Renowned tech YouTuber Linus Sebastian was invited to Valve’s HQ for a some hands-on time with the upcoming Valve Steam Deck. While he was limited to only an hour and a half with the device, he was able to get some basic performance metrics, compare it to similar machines, and provide a lot of insights into Valve’s mini-pc handheld. He even goes so far as to test screen response, test Netflix, and examine the unit under a thermal camera.
As expected, the RDNA 2 based GPU portion of the Steam Deck’s APU substantially outperforms the previous generation’s Vega based GPU cores.
