Steam hardware survey denotes increase in lower-end PC use

Valve has released the results of its latest Steam Hardware & Software Survey, and during June 2012, the firm noted an increase in Intel graphics as well as increased use of older dual and single-core systems. It also noted an increase in the use of DirectX 9. With resolution, 25% of participants used 1920x1080, while 18% preferred 1366x768, and 7% used 1600x900 resolution.
