Teardown – Steam Deck Settings Guide



    I think I’ve found some pretty good settings on the steam deck for about four or so hours of teardown running. These settings aren’t perfect and start to break when there’s a lot going on, but in most situations it works pretty well.

    Steam Deck Settings Guide


    Changed settings in Steam UI.

    • Turn off framerate limiting and set the refresh rate to 40.
    • Turn on half-rate shading.
    • Change the TDP limit to 10 watts.
    • Change the GPU clock frequency to 1100 MHz.

    Changed settings in Options > Graphics tab.

    While maintaining that 4+ hours of gameplay these settings don’t seem too different from the games default on the deck.

    • Set the render scale to 75%.
    • Set the render quality to low (surprisingly doesn’t make the game look terrible).
    • Set Vertical Sync to Adaptive (this is why we set the refresh rate to 40).
