While the cryptocurrency mining craze had a dramatic effect on GPU prices, the GTX 1060 remained a compelling choice for gamers who wanted to get the optimal amount of bang for their buck.
In the latest Steam Hardware & Software Survey for December 2017, Nvidia’s GTX 1060 rose above the GTX 960 and GTX 750 Ti, to become the most popular graphics card on Steam.
Holiday spending presumably helped boost the GTX 1060 to the #1 spot, with many players upgrading their GTX 960 and GTX 750 Ti for better performance at higher resolutions and/or higher frame-rates.
Looking at the full survey, it’s clear that Intel is still beating AMD with 90% share, while Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive are pretty equal. With VR continuing to grow, it’s going to be interesting to see how things evolve in 2018, and where the two heavyweights sit in a year’s time.
