Steam Deck: First Hands-On With Valve’s Handheld Gaming PC

We went to Valve's office to go hands-on with its new handheld gaming PC, the Steam Deck. IGN's own Bo Moore goes in-depth on how its controller feels, its desktop mode, its price and models, and a whole lot more.

The Steam Deck, is a handheld gaming PC with a form-factor similar to that of a Nintendo Switch. No hard release date has been given, but the Steam Deck has a launch planned for Holiday 2021, with a pre-order reservation system launching in the near future. The price starts at $399, with models that have more storage at $529 and $649 as well

  • 2 TFLOPS if he's referring to fp32 puts it about on the level of the GTX 1050 ti, which might not sound impressive but considering it's a cute little handheld that's not so bad at all.

  • I'm wondering how future proof it's going to be. I'm guessing graphics settings will still be available as standard. Also when connecting to a monitor, will the larger resolution effect the FPS? Or is the resolution just upscaled?
