Valve announced that it will be conducting a Steamworks Virtual Conference: Steam Deck on Friday, November 12, starting at 10 am PT. The company mentioned that this Steam Deck Q&A session is to "share in-depth information and best practices to help make games a seamless experience on Steam Deck".
This is a one-day event that is open only to Steamworks developers. Topics for discussion include Steam Deck hardware, development without a dev-kit, Steam on Deck, Proton Support, Steam Input, Steam Deck Verified program, and APU deep dive with AMD.
The discussion on AMD APU might shed some light on how powerful the Steam Deck's custom AMD Zen 2 and RDNA 2 processor and graphics chip will be. Valve partnered with AMD to create Steam Deck's custom APU optimized for handheld gaming. It is a Zen 2 + RDNA 2 powerhouse to run the latest AAA games "in a very efficient power envelope".
Steam Deck is a gaming handheld from Valve to bring users portable gaming. Users will need a Steam account to play on the device. All the Steam games that a user has bought already using the existing Steam account can be played on this handheld gaming device. They can even stream games to the Steam Deck from another PC.
Developers can join the Steam Deck Q&A session by logging into Steamworks, Valve's developer website. There is a $100 entry fee for those who wish to participate.
"Following each talk, we will be hosting live Q&A sessions where we can dive into more of your questions," stated Valve in its blog post.click here!
