The average gaming PC - 5 years ago vs today

PC gaming can be an expensive hobby, with gamers constantly upgrading their hardware to meet the needs of the latest titles.

Due to the price of new hardware, however, many PC gamers are content to use mid-range components for extended periods to save money.

Over time, users will upgrade - and this results in "the average gaming PC" getting more powerful each year.

Last I checked, the 1060 only has a 6gig and 3gig (crippled) version. No 2G.

I think you missed the part of 'average'.

It's an average collation of data.

Using archived data from the Steam Hardware Survey, we compared the average gaming PC on Steam today with its counterpart from five years ago to see how big the upgrade has been.
