On the matter, they have asked Yazan Aldehayyat, hardware engineer of the new Valve gadget, from the IGN media. And, in his words, we should be calm: “We have done a lot of reliability tests on all related fronts. I think Steam Deck will perform very well,” says one of the main people in charge of the project.

I think they are going to perform very well,” says Aldehayyat. To avoid unnecessary problems, Valve confesses that they have used components that they already knew since they did not want to risk it.
