Steam Deck™ is the most powerful, full-featured gaming handheld in the world.
We partnered with AMD to create Steam Deck’s custom APU, optimized for handheld gaming. It is a Zen 2 + RDNA 2 powerhouse, delivering more than enough performance to run the latest AAA games in a very efficient power envelope.
Real gamepad controls
The Steam Deck was built for extended play sessions—whether you’re using thumbsticks or trackpads—with full-size controls positioned perfectly within your reach. The rear of the device is sculpted to comfortably fit a wide range of hand sizes.
Best-in-class thumbsticks—with capacitive touch sensors built-in—provide a level of precision and comfort not found in other portable gaming devices.
Four user-assignable buttons on the back of the Deck put the next level of control right at your fingertips while keeping your thumb firmly planted on the trackpad or stick.
Type and swipe through the Steam UI with Deck’s capacitive multi-touch display.
Play PC games that were never designed to be handheld. With increased precision and customizability, trackpads also give you a competitive edge when playing fast paced FPS games.
With an IMU and capacitive touch thumbsticks on-board, Deck helps you aim better. By physically positioning the device you can achieve more precision than using a thumbstick or trackpad alone.
Everything you need Fast storage
Get the built-in storage you need: 64GB eMMC, 256GB NVMe SSD (faster), or 512GB NVMe SSD (fastest). If you’re looking for more space, augment your built-in storage with a microSD card and fill it up with even more games.
Steam Deck’s stereo speakers pack a punch. An embedded DSP provides clarity and a wide soundstage for an immersive listening experience. Connect your favorite headset, or use the onboard dual microphones to chat with your friends.
Steam Deck’s onboard 40 watt-hour battery provides several hours of play time for most games. For lighter use cases like game streaming, smaller 2D games, or web browsing, you can expect to get the maximum battery life of approximately 7-8 hours.
The single USB-C jack is multi-purpose: used for charging, peripherals, or even throwing the game onto a big screen at the same time. Any USB-C hub can be used to expand your options, or get our Steam Deck™ Docking Station when it is released. More info on the dock below.
WiFi keeps you connected to the world, and Bluetooth allows for a wide variety of wireless peripherals – from controllers to headsets, keyboards, and mice.

Plays nice with all your accessories
Steam Deck is Bluetooth-ready, and its USB-C port can handle all sorts of I/O. Want to have a fighting tournament on the go? Covered. Want to play with Bluetooth mouse and keyboard? Covered. Want to pair your favorite Bluetooth headphones? You’re good to go.
Deck can be plugged in to your TV
Deck can be plugged in to your TV, monitor, or even your old CRT if you have the right cables. When docked, the Steam Deck’s USB-C port can carry video, audio, input, etc. Just plug in your peripherals, or use the docking station, and you’re ready to go.
There’s a dock, too.
The Steam Deck™ Docking Station props up your Steam Deck while connecting to external displays, wired networking, USB peripherals, and power. You can also use a powered USB-C hub, if you’ve got one lying around.
The official dock will be sold separately. Add it to your Steam wishlist to get notified when it’s available to order. Coming late Spring 2022.
Designed for the long game
Our design story began with a known inventory of controls, to accommodate long play sessions through the breadth of games available on Steam. The rest was up for exploration. The result: a purposeful and balanced design tailored for your hands.
Steam Deck Reservation FAQ
Why is there a reservation fee?
The main reason for reservations is to ensure an orderly and fair ordering process for customers when Steam Deck inventory becomes available. The additional fee gives us a clearer signal of intent to purchase, which gives us better data to balance supply chain, inventory, and regional distribution leading up to launch.
When you submit a reservation, you will be put in a queue. Once inventory is available, you will be emailed in the order the reservations were made.
We will start sending order invitations in batches every week starting February 25th, 2022. Customers will have 72 hours to complete their purchase – if they do not complete their purchase or cancel their reservation, their reservation slot will pass to the next person in the queue.
Yes, you can cancel your reservation on this page. If you cancel within 30 days, you will be refunded to whatever payment method you used. If you cancel after 30 days, your reservation fee will be refunded to your Steam Wallet.
Customers in the United States, Canada, European Union, and the United Kingdom can reserve a Steam Deck. Information about expanded regional availability coming soon.
One Steam account can have one active Steam Deck reservation at a time.
Your reservation fee will be refunded in full. If your refund occurs within 30 days of your initial reservation, you will be refunded to whatever payment method you used. If your refund occurs after 30 days of your initial reservation, you will be refunded to your Steam Wallet.
Your Steam account must be in a valid country.
The default Steam Deck experience requires a Steam account (it’s free!). Games are purchased and downloaded using the Steam Store. That said, Steam Deck is a PC so you can install third party software and operating systems.
You may add Steam Deck to your wishlist and we will notify you when it is available for general purchase.
Yes, the reservation queue and expected order availability times are specific to each region.
Once you’re able to order, you can only purchase the Steam Deck model that you reserved.
Once your reserved Steam Deck is available and you complete your purchase, you will be charged.
