Just over two years have passed since we carried out our very first hardware survey, in which we asked our readers to answer 15 questions about their computer setups using our newly minted polling engine. At the time, we collected over 5,500 responses, allowing us to form a rough picture of the typical TR gerbil's PC circa early 2008: a Core 2 Duo machine with a GeForce 8 graphics card, 2-3GB of RAM, Windows XP, and a single 19-22" display of the LCD variety.
Today, the TR Hardware Survey is returning in full force. We've got a handful of fresh questions plus some old ones re-tooled for recent generations of hardware. Our goal is still very much to satisfy our own curiosity, but we think you'll get a kick out of the results, too. After all, who doesn't want to know if TR gerbils tend to favor AMD, Intel, or Nvidia?
Just like last time, the survey questions apply only to your primary PC, be it a notebook or a desktop. Also, due to the way our poll engine is designed, you'll have to click "vote" after answering each question. Doing so won't refresh the page, but it will dynamically bring up results for that particular question, so you can see how other gerbils voted as you go along.
