Valve Corporation introduced the unique handheld game console Valve Steam last summer, but delayed the start of sales several times. Fortunately, the advanced gaming console can be pre-ordered on February 25 this year, and has already been on sale since February 28. With so much interest in the cutting edge of innovation, it’s no surprise that they quickly run out of stock.
The Valve Steam Deck game console is based on the powerful and energy-efficient AMD Zen 2 processor with four physical and eight virtual cores with an eight-core AMD RDNA 2 graphics card, and there is also 16 GB of fast system memory and a 60-inch high-quality screen 17.8 cm or 7 inches with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels (16 to 10 aspect ratio). All games on the new console will run at least 30 frames per second.
It is also interesting that from now on, users of advanced PCs can install Windows 10. Valve has prepared special drivers for the Steam Deck game console for graphics cards, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connections. This actually means that the new game console can be used as a Windows PC.
Although Valve has developed custom drivers for the Steam Deck game console for Windows 10, there are still some limitations. Audio works only over Bluetooth and USB-C and the default operating system cannot be maintained. In addition, it is not yet possible to install Windows 11 on modernity.
Although Valve has confirmed that it will try to fix most software bugs in the future, this process is likely to be very slow. In addition, installing Windows 10 on Steam Deck will result in the loss of the right to claim warranty and support. Therefore, installation is at the risk of the console owner.
