Steam Deck 2 may be in development

According to the latest rumors coming from the industry world, Valve will have already started to develop its Steam Deck 2 console, especially with regard to hardware. Details indicate that AMD is then working on a new SoC to power this second edition of the video game console.

According to the data, this future SoC from Lisa Su’s company will be codenamed AMD Little Phoenix and will have 4 cores and 8 processing threads. However, it will be developed in the new 4nm manufacturing process and will also feature a new microarchitecture called AMD Zen4.

Therefore, the new set then promises to offer the player a performance improvement of up to 35%, which should please most consumers.

As far as graphics are concerned, the information indicates that the new console will have 1024 Stream processors, that is, twice as many as the current Steam Deck brings. In addition, the chip will also be upgraded to the 4nm RDNA3 architecture, which promises a 50% performance improvement per watt consumed over RDNA2.

But there is more news, as the Steam Deck 2 will have an LPDDR5 memory module at a frequency of 6400 MHz, thus increasing the bandwidth by up to 16%. Valve’s current console has an LPDDR5 memory at 5500 MHz.

Finally, the details already revealed indicate that the game company will then be able to deliver its new console during the first quarter of 2023.
