    I've been a steam hater since steam existed. But I'm so amazed, what Valve did for Linux. I installed Steam 2 Weeks ago on some throwaway Email to test the FSR3 Forspoken Demo and ... thats it. I'm registering a proper account and will buy this thing. Please let the Oled display have VRR. *edit* Ok, just seen the LTT review and he says no VRR. He even asked Valve, they said because they use MIPI instead of eDP they can't support it... ;_(

    Then I will register my decade old Humblebundle steam keys...

      Although there isn't much public data, I think zen4 is preferred core for core. However, a hybrid approach might be nice. If they could do 2 Zen 4 plus 4 Zen4c, that seems like it could be a better bet than just 4 Zen4.

          It's a N6 shrink of the mostly the same SoC + RAM speed increased to 6400MT. Quite good as for mid-cycle refresh.

            if Qualcomm is able to push Windows on ARM in 2 years, then maybe arm chip for long battery life

              Will they now care about Kwin having good HDR support or they will still care only about Gamescope?
              It would be nice if they would give grants to both KDE and Mozilla to bring and polish HDR support on their sides!
              Maybe they can do it as Christmas gifts.

                I think their approach is to spend developer time to implement features themselves rather than donations. That's how they've been operating at least.

                  Their core business is games, and steam. KDE and desktop mode it's an addon. I don't think it's in their roadmap, they have their things to do. BUT what valve does inspires other DE devs to watch and learn and act. So soon we might be there universally not just on KDE. Chrome OS also switched to wayland may be that will improve situation as well.

                    An OLED is bound to use less power, particularly for darker games. Unlike an LCD, OLED power consumption correlates to how bright the image is.

                      I want a reason to buy this, but I only play a few games a decade.
