AMD processor share on Steam begins to decline: players wait for Zen4 upgrade
Specifically, AMD’s share on Steam was 32.06% in August, 33.73% in July, 31.5% in June, and 32.8% in May. The current share is slightly lower than in May.
After AMD achieved a share increase in July, its share declined in August. A big reason is related to the upcoming launch of the Ryzen 7000.The performance of the Ryzen 7000 with the 5nm Zen4 architecture has been greatly improved, which is very attractive to gamers. Many A fans choose to hold coins for purchase.After the new product is launched, the purchase volume of the Ryzen 5000 will be affected.
AMD’s Ryzen 7000 series processors will be available on September 27, so AMD’s CPU share in September is not expected to rise significantly.
As for whether the new platform should be upgraded in the first time, I suggest you wait and see. One is that there may be a new round of adjustments in the price of graphics cards in September, and the other is that the Ryzen 7000 will be replaced with CPU, motherboard and memory this time, and the installation cost will be Much higher, the first wave of early adopters obviously has to pay a certain price.
In addition, Intel’s 13th-generation Core will also be launched in October. The performance of both sides is very tight this time. How to choose depends on the actual performance after listing. Users who are not in a hurry should wait until the results come out.
