Valve says Steam Deck’s SSD change impacts performance only in ‘extremely uncommon cases’

Steam Deck designer Lawrence Yang has explained the rationale behind a recent change to the handheld gaming PC’s storage options, saying that the team at Valve has “determined that there is no impact to performance between the two models” of SSD now being used.

HardwareLuxx (opens in new tab) brought to light that the Steam Deck’s 256GB and 512GB versions can now ship with either a two-lane or four-lane PCIe SSD (opens in new tab), a spec change made at the end of May. We reached out to Yang to ask what the difference will mean for the end user. According to Valve’s design team, there is no difference between the two drives except in “extremely uncommon cases.”
