Steam Hardware Survey: More than 50% of users on Windows 10
Tuesday 3 January 2017 - 21:06 GMT

The latest Steam Hardware & Software Survey has revealed that for the first time over 50% of survey participants are running the Windows 10 operating system.

The new survey results are from December 2016 and show that Windows 10 has a combined operating system share of 50.35%, with the 64 bit version at 49.10% and the 32 bit version at 1.25%.
The survey statistics are particularly interesting for PC game developers because it gives an indication of the setup and configuration of millions of PC gamers worldwide.

The survey also includes virtual reality headset configurations, which shows both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift enjoying a slight increase of 0.02% compared to the previous month.

Every month Valve gathers information from users that have allowed their specifications to be shared anonymously. Once processed the company publishes their calculated graphs on a special Steam Store page accessible to all.
