      pointed out, I thought they were just shitposting, I didn't expect it to actually be shit.

      Agreed. The Switch is a much better device with better battery life, better display, better ergonomics and better games.

      100% correct, ARM architecture is far superior for mobile devices

      steam got owned in the handheld war, should've stuck with just being a publisher

      >should've stuck with just being a publisher
      Valve was never a publisher, zoom-zoom.

      the deck will get better with each new iteration but the current model sucks ass

      >wifi is shit
      Mine only goes out when I try docking it for some weird reason but I think that has to do with how the Deck communicates with older routers or something

      Anyway nintendo sucks

      >Last I heard there's literally thousands of Valve verified games that can run perfectly without any tweaking

      besides shovelware and a few valve titles, the game running with fans on 100% with barely readable text is not what I would call optimised.

      In addition to this, the tech demo they put out, aperture desk job also has the fans spin up to a very loud volume during the game. They can't even optimise their own tech demo

        Not in the case of the Switch's ARM hardware, its performance per watt is worse than the Steam Deck's x86 chip.

          to be fair, the switch hardware is pretty old.

          i just slapped in smash ult with all dlc and it fucking works on deck 60fps.
          deck is literally going to play botw 2 day 1.
          this is kinda fucked up

          to be clear my op wasn't about emulation, I have a pc and emulate everything I can. I have no doubt the deck and a decent PC will run switch games better than the switch after some time.

            True. Interestingly, Nvidia also doesn't have any current ARM chips that can outperform AMD's x86 ones in PPW, which is probably why the Switch 2 is taking so long.

        what game

        Verified or unsupported, everything I've tried runs great. Only modern/unoptimized AAA run with the fan at an audible RPM at all.

            Dark Souls PTDE runs at like 11W, so no fan noise and nearly 4 hours of battery life. It's like the perfect game for the device so I don't know what you're talking about.
            Elden Ring is a modern AAA game, so yeah, it's gonna run at like 20W TDP if you change no settings. After TDP capping, 30fps cap and decreasing lighting and AO, I got it down to 11W in caves and dungeons and 16W in overworld while keeping native res.

            never heard of the other game

              >very few games optimised
              I'm having 0 problems with most games, only had a problem (sadly) with Wayfarer 2. Maybe you wanted a walled garden where the developer sits down with (You)r trans ass and holds your hand to a steady perfectly paced 30fps and not a Linux machine that needs GE-Proton from ProtonUpQt to run Fall Guys at 60fps max settings btw.

              OP doesnt realize it's just a PC and you need to do a little work just so it can run better to his specifications but that's what you get when console gamers first touch a real PC for the first time outside their walled gardens.

        So yeah, that Anon you're responding to is still correct. A fuckton of modern AAA games do run well when you've adjusted the settings.

        Yeah, I really still don't get why though? I guess they really wanted to make something unique, it did come out in the wake of the Wii when consoles seemed to focus on gimmicks more than performance. Just goes to show that different isn't always better.
