When the valve and IGN Revealed last Thursday The new portable steam deck will target the 30Hz gameNot everyone was impressed by that low bar – but Valve Pierre-Loop Griffiths took to Twitter to express his true opinion and reveal the new feature of the handheld console.
First, he says that 30 fps is a bar lower than anything else:
“The goal of 30 FPS indicates that we believe we can play at our landmarks; We’ve met games that have been tried and shown, and so far this bar has been surpassed, “he writes.
In other words, Griffiths IGN said in this video interview “We can not throw anything that this device can not handle”, do not think that all modern games run at 60 fps. Expect less.
Oddly, 30 fps mode is something you can pre-activate to get more battery life. “There will also be an optional built-in FPS limiter to adjust performance according to battery life,” he writes. The company once said you can play Gate 2 Up to six hours at 30 fps compared to the usual four hours.
It will be a Good But in 30 fps mode? It must be determined. In the answers, Digital Foundry Richard Leadbetter says Valve has confirmed that the steam deck does not have a variable refresh rate (VRR) display. Avoid the idea This V-sync will cause dirty frame rate problems if you try to lock 30Hz games on the deck screen. (Digital Foundry Will know; That’s it The problem is covered Several times on PC and console. Dark spirits And Chopped From the software developer Notorious for inconsistent frame rates, E.g.)
The 30 fps setting is good for demanding games, but when V sync is active, make sure a new image is synced with any other screen update (usually on consoles) to ensure consistency. 30 fps limit, but equally distributed at 16.7ms / 33.3ms / 50ms is not a great experience
