Valve has quietly updated the specifications of the yet-to-be-released official dock for Steam Deck gaming laptops. as I said befor geek review. The Steam Deck specs page originally stated that the dock would have one USB-A 3.1 port, two USB-A 2.0 ports, and an Ethernet port for networking, but the page says so now. all three The USB-A ports will use the much faster 3.1 standard and they now state that the Ethernet port will actually be a Gigabit Ethernet port.
According to the Wayback Machine, Valve’s Steam Deck tech specs page listed the original specs February 12, the diagram accompanying the docking showed the network’s Ethernet connector. But Until February 22Specifications have been updated to include three USB-A 3.1 ports. And Until February 25 The first day, the valve started Steam surface sale – Updated docking diagram to show three USB-A 3.1 . ports And Gigabit Ethernet socket.
(The February 25 archive from The Wayback Machine is also the first time I’ve seen Valve use the title “Docking Station” instead of “Official Dock.”)
The upgrades look good for the curb and I’m looking forward to getting one myself. I envision a future where I can use the dock to play Steam games on the TV in the living room. Unfortunately, I don’t know exactly when I’ll be able to do this, because Valve has only given a vague Dock release date in late spring 2022, and the company hasn’t shared how much it might cost. Valve did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
If you don’t want to wait for the official Valve docking station, the company says you can use other USB-C hubs instead, as my colleague Sean Hollister did. in his review. but i waited long enough For the surface itself, what are the other two months for the patch?
