Bestselling GPUs of May: NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super & GTX 1650 Super; AMD Ryzen CPUs Gain Despite 10th Gen Launch

NVIDIA is absolutely killing it in the graphics card market. All the top-three bestselling GPUs of May were part of Team Green’s Super lineup, namely the GTX 1650 Super, the RTX 2070 Super, and the GTX 1660 Super. Not only that, but all the top-five graphics cards were all part of the Turing family. There were only two AMD Radeon products in the top-ten: The older Polaris based Radeon RX 570 and 580. The Navi based RX 5700 XT falls short by two spots, coming in at 12th, with 0.67% of the total market share.

NVIDIA’s GTX 1650 Super and 1660 Super made massive gains, increasing their foothold by 0.19% and 0.12%, respectively. The RTX 2070 Super was the most popular RTX GPU, seeing its share increase by a significant 0.15%, to 1.40% in May. The 2080 Super followed shortly behind with 0.58% (gained 0.09%). All the AMD products posted lukewarm gains, with the 5700 XT accounting for just 0.67% of all Steam gamers, still notably less than the RTX 2080 Ti’s 0.83%. Despite featuring the ancient Polaris GPUs, the RX 570 and 580 still continue to sell rather well, thanks to their dirt cheap prices.

On the CPU side, AMD’s Ryzen CPUs continue to gain, slowly and steadily, with an overall increase of nearly 1% in May, bringing Team Red’s market share to 23%, the highest it’s been in quite a while. None of Intel’s higher-end CPUs seem to be gaining steam on Steam, and the popular ones are mostly limited to the Core i3-9100F and the 9400F.
