Steam Deck OLED Announced

    An all-new Deck.

    Valve has announced the Steam Deck OLED, a new model of the Steam Deck. This model brings on an all-new HDR OLED panel, bringing rich and vibrant colors to the portable system. 

    A limited edition 1TB model of this OLED unit will be available starting November 16. It will run at $649 and includes a special carrying case.

    New Steam Deck OLED Features

    Valve has revealed the new features of this revised console. Performance is still the same, however, you can expect some big improvements in battery life and cooling. Check out the details below:

    Brighter colors, blacker blacks
    Steam Deck’s HDR OLED display is designed from the ground up for gaming, with striking contrast, brilliant clarity, and a larger picture. With more colors, pure blacks, and amazing motion rendition, you’ll see your games in a new light.

    More time to play
    Steam Deck OLED has 30-50% more battery life. We fit a bigger battery into the case, and the OLED display draws less power. Add in an updated, more efficient AMD APU and you have way more time to play your favorites.

    Faster downloads
    Steam Deck OLED comes with Wifi 6E, offering increased bandwidth and lower latency. This means faster downloads (up to 3 times faster!) and stable online play.

    Lighter, cooler
    Thanks to a bigger fan and updated thermals, Steam Deck OLED runs cooler. It weighs 30g, or ~5% lighter than the LCD model, due to the screen.

    Steam Deck LCD Now Discounted

    With the release of the Deck OLED, Valve has begun the process of phasing out the 64GB and 512GB LCD models. These are now discounted for a limited time only, until inventory is cleared. The 64GB model starts at $349, with the 512GB model at $449. Additionally, the new entry model for the Steam Deck will be the 256GB LCD model. This will start at $399.

    The OLED models will be available starting November 16, 2023.
