    How's the performance? I was thinking that it might not get put on because high graphics wouldn't be achievable.

    nobody in the world can possibly say, unless they have a steam deck. I'm q2 :<

    you won't be able to run high graphics at a good framerate, sure, but I'm expecting it to be able to hit 60fps on low/medium with a car or three.

    there's no getting "put on" the deck - you can try to run anything you want. it's just a PC! of course not everything is going to work with proton immediately, which is why they have the "great on deck" and "playable" labels for games. great on deck means that effort has been gone to to provide sane default graphics settings and a default controller layout for the deck. playable can be achieved with zero effort, the game just has to run and may require you to change settings yourself to run well or use a sub optimal control interface.

    I can completely believe this. It has 16gb of ram, a decently powerful cpu, and it only runs at 1200x800

    I'm interested in the steamdeck, can confirm it runs decently on my 4700U apu at 720p, even 1080p on Low is achievable on 30fps. On low settings 720p 30fps i was running 6 cars on my laptop, (with power limit set to 25w).

    It'll be interesting to see the power balance in the steamdeck, i'm very interested in the console. Eg turning up graphical settings means less power for the CPU and could cause CPU stuttering..

    The GPU is stronger (up to twice as fast..!) but CPU i don't think it can run many cars with only 4 cores, however with only 15w to play with, you wouldn't want to anyway.

    Bro if an xbox can run Microsoft Flight Simulator it can run BeamNG

    Also the OLED Switch has the minimum requirements for BeamNG

    Doesn’t matter because they run unsupported operating systems

    exactly. Even to modify it would probably make it run 10x times worse than if those consoles ran windows natively from the factory.
