A new entry has appeared in the Geekbench 5 synthetic benchmark database for testing the Steam Deck portable game console, where it appears under the codename Valve Jupiter.
It should be noted right away that this is not the first appearance of the console in the database of this benchmark. For the first time there was information about them did back in September last year. However, the most recent entry reports performance testing of the set-top box in a Windows environment. As a reminder, the console ships with Linux-based SteamOS 3.0 by default.
Geekbench 5 benchmarks focus on the performance of AMD’s quad-core, eight-threaded 2.4-3.5GHz Aerith APU on the Zen 2, which underpins the console. It also confirms that the set-top box comes with 16GB of RAM.
The console scored 830 points in a single-threaded test and 3666 points in a multi-threaded test. This puts AMD Aerith on par with the desktop APUs Ryzen 3 3200G and Ryzen 5 3400G based on the Zen+ architecture, which showed comparable results in the same tests.
The Steam Deck console processor stands out from its background with more powerful integrated graphics based on eight processing units of the RDNA 2 architecture, operating at a frequency of 1-1.6 GHz.
Remember that Steam Deck goes on sale on February 25th. It starts at $400 for the 64GB eMMC Persistent Storage model.
