Valve Steam Deck, Intel Alder Lake rumours, and DirectStorage on Windows 10 on The Full Nerd ep. 184

Valve Steam Deck, Intel Alder Lake rumours, and DirectStorage on Windows 10 on The Full Nerd ep. 184

First, we kick things off with a recent round of “Alder Lake” rumors about Intel’s radical upcoming 12-gen Core chips, which will be built using a combination of big cores and little cores working together to optimize performance when you need it and power when you don’t.

In this episode of The Full Nerd, Gordon Ung, Brad Chacos, and Adam Patrick Murray are back in the saddle, broadcasting live from our studio for the first time in a long time. And we had a heaping helping of delectably geeky topics for our big return.

After that, we dive deep into Valve’s just-announced Steam Deck handheld, which is like a Nintendo Switch built by (and for) PC nerds. Beyond the specs and performance speculation, we also wade into who the Steam Deck is for, whether it would work with an eGPU, why it has a much better chance of success than Steam Machines ever did, and how Valve’s decade-long investments in Linux gaming and bespoke hardware are finally paying off.

Finally, yes, there will be a cloud version of Windows soon. But only business types should care about it. PC enthusiasts should care more about Microsoft bringing its next-gen DirectStorage tech to Windows 10 rather than locking it down to Windows 11. Props, Redmond. We recap what DirectStorage does and why the Windows 10 support really matters right now.
