Steam Deck will now ship faster

Valve’s production team today announced that they have resolved all underlying issues with supply chain for Steam Deck.

Preorders that were listed for Q4 or later have now been bumped to Q3 (July-September window). Furthermore, Valve is confident that everyone else in the queue will get their console this year already. For now all new orders will still apply to the Q4 shipping bucket, but once the list is full, new orders will apply to Q1’23 shipping.

Steam Deck production update (it’s good news)
Hello! We’re excited to announce that we’re going to be able to fulfill demand sooner than we had estimated for everyone in the reservation queue. Many of the supply chain shortfalls that affect Steam Deck are gradually clearing up, and we’re continuing to ramp production, so we’re able to produce more Decks faster than ever before.

As of today we’ve updated the reservation windows, and everyone who’s currently in the reservation queue will get their Steam Deck email this year. Many customers who were in the “Q4 or later” window have been bumped up to “Q3 (July-September)” window. And everyone else is now solidly in the “Q4 (October-December)” window.

As of this moment, new reservations will be in the Q4 bucket, but if these queues fill up it will flip over into the following quarter. To see your reservation window, visit this site while logged in.

The Steam Deck console based on AMD Van Gogh APU is one of the most affordable handheld gaming devices on the market. The console may however soon be outclassed by Ryzen 6000-based consoles (AyaNeo2, GPD Win Max 2 etc.), but those devices are unlikely to cost anywhere close to Deck.

That said, this news should be welcomed by everyone who was looking for an affordable handheld console featuring the latest GPU architecture (AMD RDNA2).
