2.5% share for GTX 1070 in a few months is very impressive considering most cards are $400+ (new GTX 970?). GTX 1060 finally leading the other Pascal cards in sales.

Prove that Steam numbers are completely irrelevant when it comes to marketshares..

https://jonpeddie.com/press-releases/details/in-q2-2016-add-in-board-market-decreased-while-amd-gained-market-share



Quarter-to-quarter AIBs shipments decreased -20.8% and 0.8% year-to-year.
Notice that Polaris is partialy included in Q2 despite being launched only the last days of the quarter, because AMD had to supply retailers at least 2-3 weeks before launch.

What those numbers say is that from Q1 to Q2 AMD units sales increased by 3.8% and Nvidia units sales decreased by 28%, i guess that some PR is needed here or there to cancel this reality.

Besides the issues with those Q2 numbers that's already been debated to death. We are now in Q4, not Q2.

Steam is about gaming thus why we can view it as more important for this issue over total sales.

You perfectly know that there s no numbers for Q4, there s not even numbers for Q3.

That being said the Q2 numbers should favours Nvidia even more since they launched their new gen first, wich is exactly the point you re trying to make but using convenient datas.

We ll see in a few weeks when JPD release his next survey, i m about sure that your steam numbers will be crushed even more and appaear for what they are, perhaps relevant to make statistics about steam users but not much more.

Yep, exactly the same case. Just another trolling thread with flawed statistic numbers.

There use to be a time when Steam Surveys were welcomed and discussed by both sides.

I guess those days are gone around here.

For what it's worth I haven't been polled since I jumped ships. So I'm "technically" still contributing to the AMD side :D

Since one can't use sales for this quarter yet, one would have to compare old Steam survey results to already released sales results. To those questioning the relevancy of this.

I'm not surprised with the state of products and brand recognition to see far more Nvidia representation, but it is surprising that 1060 alone is double 480+470+460.

Is that how it works? If you have polled in the past but not recently it still counts? Or is it based on October results only?

Not for me. Visiting a lot of forums, it just seems "gamers" who would most likely volunteer for the Steam survey are buying NV. And throw in the mix of miners who openly mention their 10+ 480 purchases skew AMD's representation versus sales.

Throw in some of the same said miners then openly state they buy NV cards for their gaming rig which might be represented in the survey but their mining rigs not.
