Valve’s New OLED Steam Deck Launches This Month

The £479 updated hardware comes with improved battery, storage and Wi-Fi this November 16th

Games giant Valve will release a new version of its Steam Deck hardware in the very near future. Steam Deck OLED starts at £479.00 and will be available from
November 16th via the Steam Store.

The new iteration of the hardware comes with a larger OLED display that is capable of outputting HDR. It also boasts a longer battery life, improved cooling and more storage capacity in addition to faster Wi-Fi. This new hardware will be launching on November 16th. 

The original Steam Deck is being discontinued, save for the 256GB which is being kept on as an entry-level model.

Valve told Eurogamer that the tech to make what the company would call a proper second iteration of the Steam Deck doesn’t exist yet. Hardware engineer Yazan Aldehayyat said, “Obviously we’d love to get even more performance in the same power envelope, but that technology doesn’t exist yet. That’s what I think we’d call a Steam Deck 2.0.

“The first Steam Deck was the first moment in time where we felt like there was enough GPU performance in a portable form factor that lets you play all your Steam games. We would love for the trend of perf-per-watt to progress rapidly to do that, but it’s not quite there yet.”

The original Steam Deck was released in February 2022.
