New report on gamers buying attitudes and ownership

A worldwide survey of end-users from the 3.5 million Wccftech site visitors resulted in 4,477 responses to 26 questions. Combined with their demographic data that produced 143,264 answers to critical buying plans, and currently owned equipment.

Some of the results were quite surprising such as the large installed base of AMD processors, plans to purchase Nvidia’s newest graphics add-in-board, and attitudes about pricing for motherboards, AIBs, and VR HMDs.

This report is intended for OEMs, component suppliers, and partners.

The report consists of two parts, the written report, and the raw data database of the survey.

A sample of some of the questions is shown here:

  • What AIB do you currently own?
  • Do you have an Nvidia Turing card?
  • Are you planning on updating your graphics card?
  • Historically, how have you bought graphics cards?
  • What is the most you would ever pay for a top-notch AIB?
  • What CPU do you currently own?
  • Are you planning on upgrading this year?
  • What is the most you would pay for an excellent CPU? 
  • How much would you be willing to spend on a great motherboard?
  • Which AIB vendor do you trust the most?
  • Do you have a VR capable system?
  • How much are you willing to pay for the VR HMD?
  • How much RAM does your system have?
