Valve doubles production of Steam Deck

The portable Steam Deck was launched in cold February this year. So far, the product has proven to be significantly hotter with a long-term placement on Steams bestsellers, a list where the lone hardware product is surrounded by games. However, high demand has drawbacks and only those who were the fastest to book have received their units.

At present, anyone who wants to order a delivery date will meet sometime after the third quarter of the year. Now the situation seems to be brightening, as Valve is increasing the pace of production to alleviate the situation and better meet demand. This is confirmed by the Steam Deck profile on Twitter which announces that production has more than doubled recently. They also add that they will soon begin sending e-mails to third-wave pre-bookings that have been promised a chance to buy during the third quarter of the year.

Like many others, due to a lack of circuitry and components, Valve was forced to postpone the launch of Steam Deck, which contributed to the long waiting times for those who pre-booked. Valve does not specify where the bottleneck in the production line has been. In recent months, however, the situation has eased and access to graphics cards, among other things, has improved. It is possible that it also extended to the Zen 2-based system circuit from AMD that runs Steam Deck.

Valve has not yet updated the estimated delivery times, but announces in its post that from now on it can be delivered twice as many units per week. The escalation of deliveries should thus lead to shorter waiting times, even if the future may show to what extent.
