One to have for those new gaming handhelds
Western Digital has unveiled its new WD_BLACK SN770M NVMe SSD, an M.2 2230 form-factor SSD aimed at new handheld consoles like the Valve Steam deck, ASUS ROG Ally, and others.
Low price, same one-year warranty, and minor cosmetic blemishes
Valve has started to sell refurbished Steam Deck handheld consoles, "promising a reliable, high-quality gaming experience at a lower cost." These come with a few dings, but go through thorough testing and are backed by the same one-year warranty.
Down by up to 20 percent
Valve's handheld console, the Steam Deck, has been discounted by up to 20 percent during the Steam Summer Sale, with the most expensive model now priced at $519.20.
Perfect for those Steam Decks, Surfaces, and upcoming Asus ROG Ally
Sabrent has launched its newest Rocket Q NVMe Gen 4 SSDs that will come in M.2 2230 form-factor, and in capacities of up to 2TB, making them perfect for upgrading the Steam Deck, Microsoft Surface, upcoming ASUS ROG Ally handheld console, or any other device that is limited to M.2 2230 SSD form-factor.
Gaming gets a little too real
Thanks to a crowdfunding campaign from 2014, soldiers in Ukraine are now using Steam Decks to operate a high-calibre machine gun turret remotely.
Impressive specifications with Zen 4 and RDNA3 APU
Asus managed to surprise everyone as it appears that the ROG Ally is actually a real product, rather than an April Fools' Day prank. While there are still a lot of unknown details, a bunch of information has appeared in the last few days including two hands-on videos, showing the prototype in full detail.
This puts the base version at $359.10
Valve has kicked off its Steam Spring 2023 sale, offering a lot of great games at discount, but the biggest surprise is the 10 percent discount for Steam Deck.
Brings Vulkan ray tracing to DOOM Eternal
Steam Deck now got the official 3.4.6 OS stable update, which brought several fixes and new features.
2,988 Steam games now listed as verified
Valve Steam Deck has been doing quite well, selling out and finally bringing some of those AAA titles to a handheld device, and now its list of games have passed the 8,000 games mark.
The Steam Deck is a refreshing and innovative console launched in mid-July 2021 and started shipping to first pre-order customers in February 2022. With the preorder system in place, one had to wait usually months to get one. What changed in the last few weeks is the fact that Steam offers to ship them within one to two weeks, at least in the old continent.
