The official announcement of Steam Deck was produced this very night, with Valve displaying all the information and details of this laptop that allow us to enjoy our Steam library wherever we want. While we have already been able to enjoy the first gameplays, Today July 16 at 7:00 p.m. (Spanish peninsular time) will be available the reserves of the three different models that we detail below. The first units will be shipped this December. In order to avoid resellers, only one Steam Deck can be reserved for each Steam account, and you have to have made a purchase in the Valve store before June 2021, which prevents new accounts from being created to reserve the console.

Steam Deck and its different models to reserve

As it is SteamDeck

Steam Deck features a 7 “touch screen and has a built in AMD Zen 2 + RDNA 2 custom APU, delivering 1.6 teraflops power. While that number is less than the 1.8 TFlops on the PS4, the truth is that the Steam console offers a more modern and efficient architecture, which results in it having better performance than Sony’s console. In fact, in laptop mode it offers a resolution of 1280×800.

The platform has capacitive touch sensors and two trackpads, as with gyroscopes that allow us to aim better. But if these controls do not convince you when playing certain games, we can also connect a mouse, keyboard, controllers or any other peripheral thanks to its different ports (it has several USB); We can also take advantage of the wireless connections of the console for this.

Steam Deck connectivity

On the other hand, we will not only be able to play our Steam games wherever we want: we will also be able to connect the device to a TV or monitor thanks to the docking station, which will be sold separately and has not yet been revealed. The battery, on the other hand, is expected to last between 7 or 8 hours.; although it is possible that the most demanding games end up depleting the energy after 3-4 hours. Steam Deck comes with SteamOS 3.0, based on Linux, installed: but Valve has already made it clear that we can install any software or operating system.
