In the past, Valve has made available a number of upgrades for Steam Deck in order to enhance the overall experience for the gamer.
The Steam Deck’s pretty obvious weakness has always been that it has a relatively low battery life. The graphics card that uses the RDNA 2 architecture requires more power than the 40Wh battery can provide. The battery life is even less than 2 hours when it is subjected to high loads. This particular experience not very good, and the noise that the cooling system makes when the processor is “full on” may be rather irritating.
In point of fact, Steam Deck offers players an exceptionally high degree of selectivity in terms of performance scheduling. You can control the power consumption of the processor, limit the frequency of the GPU, adjust the game frame rate, change the game resolution, and so on in the advanced view of the performance interface. This allows you to control the power consumption of the entire machine, which increases the battery life. This is a really helpful feature, but if you establish a separate configuration file for a game, it is quite inconvenient to have to set it again the next time you log in. As a result, many internet users refer to this option as “powerful,” despite the fact that it is highly helpful. Fool”.

At long last, on May 11th, Valve made available an upgrade to the Steam Deck operating system. Because of this update to the system, the problem of regulating the performance of the Steam Deck has been solved, and performance profiles may now be customized for individual games.
When you open the advanced view of the performance interface after the update, you will be taken to the global settings. Here, you will be able to adjust performance parameters, and these configurations will be applied to all games. You also have the option to open the individual game settings, which allows you to make independent performance configurations for each game. The priority of the independent performance configuration is higher than that of the global configuration, and the independent performance configurations can be saved. When you open the game the next time, the system will automatically enable the profile you set up earlier in the process.
In addition, this update of Steam Deck primarily addresses a few bugs and adds two new keyboards: a phonetic keyboard and a Bulgarian keyboard. It might interest you to know that Steam Deck already has 100s of premade games before launch.
