Steam Deck vs Next-Gen Gaming: Ray Tracing/Flight Simulator/Unreal Engine 5 + More Tested!

Published on

We've tested Steam Deck against PlayStation 4 - and we came away impressed. However, the RDNA 2 GPU within the Deck contains features that last-gen consoles do not. So to what extent is Steam Deck next-gen ready? How does it compare against Xbox Series X in titles like Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition and the super-taxing Microsoft Flight Simulator? What about Unreal Engine 5's staggering Lumen and Nanite technologies? It's all in here - along with Windows 11 vs Steam OS benchmarks.
