Google is now testing Steam on ChromeOS with selective processor-based laptops. The selective processors are Intel i3 and Ryzen 3.
At the beginning of this year, Google announced that they are working with Steam to bring in Steam on ChromeOS, with some high-end Chromebooks. The specifications to support are the 11th Intel i5 and i7 with 8GB of RAM. Later the list included Chromebooks with 12th Gen Core processors and Ryzen processors.
Thanks to a new code change discovered by 9to5Google, it is clear that you can now install Steam Beta on selective 11th Intel i3 and above-based Chromebooks, and Ryzen-based Chromebooks. Meanwhile, the support for the 10th-generation Intel processors remains in doubt.
To test the new Steam, you need to have at least 8GB of RAM, which is now a common specification around the platforms, along with ChromeOS on the Dev channel. Yes, Dev channels are on the bleeding edge, and will definitely consist of some device-breaking bugs, but this is what it is.
This move, in the future, might make Linux a competitive player in the gaming market clashing with Windows, which has a way too huge market share, in terms of gaming alone.
