The rumors were true: Valve’s handheld gaming PC is real.
On Thursday, the company debuted Steam Deck, which is launching this December for $399. The product promises to run all your favorite games from Steam, including AAA titles, but from a portable device.
To pull this off, the hardware uses an AMD APU chip, which includes both a CPU and dedicated graphics built into the silicon. The chip itself features a four-core/eight-thread CPU built with AMD’s older Zen 2 architecture that can achieve a 3.5GHz max clock speed.
