Recently, news agency V released the results of Steam's November Hardware and Software survey. In this month's ranking edition, the graphics card has changed a lot, with the RTX 30 finally becoming mainstream hardware two years after its release.

Compared to 73% of the 4090, the RTX 3060 is undoubtedly the most attractive reason to impress players in terms of cost performance.

Therefore, for most players, dessert grade graphics cards are not only cost-effective, but also meet the performance of daily use, not all players will pursue the ultimate game picture.
