In July this year, Valve representatives announced a portable PC Steam Deck, which would support powerful AAA titles and all games available on the Steam platform.
Although Steam Deck will be powerful enough to handle every title in the Steam library, it will not cope with all the available games. Rock Paper Shotgun shared this information.
According to the source, Steam Deck will run on the Proton system developed by CodeWeavers. Thanks to this, SteamOS will support games originally intended for Windows. However, the problem arises, as not all productions in the Steam library are compatible with the Proton system.
So it seems that Steam Deck will be able to deal with any game from the Steam library, but the Proton system will prevent you from reaching all productions. Fortunately, it is currently known that at least 16,000 games available through Steam are compatible with the Proton system. Moreover, developers can solve this problem with an update.
It is worth remembering that this equipment will offer a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, with a maximum refreshment of 60 Hz. The Steam Deck will have an SD card slot and a built-in hard drive. The latter will be replaceable, but Valve does not recommend it to the end-user. The first copies are to be sent to users in December this year.
