Valve's portable PC Steam deck

Assuming none of this breaks in the same way Cyberpunk broke and everything works as advertised, this is amazing.

The only question is can it play modern games at 60 FPS?

If so it’s literally perfect for what it’s designed for.
It’s cheaper than a PC, better than a console.

PC exclusives

Free multiplayer

Portable

FOV sliders

More graphic options

M&K

Again the frames are the only thing in question.

And we know it can play some games in above 30 FPS because they were able to play Portal above 30 (1:50 second video)

Its rendering at 720p with a 7 inch screen with basically a standard gtx 1050 so I’m assuming yes.
if you dock it the external power source lets it render at higher resolution to a TV.
I’m just happy it wont be melting in my lap like a laptop and can be played more comfortably. Doubles as a windows PC so you can run other game launchers & emulators or even cloud game like Geforce Now.

If they market it well it should draw in the casual audience (console-onlys) that think PCs are too complex to deal with.
