"The first thing they mentioned was that they’re “not convinced that even with all the improvements to SteamOS 3.0 between August and October that it would have been ready by December. Yes, there’s a semiconductor shortage but I’m thinking it’s not the real reason for the delay.”

Have you tried any demanding games?

Yes – battery life is between 2-5 hours depending on APU load.

How fast are load times from the microSD card?

Indistinguishable from loading off the SSD; I’ve not timed anything.

Can you resume a game at any point in time? Or do you have to exit and restart?

Mid-game resuming is being worked on.

and the rumor that Anti-Cheat is not Easy to turn on on SteamOS might be something that might turn people off.

A lot of us were expecting SteamOS 3.0 to be available by now so it's definitely the main reason for the delay. They even ended up saying it won't be available until after the Deck launches so that means it's far from ready.

maybe but to be fair, Valve would be Foolish to release SteamOS 3.0 before the Deck. As the Major selling point is 3.0 with the deck.
Look at it like this It would look horrible if AYA NEO hit the market running 3.0 (even if unofficially) before Valve owns deck.
