Though Nintendo has dominated the handheld market for the last decade, Valve has announced a new competitor in that market with the release of their own portable Steam Deck. The console comes with a seven-inch screen and relies on SteamOS. Valve seems to be marketing it as a mini-PC as much as they are a console, as the system supports keyboard/mouse, and can be plugged into external displays.
More from the console’s Steam page:
We 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.
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.
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.
