Valve Giving a Suprise With Steam Deck Launching

Velve luncur Steam Deck – Valve launch a game hand product, besides the players generally play on steam PC, and now Valve will launch Steam Deck. The plan to establish the product is on December 2021, and Steam Deck is supported by steam.

Steam Deck is not a console game; however, a Portable PC plugs into a PC Monitor or Television. Steam Deck will operate on a new SteamOS version, based on Linux Valve Operating System. Though you can play Windows games that Linux does not support, it can use Valve Compatible Technology, Proton, or delete Steam OS and install Windows.

When is Steam Deck’s release?

Steam Deck will start sell-off on December 2021. However, it does not mean to order in this year. The steam website announced “expected order availability” in Q1 2022 for the 64GB version, Q2 2022 for the 256GB version, and Q3 2022 for the 512GB version. The variant depends on each region. Too bad that the product is not yet available in Indonesia.

How much Steam Deck?

Steam Deck’s price depends on the version that you want. There are three versions based on size storage. The price of Steam Deck based on the website follows as:

  • $399 for the 64GB version, include case
  • $529 for the 256GB version, include Faster storage, case, Exclusive Steam Community profile bundle
  • $649 for the 512GB version, include Fastest storage, Premium anti-glare etched glass
    Exclusive carrying case, Exclusive Steam Community profile bundle, Exclusive virtual keyboard theme

What stands out on fastest storage?

Steam Deck’s exclusive version is the fastest NVMe SSD Storage, and the inexpensive version is register as eMMC (embedded MultiMediaCard) 64GB storage for the solution. The three versions will enable you to improve size storage with a MicroSD card.

When you plan to improve the storage, you probably want to waste your money on the fastest MicroSD card. We are not sure yet how to expand storage that operates on a device. However, each MicroSD card is slower rather than the fastest SSD.
