Looks like Valve's fix is to increase the dead zones on the analog sticks, I hope there isn't a lasting hardware issue. The silver lining is that the sticks can get replaced easily I guess.

It's safe to say that Nintendo has noticed that Yuzu runs on the Deck :olol:

In this video we see just how well the all-new Valve STeam deck handled some of our favorite emulators like Dreamcast using Redream, PSP with PPSSPP, Sega Saturn ANd PS1 Using RetroArch, GC using with the dolphin EMulator, Orginal Xbox using CXBX Reloaded, PS2 with PCSX2 and PS3 using RPCS3! This new X86 Ryzen powered handheld known as the STeam Deck makes for an awesome EMulation Machine!

I was hoping that he got Launchbox running in Linux, oh well :olol: It's good to see some Windows benchmarks, though the community says performance is a bit better in SteamOS.

It’s bad when a Switch game runs better on a Switch clone emulating a Switch than on the original hardware.

Join Rich for a journey back to the launch of Elden Ring on PC, how badly it ran on Steam Deck during the final days of the review period - and then how Valve's optimisations via the Proton compatibility layer transformed the game. A handheld PS4? Better than Xbox One S? Find out for yourself... and yeah, tests on two high-end PCs with the 1.02.03 patch...

Steam has given me Linux brain, I'm really close to installing Pop OS and trying out for my main OS. I don't use my PC for much else than gaming and web browsing. My one hitch is Adobe Creative Cloud, so I need to assess my options here. I could just dual boot but then I read about having a GPU passthrough with Virtualbox so I could get decent performance in Illustrator and such without rebooting.

Used GPU prices are thawing out, so then I'm sitting here wondering if I buy an old one to put in my PCIe 3.0 slot dedicated to VM. Then my 2060 gets throttled from 16x to 8x and the second GPU would only get 4x.

The Steam deck is prohibitely expensive now. Literally 6 months of salary. Fuck this market.

The Steam Deck is the premiere handheld gaming PC, but can Valve's design - and AMD's low-power APU - produce visuals suitable for a 4K TV in docked mode? Oliver Mackenzie investigates how up-scaling tech and careful game selection can produce impressive results - and reveals a few issues that can hamper the docked experience.
