In an interview with PCGamer, Valve Steam Deck designer, Greg Coomer revealed that the company is working with AMD to ensure that the Steam Deck will play nicely with Windows 11 in the future. “There’s work looking at TPM just now. We’ve focused so much on Windows 10, so far, that we haven’t really gotten that far into it. Our expectation is that we can meet that.”
Why is this important? For those unfamiliar, Valve is envisioning the Steam Deck as being more than just a device for gaming. It will be an open platform that will give users options as to what they want to do with it, including Windows. Valve had previously stated that the device can dual boot SteamOS and Windows 10, but with Windows 11 around the corner, it’s good to see that Valve is working on supporting that as well.
The Steam Deck will be officially launching this December where it will be priced at $399. So far initial impressions seem to be quite good, but we’ll have to wait for the actual launch to get a better idea of how it will play.
