Valve’s Steam Deck can play your entire Steam library, including graphically demanding games like Control and Doom Eternal, on the go.
That’s the pitch, at least. Cramming PC hardware in a device slightly larger than the Nintendo Switch isn’t easy. Thermal throttling and battery performance could dampen expectations. Still, there’s reason to hope the Steam Deck will overcome its obstacles and conquer your Steam library.
“It is very easy to expect any sort of console-like big game will at least get 30 frames per second at decent settings on its 720p screen,” Alex, the Low Spec Gamer, a YouTube creator who focuses on entry-level gaming hardware, said in a Zoom interview.
