    Re: Steam Survey: AMD hardware shows impressive gains

    The bumps seen in both graphs are entirely down to the Chinese market, many of whom appear to be becoming less active on Steam in recent months, I guess due to PUBG dying down a little bit.

    Maybe they are rolling their own? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Graphics_Project

    Maybe the graphics drivers aren't configured properly and don't get recognised. Clearly from some of the integrated graphics many of these machines aren't expected to be playing the latest AAA titles. Heck, I've installed Plants vs Zombies on rubbish hardware in the past which I think was via Steam.

    Edit: Could even be VMware graphics or similar. People do the oddest things

    I don't think this means anything.

    Starting in September, Steam's stats were distorted by a wave of (mostly) Chinese PUBG players using PCs with Intel CPUs, NVIDIA GPUs, and Windows 7. Most of those people seem to have gotten tired of PUBG and stopped using Steam, so things are returning to normal.

    About damn time, Intel needs stiff competition. I wouldn't mind if another manufacturer steps in, perhaps Qualcomm. Is possible for Qualcomm to compete? Who knows. Their chipsets were recently used in a few laptops.
