Pierre-Loup Griffis, the designer of the upcoming Steam Deck, clarified his previous comments about the “30 FPS target” for games running on the console. In an interview with IGN, Griffith said before: “I think we look pretty good so far. Everything that came out this year is running smoothly and we have tried it. I think this is largely Is a factor in the industry trend. If people still value high frame rates and high resolutions on different platforms, I think the content will be fine-tuned to our 800p 30Hz target.” 30 Hz target (another term for frames per second, In this case, the idea of) made some members of the community anxious about the hardware capabilities, assuming that Valve is pushing the game to run at 30FPS, not more.

He said that a fully charged battery in the console will last about 2-8 hours, and gamers can run at 720p resolution and 60FPS for 4 hours before having to charge the handheld device.
