Cyberpunk 2077 Running Great On the Steam Deck!?

This is just another quick post as new leaks keep coming up from different sources. This time it’s a video of someone playing Cyberpunk 2077 on the Steam Deck. It’s not clear what are the settings used, nevertheless even on lower settings this would demonstrate great and very acceptable performance for a PC you can carry in your hand! (Probably better than my older desktop with a dedicated GPU!). Note: since we cannot confirm the source, it’s entirely possible that this is the Steam Deck streaming the game from a more powerful machine, so take this video with a grain of salt until we have other sources confirming this kind of performance.

That’s all for now, expect a lot more details about the Deck in the coming week as some journalists are apparently reaching the end of their embargo in just a few days.

As many people have pointed out, it’s most likely streamed content.


This is being streamed. You can tell by the input latency. Delete this article, it’s not running on the deck and this is false advertising.


Then change the title to something more accurate. Title implies it’s running directly on it.
