Valve’s Steam Deck console testing for Windows
Valve has announced a Steam Deck game console that is capable of running all Steam games. Valve’s new SteamOS 3.0 game console is now testing Microsoft’s Windows installation on Steam Deck as well.
At the time of its initial announcement, Valve did not specify whether its Steam Deck console could be upgraded to Windows. In an interview with PC Gamer, Valve said that during the Steam Deck development, they focused heavily on Windows 10, not to mention Windows 11. At this point, Valve means that during the Steam Deck development, Microsoft has not yet announced Windows 11. Therefore, they are currently working with AMD to bring the Steam Deck mobile game console to Windows 7.
Although Valve is working with AMD to bring Steam Deck to Windows 11, they are not yet 100% sure that their new mobile game console will be compatible with Windows 11. To be able to upgrade to Windows 11, Microsoft requires a 64-bit CPU with 2 cores from 1GHz, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The important thing is to make sure that the device can support TPM (Trusted Platform Module) version 2.0 security as well.
