Production of the Steam Deck has improved to such an extent that Valve can begin shipping out more than twice the amount of its portables every week, according to a tweet shared on the handheld’s official Twitter channel today that can also confirm the company has finished sending out its last batch of Q2 emails, allowing it to move on to Q3 orders, all of which should be shipping out between the months of July and September. Valve previously announced that the official docking station for the Steam Deck had been delayed indefinitely due to parts shortages and COVID closures at its manufacturing facilities, but it remains unclear when that accessory with HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, Gigabit Ethernet, and 3x USB 3.1 ports will ultimately ship out. Reservations for the acclaimed handheld continue to be taken, although current orders aren’t expected to be fulfilled until October 2022 or later. A recent video shared by Valve highlights some of the improvements that the Steam Deck has received since its release in February, including per-app performance profiles, adjustable refresh rates, and improved Windows support.

It’s been a few months since we launched Steam Deck, and we’re floored by the excitement we’ve seen as more and more customers receive their Steam Decks and share impressions. The team has loved seeing pictures and videos of where you’re using it, how you’re using it, how you’ve customized it, and what you’re playing. Keep it coming!

In the meantime, we’ve continued working through our own list of bugs to fix and features to add. We’ve also been paying attention to our customers, and a good number of the updates in the last couple months are directly due to customer feedback. Please keep that coming as well!
