The latest round of stats
has some pretty big changes, but the wildest swings probably come from a correction in the way Steam counts internet café machines operated by many users. As it turns out, the last few months of stats may not have been entirely reliable.

The March 2018 survey (via the Wayback Machine
) indicated that 57 percent of Steam users were using Windows 7 64-bit, followed by 36 percent on Windows 10 64-bit. The current survey basically flips those numbers: Windows 10 64-bit is back on top at 53 percent, while Windows 7 is back in second place at 36 percent.
As one poster wrote:
AMD is in a way scary position. Despite having being used in nearly 15% of systems running Steam, this is all the usage of the current gen cards on the list (excluding the vanishingly small quantities lumped into the "other" category)
for a grand total of 1.79% which is somewhat less than the less-than-venerable older NVidia GTX950 which I raise merely as a mediocre comparison point. Much less the mighty GTX1060 at 12.29% all by itself. So, most AMD GPUs used are old legacy things.
Totally bewildering the low gaming market share of AMD through Steam. The RX 580 hasn't even cracked 1%. It's quite plausible to think that most of the graphics cards they sell get used for mining crypto-currency.
