Steam Deck will allow players to replace Steam OS with third-party operating systems, such as Windows 11 . There are still several months to go before the launch of the new Microsoft operating system, but Valve is already working to integrate support on its new portable console, with the collaboration of AMD.
The confirmation came thanks to an interview with PC Gamer by Greg Coomer. The designer explains that until now the team has focused mainly on support for Windows 10 , but that the first tests have shown that there is nothing that can preclude compatibility between Windows 11 and Steam Deck.

Coomer adds that the Valve developers in these weeks are running tests with the TPM (Trusted Compatibility Module) and collaborating with AMD to ensure full compatibility regarding the BIOS.
In recent weeks Valve has explained that Steam Deck is intended to be a long-lived console, “future-proof”, so it is natural that compatibility with Windows 11 is one of the company’s priorities, given that the new operating system will most likely be the benchmark of PC gaming for years to come.
