As it is known, Valve’s game arm, Steam Deck, offers both the opportunity to play games by using its internal hardware and the ability to play games that are open on the computer over a wireless network. In the second scenario we mentioned, the computer hardware is responsible for the processing of the graphics of the game and the in-game calculations. Steam Deck only sees one screen mission.
Where the Steam Deck does not use the power of its own graphics card and processor to play a game, that is, when the game is streamed over the network 8 hour battery life has been announced.
Game needs to run on PC for long term experience
According to the report of PC Gamer, Greg Coomer, who served as a product designer at Valve, said, ” A high-performance game like Death Stranding is not on the device itself. If played with streaming procedure from PC can be played for 8 hours” he said.
Valve also announced that the Steam Deck will offer a playing time of two to eight hours. The aforementioned two-hour playtime is likely due to high-performance games being played on the device itself. In an example that the company gave earlier, Portal 2 game For 5 to 6 hours at 30fps stated that it can be played.
