The other day Google announced that Steam Alpha for Chrome OS will be made available for specific devices. Here is my article about it: Link.
Now there are first success stories on YouTube and the web that it’s already running pretty well. 🙂
They show that Portal 2 runs at 60 FPS via it on a Chromebook.
And the guys from Chrome Unboxed are also thrilled:
For example, Half Life 2 is shown in the video, which already runs pretty well on an ASUS Chromebook CX9.
Games should run best on Chromebooks with a Full-HD display. 2K or 4K is still a problem due to the limited graphics performance.
I currently own a Google Pixelbook Go and a Lenovo Chromebook Duet Tablet 10, both of which are unfortunately not supported. 😭
Oh, how I would love to test this myself. 😉
Of course, this is still an alpha version, and there are still some quirks. Furthermore, it would be great if Chromebooks finally came on the market that not only have a graphics card integrated with the processor but a dedicated one. Then you could also test newer games with it. Still, this does look promising. 🙂
For example, do you own a current Acer Chromebook 713 and test Steam? What are your experiences?
