which is still 1080p (64.33%) . This means that almost two thirds of Steam users play in FullHD, which explains the huge popularity of the GeForce GTX 1650, GeForce GTX 1060 and GeForce RTX 3060.
