The latest Steam Hardware & Software Survey for June 2024 offers a comprehensive look at the processors and hardware powering gaming rigs around the globe. Let's dive into the key highlights and trends from the data, focusing on both processor usage details and other critical hardware components:

Windows 11 Gains Ground

This marks a growing acceptance and transition towards Microsoft's latest OS among the gaming community.

CPU Market Share

The battle between Intel and AMD rages on, with Intel holding a significant lead but AMD making notable inroads.

AMD, while trailing, has seen a more significant fluctuation, dropping 1.54% over the same period but maintaining a substantial portion of the market.
