Valve warns of high-temperature Steam Deck gaming amid sweltering temperatures

Valve has issued a warning about playing the Steam Deck at high temperatures amid heat waves in Europe and America.

The Steam Deck Twitter account posted an update today notifying users that the system works best in temperatures between 0°C-35°C (32°F-95°F). “If the temperature gets higher than that, Steam Deck may start throttling performance to protect itself,” Valve said.
