Non, seule une image signée par Valve peut être lancée. Elle a un accès SSH comme indiqué sur la page du SDK cependant. Notez qu'elle n'est plus fabriquée depuis décembre, donc elle n'est plus vraiment disponible.

Somewhat unworthy Teardown. Naming the CPU brand wrong and not giving any relevant information like schematics or ICs used. THIS is by far better: https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/news/te...

EDIT: Oh, it is a community post, sry. But more information would be nice. E.g. where is the massive heat sink? There are lots of parts missing.

Hello, this is my first (and only) teardown. I made it just for fun, really. I opened my Steam Link once and then decided to put it on the internet, because I found they weren’t that much photos of it around.

The heat sink is a large piece of aluminum, and now I realize I forgot to add it, my mistake.
