The specs seem pretty good for running current games and previous generation games. but there will eventually be newer games that will push it a bit. Even newer current generation games might.
I wonder publishers end up considering its support like they do for consoles, or if Valve revs the specs in a shorter window than consoles.
But maybe Valve doesn’t even need to worry about the specs for future games. Game streaming could be the future of this form-factor. Xbox Cloud seems like a possibility on the Steam Deck since you can install Windows, and you will probably be able to stream games to it from you local PC like you can from other Steam clients.
Maybe Valve will even launch an Xbox Cloud competitor which could prolong the hardware’s life.
