Unlike the Nintendo Switch, Valve’s Steam Deck won’t get boosted performance when docked

We may have been so concerned about the Stream Deck’s ability to play games at higher framerates that we didn’t stop to consider how docking the device would affect its performance. 

Despite the Nintendo Switch (arguably the best-established comparison product to Valve’s new handheld) boosting games to 1080p when the console is docked (up from its native 720p), Valve didn’t see the need to include a similar feature for its own portable gaming device. This may mean that you’ll see better performance on the Steam Deck when using it solely as a handheld, especially if you only have a large 4K TV, which is fairly common in modern homes.

Don’t Steam ahead with your expectations
