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. The company now has the audio drivers for the device.
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 will be a good choice for people who require games that aren’t in the Steam library. It is also a good choice for those who want to 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 will be released in the coming weeks. 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.
