What are Steam Decks and Enter to Win One?

To be honest, when I first saw the Steam Deck, I thought it was a big rip off, or at least a mini low end. gaming computer It has the price, portability, and size of an expensive tablet (but with game controls). Apparently I was partly right. AMD makes very good processors that are capable of screaming ‘Oh my God’ at that speed. And you can imagine what it would be like to combine that with Steam using a custom operating system (OS) specifically designed to run games.

Silencing (or minimizing) all “background noise” in your OS, such as main and background processes, security protocols, etc., allows the resources normally dedicated to such things to be used for running the game itself. This may or may not speed up your game significantly, depending on your hardware and other things. But most operating systems aren’t as specialized for running games as Steam OS is. Windows is a great multi-purpose OS, but it wasn’t built specifically for gaming. Specialized tools are usually better than Jack-of-all-trades items if they are specialized. So all things considered, Steam Deck might cut it, but I’m afraid it doesn’t run the game as well as it’s advertised. Being a portable PC and advertised as capable enough to run AAA titles is not very convincing.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at its tech specs. It’s running a Zen 2 4c/8t CPU with a max speed of 3.5GHz and a min speed of his 2.4GHz. As shown above, this is quite impressive for a small package.that is AMD GPUs It has 8 RDNA 2 CUs, but it’s really unclear what kind of graphics card it is. But apparently it runs between 1GHz and 1.6GHz, so that’s something. For now, there’s something that’s grabbing my attention.

Steam decks contain batteries. If you’re a long-session gamer like me, you probably want to stay connected to your charger all the time. Gaming sessions can last up to 5 hours if you have the guts and the time. The fact that the battery life is short scares me in case of a crash but there’s the ability to put the system into sleep mode and pause the game directly at your current location and immediately return to the game So what happens if the battery dies or you lose your progress? Not interested in purchasing. Some data protection is required. It might have a hard drive inside, but what if it won’t turn on? Disassemble the whole thing, clean the drive somehow, then import the data somewhere? Thank you very much.

Another thing I’m more interested in than I’m concerned about is the idea and ability to connect to a computer and stream games from it. If so, why would you want to stream the game from your PC? Isn’t that a bit strange? I mean, it’s a cool feature, but something seems a little fishy.

Then there’s a small dock, sold separately, that you can plug into. You can connect the dock to your TV. This is what actually surprised me the most. I love the idea of ​​having a portable gaming device that can plug into any TV and play on it, as long as you have the right’s a bit like nintendo switchbut compatible with almost anything.

But maybe it’s too harsh for Steam decks.To be fair, if you want the equivalent of low to mid-tier gaming computer (as far as I can tell), and if you don’t want to buy an entire case for it and don’t want to spend the extra money, Steam Deck seems like something for you. We recommend purchasing a full desktop gaming pc, but not everyone has that kind of cash. More affordable access aimed at console players who want to play PC games and everyone else who may not be able to afford something as powerful or expensive as the full he desktop. It seems like an easy one. Costs range from $399 to $649.00 before tax, depending on the type of storage and other accessories that come with it. So basically $400 and $650.Not too bad if you want portable gaming pc in your hands. But hey, I’m just a voice on the internet. Please make your own decision.
