Valve is optimizing Steam OS for AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU.
GPD told this story when it recently launched a Win Max 2 laptop-console that uses the AMD APU. According to the company, Valve approached them with a proposal.
In recent months Ryzen 7 6800U handheld gaming consoles were introduced. For Valve, optimizing Steam OS to this APU will help attract new players.
GPD estimates that Valve could take six months to optimize. However, the company could have begun the work long before this date. It is possible that we will see new consoles on Steam OS by the end of this year, or that the system will be offered in an alternative.
