And Quad Cores are almost 50% of the Survey, so Ryzen must be kind of irrelevant failure, right?RTX cards are 8.8% and yet the 1060 by itself is 11.80%. Your right the market did speak they decided to not upgrade as the current cost of new cards. Also Pascal is 34.79% as per steam hardware survey which shows just how loudly people think it's not worth upgrading, so yes their choice was clear.
You have to recognize that not everyone runs out upgrade annually, nor even every two years, and when people upgrade, what do what with their old cards? Burn them? As long as cards are usable, they will stay in circulation. Pascal was NVidia biggest success stories ever, they will be in circulation for a long time. I don't think anyone is arguing that Turing was a bigger success than Pascal.
But 8.8% is not bad for RTX cards given how expensive the RTX cards are, while Navi cards have yet to reach 1%.
