Valve is finally getting into the handheld gaming business. The rumors were right and the Steam Deck is coming this year: a handheld device that can play any game in your Steam library. It's aiming to be the Nintendo Switch for PC gaming, essentially, though the Steam Deck can do a lot more than just play games.
When inventory is available from around December 2021, you will get to choose your Steam Deck from the following configurations
1. 64GB • eMMC • Carrying case 2. 256GB • NVMe SSD • Faster storage • Carrying case • Exclusive Steam Community profile bundle 3. 512GB • NVMe SSD • Fastest storage • Premium anti-glare etched glass • Exclusive carrying case • Exclusive Steam Community profile bundle • Exclusive virtual keyboard theme
What makes the steam deck so exciting:
1. You get portability meeting power
Valve partnered with AMD to create Steam Deck's custom APU, optimized for handheld gaming. It is a Zen 2 + RDNA 2 powerhouse, delivering more than enough performance to run the latest AAA games in a very efficient power envelope.
2. Your Steam Library, anywhere
Once you've logged into Steam Deck, your entire Steam Library shows up, just like any other PC. You'll be able to find your collections and favorites - exactly where you left them.
3. Control with comfort
The Steam Deck was built for extended play sessions—whether you're using thumbsticks or trackpads—with full-size controls positioned perfectly within your reach. The rear of the device is sculpted to comfortably fit a wide range of hand sizes.
