Episode notes

Valve has just launched the Steamdeck, a piece of hardware that could change gaming forever. The Steamdeck is an all-in-one portable gaming device that can run AAA games on the go, with Valve calling it "the most powerful, full-featured gaming handheld in the world."

Nathan Bliss and Matthew Aldus talk about the Steamdeck, go into the specs, discuss what it means for the gaming industry, what it could be used for, discuss right-to-repair and how Valve are taking a different approach to Apple, and why companies like Microsoft should be worried.

Powered by a custom AMD APU, the Steamdeck is optimized for handheld gaming, featuring Zen 2 and RDNA 2 graphics which delivers more than enough performance to run the latest AAA games, and efficiently too. And, it's very affordable for the specs.
