Valve is always trying to move PC gaming forward and what better way to give it to people so they can play a very small computer. Steam Deck is a handheld gaming computer that connects directly to your Steam library and allows you to play all your favorite titles on the go.
The Steam Deck is currently scheduled to begin shipping in December this year, just in time for Christmas. The valve has not yet confirmed the exact start date of the shipment. The reservation of the facility, which will include a booking fee for trying to keep the scalpers in check, will start on July 16 at 12:00 CT.
The Steam Deck will be available in three different models. The base Steam Deck is $ 399 and includes 64 GB of built-in MultiMediaCard memory. The mid-level model is $ 529 and will include 256 GB of faster NVMe SSD storage, a briefcase and an exclusive Steam Community profile package. The top-of-the-line model will be $ 679 and will feature the fastest storage with a 512 GB NVMe SSD, premium anti-glare glass and an exclusive virtual keyboard theme.
The Steam Deck is powered by a custom-made AMD APU, which offers Zen 2 + RDNA 2 and thus provides robust manual gaming performance. The device will also include both drumsticks and trackpads, which will make it easier to control regardless of the game you play.
