The Steam Deck is a handheld gaming PC created by Valve. Picture a Nintendo Switch with standard PC hardware running standard PC games and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
The Steam Deck is fundamentally just a PC. It uses standard PC hardware and runs standard PC operating systems like Linux and Windows—we’ll get to the software in a moment.
Valve’s Pierre-Loup Griffais revealed hardware specifications to IGN. Every Steam Deck uses the AMD Zen 2 CPU and RDNA 2 GPU architecture, and they all come with 16GB of RAM. And of course, it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
