    Objectively better than the switch, but if you're going to use it like a PC then you should just get a PC. If you're going to use it while traveling then it's the best handheld you can buy outside of a full gaming laptop which will run you close to 2k for a good one.

        Why would you get a laptop instead of a desktop PC? Even the 3000$ gaming laptops struggle to get more than 60 minutes of battery life and >30fps in any demanding game when not plugged in, and if you're gonna use a device plugged in all the time, why get a laptop?

        This is objectively false. It gets the same amount of battery life as Doom on twice the res and graphical fidelity. have a nice day Chang.

        >3 1/2 hours for the Deck
        >3 hours and 18 minutes on a Switch with low brightness and airplane mode (with worse settings and 480p res mind you)
        Same with Eternal. Couldn't find battery data on Ghost Runner for Switch but I'm sure it's the exact same story, albeit with the Switch running that game at 20fps lower than low settings.

        If you run the games at Switch level quality (Low, sup 720p) you will get Switch comparable battery life.

        [...]
        [...]
        The battery life and thermal situation were obviously going to be suboptimal, with a x86_64 processor in the thing. The Switch is ARM, which is way more power-efficient. There really isn't a better option for running existing PC games without some insanely-advanced recompiler, like what Dolphin's dynrec does, and that's going from PowerPC to x86_64. x86_64 to ARM while maintaining any performance at all would be a herculean task.

        What I'm reading, though, is that you can often get a battery life of upwards of 4 hours by locking to 30fps, and you wouldn't get much better than that battery life or framerate on the Switch anyway.

        [...]
        Fuck off, dipshit. I want a Deck, but there's nothing valuable about shutting off your brain and denying reality.

        >30fps sub 720p is only acceptable when valve does it
        Or
        >the battery life is only 2 hours but at least it's 60fps!
        Holy shit the copium

        The Steam Deck has a much better battery life than the Switch even running games at significantly higher settings.

                Not sure if it's possible but if Valve could make battery life saving settings a single button click, and it would reduce the screen refresh rate to 40hz, make games pick whatever setting allows for stable 30fps, also lower graphical fidelity to save battery, that feature would be a handy thing for the people who don't like tinkering too much.

      You can stretch it pretty far if you know what you're doing. You can get 8 hours with older console emulation and indieshit by tweaking shit.

      Don't forget you can get a USB hub with HDMI out and hook it up to an external monitor. Grab a M&K and you can turn your Deck into a desktop PC. Bonus points if it has an ethernet port to download games faster.

      I don't see much reason not to almost exclusively play all my games on PC when I want to play vidya at my desk, and my deck for when I want to play vidya in every other situation.

      if you plan on using it for browsing the internet and shitposting on Ganker then you should definitely look into getting a keyboard to pair with it. I'm thinking about getting pic related personally just so I don't have to use the touch screen. it's not that it isn't functional, I just don't want finger smudges all over my screen constantly.

            Let's gloss over that you're emulating on Linux and you're not buying a console. Now that you've wiped the Valve cum off your lips, no, you're not buying this thing as a Switch replacement; that's stupid, you can pay $100 less and have a Switch. You're buying a PC with a controller and a screen built in.

            "Well what's the difference lmao!" you ask, a bubble of sperm popping as you exhale.

            The difference is one wants Vulkan support so that it can emulate 3D Switch games worth a pinch.

              I already replaced my Switch because i like games and the Switch has no games. The steam deck has more cheaper games, no online fees, so fucking much more over the Switch, you are only embarassjning yourself.

              You sound mad dude, and obsessed with cum in your mouth from the look of it. Thats not the "own" you think it is, you sound like a stupid fucking fanboy.

                The switch has no games, correct.
                It wasnt more expensive, I already had a massive library, wrong.
                Its not a Switch, its a Deck, has games, and shit that the Switch will never have like good online, free cloud saves, cheap games, performance, ergonomics, on the fly settings like TDP, emulation up the ass, voice chat built in, etc etc.

                Docks like the JSAUX one aren't going to brick the deck, anon. Docks bricking the Switch was only a problem with the Switch since it's not actually compliant with the USB-C standard and has insufficient overcurrent protection. Even normal devices being plugged into the USB-C port can fry a Switch.
                And if we're being truthful here, that's not a deck-exclusive problem. Chink devices just cause housefires in general. Always be careful what you're plugging into your devices.

      I always use gyro for any kind of FPS/TPS or just any kind of aiming in general. The question is what to do for broad movement. You can do high sensitivity stick/trackpads for broad movement and or you could do flick stick. Paired with gyro for precision, any input or combination of inputs above is workable.

      >performance wise
      Performance is mostly just common sense. You have a lot of ram to work with so anything related to textures can go as high as you want. The taxing settings are going to be things like MSAA and shadows, but on a game from a over decade ago like TF2 that could run at toasters even at the time it came out, it doesn't really matter.

        I remember everybody was jerking off TF2 Classic and Open Fortress over how much better they ran when they first appeared on the community's radar, then I tried them and they unironically do not run any better than actual default TF2 does. Actually they run a lot worse in high-intensity areas like a bunch of people fighting at once, and TF2 Classic is also fond of retarded player-counts like 32v32, so any performance gains are motot

                Vsync off always on steam deck (you get vsync anyway if you use the framelimiter, but even with it off i've never noticed tearing). You might want to try running the windows version running on proton, could give better performance. Just delete the files, set it to run with Proton Experimental in compatability options, and re-download. That will force the windows version over the linux version.

                You have to pick it in the game specific compatabitility options and then it will switch to the windows version. Some games like rocket league it's necessary to get the game working at all. GE is better yes, it's all the code of base Proton + a newer version of WINE + lots of codecs and game-specific fixes not in Proton. It used to have performance benefits as well with gamemode until some trannies got butthurt.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Cords are just any easy way to map more shit to the same buttons. It basically just multiplies the number of buttons you have to work with if you have a shoulder button free. You can do the same shit with action layers but sometimes action layers feel way less responsive when you bind them as a hold on a trigger or shoulder button.

      In AoE2 all of my face buttons and dpad are unit commands, if I hold down a bumper, the same face buttons become a way to access control groups. I use cords but they are messy as fuck and difficult to keep track of because they quickly clutter up the config menu. If I didn't have responsiveness problems with action layers I would be using those instead.

        The deck can already play the majority of AAA longer than 2 hours at framecaps you would want to use, especially with FSR. Portable batteries were already tested and good ones keep up with the power draw. No need to cope that you got one for $70.

          it's actually a bloodbath to compare a Deck or any RNDA2 iGPUs to Intel Xe, Intel has the worst drivers in the business, you know they have stutters in certain games, their drivers cause frametime wonkery and they also do not behave well at very low wattage compared to any Ryzens or the Deck's Van Gogh. The 6800U is a bit better than the Deck's hardware. I would recommend skipping any Intel based iGPU devices meant for gayming if one wants good battery life and good performance. Also the 1260P is the next gen compared to the Tiger Lake the Win max 1 uses

    It's a good deal, especially if you don't mind playing it on a wall plug. You can get so many games for dirt cheap on steam that it automatically beats out the switch. Most switch games have knockoffs on steam, some are just bad, some might even be better but there is so many more games that it's hard not to compare it to the switch and recommend it over.

    How could it be bad? It's a better Switch. More power, more games, more input options, better ergonomics. The battery life is unreal for the performance you get. You can pirate. You can emulate. It's cheap, and you don't need an expensive-ass proprietary dock or a subscription to play online. If you need proof of its success, just look at how Nintendo fans sperg out and seethe in any Steam Deck thread. Shit the thing has turned one dude into a literal schizophrenic.

      Adjust tdp.

      Not sure if it's possible but if Valve could make battery life saving settings a single button click, and it would reduce the screen refresh rate to 40hz, make games pick whatever setting allows for stable 30fps, also lower graphical fidelity to save battery, that feature would be a handy thing for the people who don't like tinkering too much.

      Next step is community setting profiles imo, do you can click and download settings to max battery with no performance drop. For example, I halved TDP and GFX speed by a bit more than half on some PS2 games, hades, hollow knight, older 3d games, it basically adds an hour and a half.

    Depending on your budget, it might be better to just get a gaming laptop. I got a decent one for around $700 that would make the deck shit itself in intimidation, but if you get one of the cheaper models then for the price and portability it's an ok package as long as you don't want to do anything in a desktop environment.

    I don't have one btw. I just think the value is in its portability for the most part. If you end up getting addicted to the more graphically intensive games, you will want to be able to play those at high resolutions on a larger screen with better controls and better frame rates, and at that point you may realize you should have just bought a laptop in the first place. Gaming laptops are getting surprisingly affordable for their performance now (if you don't buy from a shit company like Alienware), so I would consider it.

    It by no means performs as well as a fully kitted gaming pc but it is by far a better device overall, I have a gaming pc that beats the shit out of it in terms of performance but I've barely touched it since I got a steam deck, I can't play it outside or in bed or on the couch.
    If I go on a trip, I can't take my PC with me, but I can take my steam deck, which is nice.
    It's kind of like taking that sense of home and being able to play or do whatever you want with you wherever you want, which is kind of the ideal for handhelds I suppose.

    Anyone know if the 64gb flash version has the NVMe port on it still?

    I figure at a point there's going to be a market for replacement drives for it, and it'll be cheaper in my country to just buy the base model + a 3rd-party drive, vs. the official 512gb.

      Yes, theres only one board, they're all the same. The eMMC version has a little module of shit storage in the slot.

        Alright, good. I figure that drive alone is the main thing hurting Valve's wallet since they couldn't engineer it to handle your typical length NVMe.

        Yes the eMMC isn't soldered on, it's a stick of memory that you can replace. The only things separating a $400 Steam Deck from a $649 Steam Deck are the screen and an SSD.

        Screen was the same, just one has glass vs plastic or some shit no? I can replace that myself unless it's glued to the screen pretty well (since capacitor sensor and what not).

          All three have a glass screen but the 512GB model has some fancy anti-glare glass. A lot of people apparently prefer the normal glass, and you can get an anti-glare or matte screen protector if you want all the benefits.

      It's seriously dogshit and I have to force myself to use mine.

      They all have the same NVMe port, the eMMC is on a card that fits into it. You can throw pretty much any 30mm drive in it, it's cheaper to do that in any country, though valve says there could be heating/interference issues with the wifi.

    I'd get one for the sole purpose of emulating Saturn games if Saturn emulators weren't still such fucking dogshit.

      Its a decent gaming PC for its price and a good LAN device. If you have a gaming PC I don't think its worth it outside of LAN as its not that portable for something like a vacation.

      >Saturn
      Saturn emulation is more intensive than it should be due to how long it took for it to get well mapped, but it should emulate just fine. Gen 5 overall is pretty spot on today with a modest gaming machine. And Gen 6 as well, exception being Xbox.

            kept seeing a bunch of bullshit about using usbhelper but I couldn't get it to run on the deck.

              Only WiiU game I've got on my deck so far is MH3U but it copied across from my PC just fine. If you're stuggling to set up WiiUSBHelper on deck it might be a good idea to just do it on PC instead and copy the files across.

            Ah that's unfortunate. I'm guessing I need a windows machine to do all that and then transfer the file over? I was hoping I could get it working with just the deck.

    My real problem with the panel of the Steam deck isn't the color accuracy, it's the lack of any compensation for display persistence like modern IPS monitors where they invert voltages in patterns to prevent it
    Protip: never display 1hz flashes on the steam deck, leave the screen on the same image for more than an hour or play something like GBA F-zero unless you want display persistence for five whole minutes

    do you use the trackpad or the stick for shooters?
    I'm used to gyro aim but I don't know how to incorporate it on this thing properly

      I only have gyro engage if my thumb is on the right trackpad. Right joystick I leave as just a regular joystick.

      I don't use the right analog for anything, it's objectively inferior to the trackpad in every single scenario and game

    >Is it good as a first time gaming PC?
    >first time
    You're asking if someone without any PC gaming experience, let alone Linux gaming experience or a Steam library, should go directly from consoles to a Linux-based Steam handheld that runs over 85% of games through an experimental compatibility layer that doesn't always work? Probably not.
    I bought one though and I like it.

    Too expensive for a device that can't play Fortnite. Even Switch has it kek

      It could play Fortnite if Epic Games allowed it.
      EAC even got Proton support, but Epic wants their own games to run on everything except Linux, because they associate Linux with Valve now. In other words it's not so much a compatibility issue as a "Tim is butthurt" issue.

        How hard is it to boot to windows to play it?

        • 2 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          I don't know but it seems pointless to me. I didn't buy a Steam Deck just to play a game I could already have played on my phone. If you don't like any of the games that are playable on SteamOS, then simply not buying a Steam Deck is probably the right choice. But I know people who like to tinker will set up a dual boot on it anyway, just because they can.
