Valve surveys PC hardware of 360,000 Steam users
Valve has posted the results of a survey of over 360,000 Steam users' system specs that reveal a number of interesting trends. On the graphics front, more users are running GeForce4 MX-class graphics cards than any other. The Radeon 9800, GeForce4 (presumably Titanium), and Radeon 9600 series aren't far behind. Processors are split almost down the middle, with 52% from Intel and 48% from AMD. Windows XP corners about 90% of the operating system results, and more than 77% of systems have a DVD drive. The survey results also track CPU speed, system memory, hard drive capacity, and a handful of other metrics.
