Steam Deck gets a performance fix available in Preview

By - | Views: 28,189

After the recent SteamOS 3.3 release, it came with some unfortunate performance issues for the Steam Deck that Valve continues to address. The first was a random bit of micro-stutter that I highlighted and Valve fixed, but it seems there were other problems.

Now you can opt into the Preview update channel on your Steam Deck to get these fixes in a new update:

  • Temporarily reverted Red Dead Redemption 2 VRAM workaround to pre-3.3 behavior
  • Fixed an issue causing random 0.2s stutter
  • Fixed an issue causing performance drops when a UI element appeared on screen if the performance HUD was enabled.

How to do it?

Just hit the Steam button and go into Settings. Then System and find the Steam Update Channel and select Preview there. Then scroll up and check for updates and let it download. Your Steam Deck will reboot after it's finished.
