Valve's producing Steam Decks faster than expected, so expect new orders to ship sooner
If you have been waiting for your Steam Deck reservation, we have good news for you. Valve's Lawrence Yang has confirmed that they are now producing Steam Deck systems at a faster than expected rate, and as a result some Q4 customers should now receive their units on Q3 2022.
Since their Steam Deck system launched earlier this year, Valve has been working hard to increase the system's production rate. Now, Valve has dramatically increased the speed at which they can produce their Steam Deck handheld gaming system, and that has already allowed the company to move forward the expected delivery dates of many Steam Deck pre-orders. Soon, Valve plans to make another official announcement regarding their Steam Deck production rates, but for now we can rest assured that things are progressing at a faster than expected rate.
Below is what Valve's Lawrence Yang had to say about the company's boosted Steam Deck production rate.
Valve's Steam Deck has quickly become one of the most popular gaming handhelds on the market, offering consumers affordable pricing, broad compatibility with PC games, and a lot more raw CPU/GPU horsepower than Nintendo's Switch gaming system.
With Valve's Steam Deck being a portable gaming PC, the system has also proven to be popular for game emulation, offering users the CPU and graphics horsepower to play classic games from older consoles. Some gamers have even emulated Xbox 360 games using the system, as can be seen here.
