The Steam Deck is a handheld gaming computer developed by Valve. It was released on February 25, 2022, and has function similar to the Nintendo Switch in that it can be played handheld or by hooking it up to a monitor. It is an x86-64-v3 system with integrated gaming inputs that can play every game in the Steam catalogue, including Windows PC games thanks to the Linux-based Proton compatibility layer. Users can install other compatible games or other operating systems on the handheld, as it is an open platform.
Steam Deck runs a modified Arch Linux operating system called SteamOS v3.3. SteamOS had previously been developed for Steam Machines using Debian Linux. Game developers have access to a Steam Deck-specific application programming interface (API), which enables a game to specify settings when running on a Steam Deck as opposed to a standard computer.
