Oculus has released data on the hardware people are running Oculus software one for the four weeks ending on March 19. According to the data on CPUs, Intel leads AMD at 89.1% with AMD processors powering just 10.9% of the computers surveyed. This is not too surprising and roughly matches the numbers in the Steam Hardware Survey, though it is interesting the only AMD CPU to crack the top 15 is the FX-8350 (at 2.1%) and none of the popular Ryzen CPUs surpassed the 1.8% of the Intel Core i7-4790. The top two CPUs are the i7-6700K (9.8%) and i7-7700K (8.3%) while the newer i7-8700K is at the number eight position (2.8%).
On the GPU side, NVIDIA is in a commanding 92.2% of Oculus software running computers, compared to AMD's 7.8%. The three top GPUs are hardly surprising, being the GTX 1070 (19.4%), GTX 1080 (17.3%), and the GTX 970 (10.4%). The first AMD GPU to appear on the top 15 list is the RX 480 with 2.0% and the RX 580 is next with 1.4%, taking the eleventh and twelfth slots. The GTX 960 (1.3%) separates the RX 580 from the R9 200 series and R9 390 series, which both came in at 1.0%. AMD fares a little better in the current Steam Hardware Survey data, but NVIDIA still clearly holds the crown over its competitors there too.
