Inside the Steam Deck’s APU

Source: Hacker News

Article note: Huh. The claim is that Magic Leap's overspend included a custom APU from AMD, and the first gen Steam Deck is built on basically that part with the special DSPs fused off, bought cheap either because there were a ton of extras or since the design was already spun ordering more with a post-processed tweak was way less than a custom part. It's fairly credible, dumber things have happened in the silicon industry, the Switch and Raspberry Pi are basically built on repurposed existing SoCs.
