It’s been a year since microsoft He launched Windows 11the latest operating system from the Redmond company, to which Steam gamers have gradually migrated.
According to a report published on the website of Digital Trends, 25 percent of gamers using Valve’s gaming platform are already using the new software.
The Steam Hardware and Software Survey for September 2022 shows that nearly one in four PCs playing games on Steam now runs Windows 11, reaching exactly 24.84% of all Steam userswhich represents an increase of 1.06% compared to August.
This number is particularly interesting due to the more stringent Windows 11 system update requirements, plus a big issue for gaming in the 22H2 update that affected NVIDIA cards.
Windows 11 22H2 problems
The Windows 11 22H2 update has caused some problems, such as slowing down file transfers by 40%, or performance issues and frame drops when playing games. NVIDIA quickly released a fix in the form of a software update.
This jump in Windows 11 upgrades from Windows 10 suggests the growing confidence of consumers buying newer Windows 11 PCs. Another reason could be that the dodge of upgrading to 11 has decreased since Microsoft rolled back the bugs in version 22H2.
It’s also encouraging to see the slow rise of NVIDIA Ampere video cards, especially the RTX 3060. It’s another sign that supply and demand are steadily growing, while prices normalize as the year ends.
Even 25 percent of Steam users on Windows 11 is small, but sooner rather than later the rest will migrate version.
