    I believe they mentioned on their discord it won't be RDNA2 for graphics.

    Is there any information on when valve will release steamos? I'd like to try it with the NUC I use for steam remote play on my tv.

    Meanwhile, here's SteamOS without Valve https://github.com/theVakhovskeIsTaken/holoiso
    (it's direct rip from SteamDeck, has some quirks and requirements, like requiring specific software to flash the ISO, NVIDIA is apparently no go and Intel iffy at best)

    1080p in such a tiny handheld screen is complete nonsense.

    Don't hate , i am sure its going to look amazing and on such a small screen you can still run at lower resolutions.

    Its probably amoled with senile subpixels arrangement. So 1080p is actually a requirement. Unless you want to get lots of color fringe and weird mesh-like effect in a screen at that size

    Got my Steam Deck order email today :]

    Excited to get it and play around with it. I'm also as equally excited to see it evolve over time, as well as the effects it has on other aspects of Steam and PC gaming.

    Lots of potential for this device.
