RTX 3060 Appears on Steam’s Hardware Survey, RX 6000 Series Still Nowhere in Sight

Valve’s Steam hardware survey was just updated, and one of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060, one of the best graphics cards, showed up on the charts for the first time. Sure, it has a very minute 0.17% market share at the time of this writing, but the card only launched in late February. Every Ampere GPU now at least shows up, which makes us wonder where AMD’s RX 6000 series GPUs are hiding.

It’s no secret that Nvidia is pumping out a far greater volume of Ampere graphics cards compared to AMD and its competition RDNA2 products. AMD has to split its allotment of TSMC 7nm wafers between the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Ryzen 5000 CPUs, and Radeon 6000 GPUs. AMD’s contractually obligated to provide a lot of console chips, relative to the others, so guess which product line gets the short end of the stick.
