Valve reassures gamers about microSD performance of entry-level Steam Deck

Some gamers thinking of going for the entry-level Steam Deck may have been left concerned about the performance of games running on the Steam Deck off a microSD slot.

However, as highlighted in a post by WiredupReport, Valve’s Lawrence Yang has moved to dispel and fears.

Yang was asked whether games running from a microSD slot will run slower than games installed on the internal storage.

And while Yang said games installed on the Steam Deck’s own storage will be quicker, games still run “great” when housed on a microSD slot.

Underlining this point, Yang revealed that IGN – who have gone hands-on with the Steam Deck – were playing games running off a microSD.
