One sorce of data is Steam's hardware survey. Unfortunately they
include AVX2, but their most recent stats show that 88.6% of their
overall userbase has a CPU supporting AVX1. Limiting that to Linux
users the number drops to 87.2%.
A survey among Steam's customers is presumably heavily biased towards
beefy gaming machines with brand-new high-end processors. If as many as
11% lack even AVX1 in that dataset, then there must be a much higher
percentage without the newer AVX2 among non-gaming desktops and laptops.
