Steam Deck modifies Windows 10, but full functionality will have to wait

Recently, the long-awaited handheld Steam Deck was launched, and some lucky ones were personally delivered to their homes by Valve founder Gabe Newell.

The $399 Steam Deck operates on Steam OS, with powerful specifications to play AAA games. Valve also positions Steam Deck as a highly open handheld PC that can install any software and even play Xbox Game Pass games from the cloud. A few days ago, Valve announced in the Steam Community Announcement that the Windows driver for Steam Deck has been released, and the Windows driver download link is attached.

The announcement also mentioned several important matters, including that Steam Deck cannot be installed with dual systems, players can only choose between Windows and Steam OS, and the full dual system setting will be launched in the near future.

At present, the host can only install Windows 10. Windows 11 needs to support fTPM BIOS. It is still in production and will be released in the future. The download resources include GPU, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth drivers, but the audio driver is still being developed with AMD and other partners. It will also be released in the future, and users will have to temporarily use Bluetooth or Type C audio.
