Are you a Mac or PC? Do you use Steam? Well the results of Valve’s annual hardware survey reveal that some Apple models outgun Windows-based PCs in a number of areas. While a majority of Windows PCs have 2GB or 3GB of memory, 53 percent of Macs sport 4GB of RAM. The survey also found that 17 percent of Windows PCs used a single CPU, while over 90 percent of Macs running Steam utilized a dual-core. As for internet connectivity, 65 percent of Mac gamers reported download speeds over 2Mbit compared to under half of Windows PCs.
But PC gamers shouldn’t feel too bad because in one of the most important areas for gaming – graphics cards – Mac computers were found to be severely lacking; 32.5 percent of Macs featured decent graphics capabilities, while the top six Windows GPUs reported were all found to be capable of handling most games.
