3rd parties are launching Steam Deck docks before Valve can
When Valve first revealed their Steam Deck gaming handheld, a lot of gamers were interested in its docked and handheld gaming functionality. In essence, PC gamers can used Valve's Handheld system like a Nintendo Switch, using a single device for both on-the-go and on-TV gaming. Sadly, Valve has delayed their official Steam Deck dock, forcing consumers to look at 3rd party solutions.
iVoler is one of the newest companies to create a Steam Deck Docking solution, allowing Steam Deck users to output resolutions of up to 4K at 30Hz over HDMI 1.4 to connected screens and up to three USB 3.0 devices. The Dock is also relatively affordable, costing $35.99 in the US. While we would have preferred to have seen this dock include HDMI 2.0 for 4K 60Hz support, it is hard to see many games being pushed as high as 4K 60 Hz on Valve's portable gaming system.
Below is iVoler's Press Release for their Steam Deck dock and other accessories.
