The hugely popular portable gaming console, the Nintendo Switch, will soon have a serious competitor in Steam Desk, a console developed by Valve.
The new Valve console features a 7-inch 720p touchscreen and is equipped with a gyroscope to control motion games.
Steam decks have a lot of buttons. Along with the two thumb controllers, there’s a D-pad, attached to the classic ABXY button, and two trackpads below the controllers. There are two more buttons on the two sides of the console and four more buttons on the back, two on each side.
The console is equipped with a Zen 2 CPU processor with 8 threads, AMD RDNA 2 graphics solution with 8 cores and 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. There are three storage options available: 64GB eMMC, 256GB NVMe SSD, and 512 NVME SSD.
There’s support for a memory card, 3.5mm audio output, and a USB-C port for power, HDMI, Ethernet, and data transfer. Like the Switch, the Steam Deck can be connected to a TV via the dock.
The manufacturer was pretty vague when it came to the autonomy of the console, which runs a newer version of SteamOS (based on Linux), saying only that it would take a few hours.
SteamOS will be available starting December and will cost $400, $530 or $650, depending on the storage location chosen.
