Steam Deck Update 3.6.5 Brings VRR Support for Smoother Gaming on HDMI TVs

The latest update to SteamOS, version 3.6.5, introduces Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support for the Steam Deck when connected to compatible TVs via HDMI. This enhancement optimizes the visual performance by synchronizing the display’s refresh rate with the output frame rate of the Steam Deck. This synchronization reduces screen tearing and stuttering, providing a smoother gaming experience. The update is part of Valve’s ongoing efforts to improve the hardware capabilities of the Steam Deck, ensuring it remains competitive and adaptable to modern display technologies. Users looking to take advantage of this feature should ensure their TV supports HDMI VRR. For more detailed information, visit PC Guide’s full coverage.
