Steam Link On Sale For $15 And The Summer Sale Begins

Steam Link

Valve’s Steam Link has gone on sale today and has its lowest retail price ever and the Steam Summer Sale has kicked off today. It’s going for $15 on Steam its self which is $35 less than the original $50 value.  It will be on sale until July 5th.

The device allows players to stream games from their gaming PC to another display as long as the display and the PC are connected on the same network. It’s essentially a bridge between a PC and television. Of course, it needs to be hooked up to a TV through HDMI.

Games can run up to 1080p (1920×1080) with 60 FPS through the Steam Link, but network speed will determine how smooth and sharp your games look. Try running both over ethernet cables as opposed to wireless and make sure to have a modern modem and router. Valve also recommends to use a wired connection for a more consistent gameplay, but it will work wirelessly. If you are using wireless we recommend running on a 5.0 GHZ connection if your router supports it. Performance may vary with weaker connections, but it’s one of the more cost-effective methods of playing PC games in a living room environment.

The Steam Link also has three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI out, a 100 Mb/s Ethernet port, and Bluetooth 4.0 support built into the system. If you don’t want to use a keyboard and mouse it supports both Xbox One and Xbox 360 wireless and wired controllers. But if they are wireless you will need a USB dongle to get a wireless controller working. Steam Controllers have native wireless support.
