Valve has just announced the long-awaited official Steam Deck Docking Station.
The best part is that users will now be able to easily connect a mouse, keyboard, and multiple external displays (up to 4k@60hz or 1440p@120hz) to the Steam Deck, turning it into a laptop/desktop replacement when docked.
Moreover, Valve says
it has confirmed that the dock is compatible with “a wide range of displays and peripherals.” However, there’s a chance that it missed some, given the many displays and accessories on the market.

The dock will come with its power supply, though you don’t need to plug in the docking station to use it, according to Valve.
The dock wasn’t available when the Steam Deck first launched in February as usual like other companies Valve blamed the delay on parts shortages and closures at its manufacturing sites.
