A new update for Steam Deck has been released, which allows users to opt for the beta version of Steamos 3.2. The latest beta version offers a series of improvements with respect to version 3.1, including changes in system fan control and the screen update frequency. Users who decide to opt for the beta version can help improve system performance and provide comments on their experience. Patch notes for these changes of Steam Official Website can be found below:
- A fan curve controlled by the operating system was added to improve the experience in low -use scenarios and adjust how the fan responds to different scenarios and temperatures.
- A problem was solved by which the control of the operating system fan did not resume automatically after activating the device from the suspension mode.
- Experimental support was added to change the frequency of updating the screen in the game. The update frequency will automatically adjust to the desired option when entering and leaving the game.
- There is a new slider in the fast access menu> Performance tab that allows you to choose a screen update frequency between 40-60Hz
- The sliding control values of the frame speed limit will be updated accordingly and include photograms speed options 1: 1: 2, 1: 4 or without limit.
From April 29 * This function has been improved to cause less black screen time by changing the update frequency.
* A problem was solved when writing the € key using the Steam keyboard
It will be interesting to see how fans react to the new beta version and how these changes improve user experience. Some users are already noticing some problems with the new beta version, including system blockages, but it is difficult to say how frequent these problems could be. With luck, these changes will prove to be for better, and any hardware problem that results will be easily repairable.
Steam Deck seems to be a fairly popular piece of hardware at this time, although Valve seems to be fighting to meet demand. Of course, that is a problem with most video game hardware at this time, so those interested in obtaining a Steam Deck will have to continue waiting patiently.
