Powerful business laptop in a pocket console case: Steam Deck details



The Steam Deck is powered by the AMD Aerith processor, which has four cores based on the Zen2 microarchitecture with frequencies ranging from 2.4 GHz to 3.5 GHz. Valve says their goal was to offer stable clock speeds rather than focus on peak frequencies. The same applies to the 8 CU RDNA2 onboard GPU and clocked at 1.0 to 1.6 GHz.

The TDP of the system on the Aerith chip is in the range of 4 to 15 watts. Valve hasn’t implemented any artificial power cap, but is asking developers to implement it programmatically. In this case, the device must provide the same performance regardless of whether it is connected to a docking station or mobile.

In terms of memory, Valve opted to go with LPDDR5 as this is the technology that provides the best efficiency for this form factor. 16 GB should be enough for the future.

The Steam Deck will also support up to two 60Hz 4K displays via the built-in USB3 Gen2 / DisplayPort 1.4 DSC connector.
