Valve has finally revealed its Switch-like all-in-one gaming PC—the Steam Deck.
The Steam Deck features a 7-inch touchscreen with a 1280-by-800 resolution and 60 Hz refresh rate. Its computing and graphical processing power is handled by a custom AMD CPU based on the Zen 2 microarchitecture and a custom AMD GPU based on RDNA 2. The system comes with 16GB of RAM.
The controls include thumbsticks, trackpads, and a rather weirdly placed D-pad and four-button layout. Trigger buttons can also be found at the back of the device. In terms of software, players will be able to run games from their Steam libraries.
Valve’s official announcement of the Steam Deck came only a few weeks after reports surfaced of a hardware prototype, most features of which carried over onto the real thing.
The base Steam Deck model is priced at $399 for 64GB of eMMC storage. The most expensive model, at $649, has 512 GB storage.
