What is a Steam Deck

The Steam Deck is a handheld gaming console developed by Valve, which also owns the Steam gaming platform on PC. Steam previously dabbled with hardware such as the Steam Link streaming device and even a short-lived partnership with Alienware.

The Steam Deck dock is actually the reason behind Valve’s video faux pas. Steam previously announced plans to release a dock at a later date, and it is finally available. The purpose of the dock is to connect your Steam Deck to the TV for big-screen gameplay.
