Valve has released the Steam Deck console last week and it comes with a 1280×720 resolution however it might not matter what resolution is being offered to the users as the product performance may prove to be below par as the FPS provided by the console.
Moreover, Valve is still struggling quite a bit to find games that can be supported by the Steam Deck’s hardware.
The Valve Steam Deck comes with an AMD APU containing a quad-core Zen 2 CPU equivalent to an AMD RDNA 2 graphics added on with 6GB of LPDDR5 RAM.
There are also three storage options which are 64GB eMMC storage for $399, 256GB NVMe SSD storage for $529, and 512GB of SSD storage for $649, further on the storage can also be expanded using a micro SD card.
A professional gaming organization called the PC Gamer have given their review regarding the console “If people are still valuing high frame rates and high resolutions on [other] platforms. I think that content will scale down to our 800p, 30Hz target really well. If people start heavily favouring image quality, we might be in a position where I might have trade-offs, but we haven’t really seen that yet.”
“This is the first time we’ve achieved the level of performance that is required to really run the latest generation of games without problems. All the games we wanted to be playable is, really, the entire Steam library. We haven’t really found something we could throw at this device that it couldn’t handle.”
The Steam Deck will be start shipping from December onward this year.
