the Steam Deck sells very well but users have been complaining for several weeks (see more) about absent/missing features. The new update responds to some requests.
To put it simply, the Last update of Steam Deck adds a feature that allows gamers to easily adjust performance settings based on the game they are playing. Something in high demand and we can understand why.
The novelty that improves performance options
Players can now configure game-specific performance settings directly through the quick access menu. Concretely, this means that instead of going through and modifying the performance parameters of the Steam Deck whenever you want to tweak them, you can instead set up custom performance profiles for each game you play.
According to the patch note, every game started on the console will use the default system performance settings, and so it’s up to players whether they want to create custom profiles.
THE novelty that everyone is waiting for on the Steam Deck
Among the other novelties and fundamental for performance, we find the possibility of connecting the Steam Deck to an external display. The interface will be scaled and the resolution will change to 1280 x 800 pixels. In short, you will have the impression of having a Switch but with PC games. Too bad the definition can not go up in Full HD.
Note however this detail which is important “More work on this feature is in progress”. Finally, the rest of the update brings a number of fixes and minor improvements the full list can be found here.
