14th Gen Core i9-14900K Becomes Intel’s Bestselling CPU, Followed by the i7-14700K

This trend can be observed at most American retailers, including Newegg, Amazon, and BestBuy

The Core i9-14900K has seemingly become Intel’s bestselling CPU, beating every 13th and 14th Gen chip across major retailers. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D remains the #1 top seller, but the 14900K isn’t that far behind, distinguishing itself as the most popular Core processor. The Core i7-14700K closely follows its i9 sibling, appearing in the lower half of most bestselling charts.

The 14th Gen chips have effectively replaced their 13th Gen predecessors at discounted price tags. This trend can be observed at most American retailers, including Newegg, Amazon, BestBuy, B&H, and Microcenter.

The slow but steady increase in the popularity of the 14th Gen Core processors has granted Intel a chunk of the Windows CPU share, the largest bump in quite some time. Team Blue now accounts for 67.91% of Windows gamers on Steam. AMD has dropped to 32.05%, the lowest since October last year. Linux users, however, continue to prefer Ryzen processors, granting Team Red over 70% of the market in the FOSS segment.

NVIDIA RTX 60-Class GPUs Lead the GeForce Mob

In the GPU section, NVIDIA’s RTX 60-class graphics cards dominated the scene, led by the GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 4060, RTX 3070, and RTX 4070. Collectively, the 60-class cards accounted for more than half of the GPU upgrades this February. None of the Radeon GPUs demonstrated a net gain among Steam gamers.
