Valve released drivers to install Windows on Steam Deck’s portable console in March. The sound however was left unaltered: the Steam Deck did not work through either the built-in speakers, or the 3.5mm audio jack. Instead, it had to be output via USB or Bluetooth peripherals. C. The company has now published the audio drivers.
The files that you will need to download are listed on the Steam support page. However, they are not available in Russian.
The decision to install Windows on Steam Deck is at the discretion of the console owners: there is an opinion that Arch Linux-based SteamOS “native” for it demonstrates higher performance, but in some cases the result can be just the opposite. Windows is the best choice for people who require games that aren’t in the Steam library. It will also suit those who use the Epic Game Store, or who subscribe to Xbox Game Pass.
Valve has stated that dual booting SteamOS/Windows has yet to be implemented. “The SteamOS installer responsible is not yet ready”SteamOS 3 is still in development so you will need to wait. Windows 10 and 11 are both supported. However, before installing the latter you will need to update SteamOS. This module can be found in the platform system requirements.
