Steam For Chromebooks Reaches Beta With Initial DX12 Games, AMD C-Series Support
With ChromeOS 108, Steam has reached beta and has expanded the support beyond the initial focus of Intel Chromebooks to now include AMD Ryzen 5000 C-Series APUs. The minimum CPU requirements have also been lowered to Intel Core i3 and AMD Ryzen 3 series CPUs. Google though still recommends Chromebooks with at least 16GB of RAM and Core i5 or Ryzen 5 and better for the best gaming experience.
The Steam Chrome OS beta also has better power management, performance improvements, initial support for Direct3D 12 games, various game-specific tweaks, improved shader cache handling, Intel Alder Lake CPU support, Vulkan 1.3 support, a new installer and splash screen, and various other improvements.
