Steam Deck developer Pierre-Loup Griffais has unveiled a complete selection of Valves original working prototypes for the brand new handheld.

Within the Steam Decks launch event in Asia, Valve has come up with a display of the Steam Decks original prototypes, and Griffais has unveiled the never-before-seen line-up on Twitter.

Within the Asia launch press event, we made the look lab right into a showroom of development history, he said. The best will be the playable prototypes: bootable Deck family tree from mid-2019 to now, from the handful of hand-built units onto gradual mass production.

Valves Steam Deck premiered on February 25, 2022, but was in development for a long time. The aforementioned display depicts different iterations of the Steam Deck throughout its development from mid-2019 showcasing the various designs the business experienced before finalizing the Steam Deck.

As the basic elements have remained exactly the same, the Deck has seen different experiments with colorways (including colored face buttons), D-Pads, sizes, button shapes, and much more. It looks as if there was a minumum of one version that has been a good bit slimmer, too.

The very best part is they (mostly) all still boot, serving being an exciting reminder of what lengths things attended since, said Griffais, uploading a video of a Steam Deck prototype running (below). That one includes a Picasso APU, at about 50 % of the GPU power of the ultimate Deck. The flatter ergo was a fascinating experiment and taught us quite a bit about comfort.

IGNs Steam Deck review gave it 7/10 and said: Once the Steam Deck is living around its promises, it’s absolutely incredible. Playing GTA 5, God of War, along with other modern games on the run can be an absolute joy, and the hardware and controls feel great to hold despite the fact that its a large chubby boy of a handheld.

Taking into consideration the final Steam Deck is well known big chubby boy it certainly makes you wonder how it could have played if the machine was a little slimmer. Im not sure wed desire to give up the excess GPU power.
