Steam's May survey shows its users prefer Windows 10

Mark Hachman | June 3, 2016
How much of it should be attributed to forced upgrades, and how much to simple preference?

In CPUs, Intel powers 76.76 of all PCs that use Steam, with the remaining 23 percent going to AMD. Nearly as many Steam users' PCs rock four-core CPUs as two-core CPUs: 45.08 percent and 48.13 percent, respectively.

Steam also tracked VR headset use, which is skewing more heavily toward the HTC Vive, with 66.6 percent market share. Those numbers are at least partially attributable to the fact that the Vive was a joint partnership between HTC and Valve, however.

The central question, though, is a simple one: Do gamers now prefer Windows 10? The numbers seem to say that they do.
