Latest Steam Deck update adds per-game performance profiles and more

Valve’s latest update to the Steam Deck includes a variety of additions, including per-game performance profiles and keyboard additions. Valve also added some smaller features and performance improvements. All in all, this is another solid update that only benefits Valve’s handheld system.

The company remains proactive when it comes to sending updates to the Steam Deck. Every few weeks, Valve releases a new update to the device that further improves the user experience. Just last month, a previous update brought the OS-driven fan curve to the device as well as some experimental features.

Steam Deck’s new per-game performance profile

The biggest inclusion in this update is the addition of per-game performance profiles. Each game can now be set up to have its own performance settings. You can access this feature by using the Quick Access Menu, clicking Performance, and then clicking Advanced View. If left alone, the game will default to using the global system performance settings.

This is great news for Steam Deck users looking to properly optimize each game for battery life and performance. It cuts down on a lot of commonly used time when switching settings around for each game. This, along with the newly added fan curve and adjustable refresh rate, should make the Steam Deck much better for longer sessions. However, there are still additions that need to be made here, such as the ability to set up multiple profiles per game.

This update also brings keyboard additions. Traditional Bulgarian layouts are now available, tweaks to the interface affecting the ‘AltGr’ symbols and incorrect keys for Russian and Ukrainian keyboards have been removed. These are minor tweaks, but changes are welcome to the changes it affects. Smaller bug fixes are also here to improve the overall experience. When the Steam Deck is connected to an external display, it expands to a resolution of 1280×800. Performance has also been improved when switching from offline to online. Rumble and haptics settings have also been moved from the Quick Access Menu to the Controller Settings page.

There are plenty of other minor tweaks, so be sure to check out the full patch notes for more info. It will be interesting to see what Valve brings to the next Steam Deck. Hopefully, We’ll start to see the experimental features introduced in the previous update exit the beta.
