According to the latest research report from JPR and A.I, 1080p resolution is still the most common choice for the majoriy of gamers. The report also reveals a big rise for AMD hardware.

Jon Peddie Research in partnership with Antikythera Intelligence and Research (A.I) and website Wccftech held a survey of PC gamers from more than 3,5 million Wccftech visitors. The research mostly focused on PC gaming related questions such as buying plans, market attitudes and currently-owned hardware and equipment.

The survey resulted in 4,477 responses to 26 questions in October 2019. Survey results combined with the respondent’s demographic data produced 143,264 answers that reveal a lot of interesting information about the prefered hardware and resolutions.

According to research, 1080p is still the most popular standard in PC gaming, confirming the earlier data from Steam, which claimed that only 6 per cent of Steam users play at resolutions higher than 1080p. Sadly, we don't have detailed info since the full access to research costs thousands of dollars.

Wccftech shared some details in where they claim that 41 per cent of installed CPUs are AMD's products. This is not surprising since AMD's Ryzen CPUs have been on the rise in the last few years and according to some predictions, 2020 could be another great year for AMD.

As for the graphics cards, AMD will have to work hard to stay close to Nvidia. This will not be an easy task as the majority of participants plan to purchase Nvidia's newest graphics cards.

The single largest response came from the US, followed by the UK. The report also reveals what PC gamers plan to buy on a worldwide, regional and country basis. It's mostly intended for OEMs, component suppliers and partners who certainly welcome such information.
