Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is Steam's most popular GPU

Valve has published the results of a hardware survey to see which components and bits of kit were the most popular on Steam in December. 

Nvidia's 2016 GeForce GTX 1060 GPU was the most popular graphics card with 12.30 per cent of the vote, a decrease of 0.9 per cent on November. Second place, with 10.32 per cent is the older GTX 960.

The biggest gains in this category were made by the GTX 970, with a 1.11 per cent increase to 3.03 per cent of the vote, and the 1070, which took 2.57 per cent of votes with a 1.02 per cent rise.

46.82 per cent of Steam users have 8GB of RAM, with 68.65 per cent having quad-core processors. That's a 4.19 per cent decrease.

Windows 7 64 bit was the most popular operating system, taking 54.79 per cent of the vote. This is a 15.10 per cent decrease. With a 13.15 per cent uptick in Windows 10 64 bit users - representing 36.8 per cent of voters - Windows 7's time at the top is clearly coming to an end. To no-one's surprise whatsoever, Microsoft operating systems were used by 97.82 per cent of the voting base.
