Valve's official Steam Deck dock has now arrived
Starting today, Valve's official Steam Deck docking solution is now available to purchase, users of the company's gaming handheld to quickly and easily connect their handheld PCs to monitors and televisions.
Using Valve's official Steam Deck dock, external displays that are up to 4K 60Hz or 1440p 120Hz can be connected, with multi-monitor setups being ossible though the dock's HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 connectors. AMD FreeSync is also supported though these outputs.
With an asking price of £79 ($89 in the US), Valve is asking for a lot of money for their official Steam Deck docking solution. That said, cheaper competing solutions often ship without a power supply, and most competing solutions only feature a single HDMI display output (with some only offering HDMI 1.4).
Valve's Steam Deck dock is not the only docking solution that will work with Valve's gaming handheld, with multiple manufacturers offering Steam Deck compatible solutions. Valve has not warned their users against buying competing Steam Deck docks, as they have designed their system to work well with all kinds of USB hubs.
- 3x USB 3.1 Type-A Gen1 Ports
- Gigabit Ethernet
- DisplayPort 1.4
- HDMI 2.0
- FreeSync Support
- Included USB-C Power Supply with 1.5m cable
Steam Deck users can now buy a Steam Deck dock from Valve on Steam.
