Steam Survey Reveals Only 34% Users Playing at 1080p
All of us know how the quarrel between console users and PC users never ends with the latter claiming to be a step ahead when it comes to experience; however Steam says only 34% of their users manage to get 1080p resolution!
This was revealed in an extensive survey held by the platform covering hardware as well as software trends on a regular basis. The statistics include figures found by July 2015.
Steam conducts a monthly survey to collect data about what kinds of computer hardware and software our customers are using. Participation in the survey is optional, and anonymous. The information gathered is incredibly helpful to us as we make decisions about what kinds of technology investments to make and products to offer.
Interestingly, the number of PC users on Steam that were able to reach the 1080p mark in the last survey were almost the same as they are now (34.33% in 2014 and 34.72 percent this time).
Also, the greatest number of users own a PC with Intel CPU speeds between 2.3 Ghz and 2.69 Ghz i.e. 21.6% while a cumulative total of 37.13% of the users have better CPUs than that. Similarly, 31.07% percent of the users have 8 GB of RAM while 14.51% have 12 GB or higher.
Last but not the least, they have also shared detailed account of the DirectX preferences as well as graphics card preferences among the Steam users. Check it out here.
