Valve has quietly degraded some Steam Deck although it claims

Valve recently announced that it plans to double Steam Deck shipments in the coming months. However, it seems that this may not be to the liking of users. Reportedly, some new 256GB and 512GB storage Steam Deck models will now ship with PCI Express 3.0 x2 SSD instead of PCI Express 3.0 x4. This halves the read and write speed.

Valve responded to this information and stated that during testing they did not notice any effect on gaming performance. It’s hard to say if this is true yet, but it can be assumed that slower drives will increase the loading time of level games.

It’s funny that this happened in parallel with the company’s statement about why you should not put long SSDs in the console. After all, for this it is necessary to remove the thermal pads, which can lead to overheating of the power system.

To find out which SSD is installed in the console, you need to go to the list of drives and the SSD model will be visible on the right panel. If E13T is not listed in its name, it is most likely a slower version.

Not only Valve creates portable consoles. The Chinese brand Ayaneo is preparing a Next II solution with discrete graphics and powerful processors.

The worlds first portable game console with a discrete graphics

Thanks to the Ryzen 6000U processors, a lot of portable game consoles with excellent performance will appear on the market in the near future. But the new Ayaneo company shows that you can do without the new AMD processors.

The world's first portable game console with a discrete graphics card.  Ayaneo Next II will be available on AMD and Intel platforms

The console called Next II will be released at the end of the year and will offer the most unexpected configuration. The fact is that this will be the first portable set-top box with a discrete graphics card!

The novelty will be available either with a combination of a Ryzen 6000 processor and a Radeon RX 6000 3D card, or with a pair of an Intel Alder Lake CPU and a DG2 GPU, that is, the Arc family.

Unfortunately, there are no details, but we can assume that we are talking about the Radeon RX 6300M ​​and Arc A350M or A370M. And it’s still not very clear whether it makes sense to use such components in a portable set-top box, especially considering that there is a Ryzen 6800U.

There are no other technical details about the console yet, but it is known that it will be very large, and the price will be very high.
