[Steam]July Hardware Survey, 1080/1070 market share updates - Page 5

post #41 of 73
The market is the same as it has been for the last 5 years. At any given price point the difference is marginal. Some games are designed to work better with one company than they are with the other. It's always been that way and probably always will be.

I play Steam games almost daily and was only prompted about the survey when I actually opened the Steam app. So unless you go into it regularly, it is possible to miss it. People that just spend several hundred dollars on a GPU, it's safe to assume that you are more likely to go into the app than someone witting on 3 or 4 year old components that just plays the games they already own and enjoy.

$250 with dual fan and backplate, normal size, this card had been on sale since launch day and have gone in and out of stock frequently like all other 1060s. Not sure why you need rgb led and dual bios, that's vanity item for people buying flagship GPUs.
he also forgot the DX11 performance advantages & as well as power consumption(less important).

I could never justify a 8gb RX480 cost over $200.

Why would you even need 2 fans to cool a 120W card is another mystery rolleyes.gif
as you said, vanity. Same reason I don't want a mini card. Not because there is anything wrong with them, but because it would look funny in my pc. Lol I had forgotten about the gigabyte card, mainly because I wrote it off the first time I saw it due to how ugly it is lol

Edit : oh, and the rgb and dual bios I don't particularly care much about. It was more about making a point

And just because I can't justify to myself spending high end money doesnt mean I don't like nice looking items. Also I've only ever bought no frills models and I want a few frills this time lol plus now they're more common in this price range.

Now not every single reviewer is, there are still some left with some integrity, but they still have editors that must approve their articles.
Gone are the days of unbiased reviews unless you really want to spend the time looking through user reviews, which will involve waiting on retail to make it into user's hands. Then ask for numbers of particular different applications that user may or may not have.

It's quite disappointing that more users don't post up personal reviews as much anymore, for this site you must peruse through thousands of posts in the owner's club threads.

It's a shame more people don't see this. Journalistic integrity is pretty much MIA.

Simple solution to biased reviews:

1. Don't read anything except the pictures, numbers, and charts
2. Compare results from multiple sites

Unless it's Anandtech, I pretty much never read the intro or conclusion, because I can form my own conclusions without outside intervention thank you very much.

That's all fine and good, except most people who do buy those cards just skim the last page of one review and look at length of bars, then make their decision.

That's how i tend to do it, also i guesstimate how much more performance i can get with tweaked settings to get me as close to 144fps as possible if i can't already max things and still hit that target.

Unfortunately there's no cure for human stupidity.

I'm just sayin', if you really think some of the review(er)s are biased, then just stick to the hard numbers, and read more than one review to get the full picture.

But if I was only allowed to read just ONE review, hands down it would be Anandtech every single time.
