Nvidia GTX 1060 is no longer the most known GPU on steam, but its successor on the other hand might be a big surprise to you. The GTX 1650 might be slower than the GTX 1060, but it has however stolen the crown for the most popular graphics card.
Nvidia GTX 1060 Is No Longer the Most Known GPU on Steam
Currently, Nvidia’s GTX 1650 is the most popular graphics card that is used by gamers on steam and in the process of ousting the GTX 1060 from the top according to the latest hardware survey by Valve that scrutinizes the specs of a sample of its users.
This really is a huge deal because the GTX 1060 has held the number one position in the steam GPU rankings for ages now, so this is somewhat kind of a surprise to be seeing a newcomer take the number one spot. Well, not really a newcomer due to the fact that the GTX 1650 is still very much an older graphics card, but you get the picture.
The GTX 1650 Right Now Is the Most Popular On Steam
The GTX 1650 right now is in first place with 6.27% of the user base of steam having this very GPU inside of their PC and in the process beating out the GTX 1060 which of course is on 5.77% of the GTX 1650 reportedly gained 0.66% in the November survey, whereas the GTX 1060, on the other hand, dropped sharply by 1.85%.
Coming in third place is the Nvidia RTX 2060 on 4.64% which also dropped heavily and in the process shed 1.6% when compared to the previous month.
The RTX 3060 Laptop GPU Is the Fourth Most Popular GPU on Steam
Moving into the fourth position was the card which made the biggest gain back in November actually, namely the RTX 3060 laptop GPU which was up a beefy 1.24% to get to 4.63% which was just a whisker away from stealing the third spot from the RTX 2060.
