Steam Deck has M.2 2230 SSD slot, but Valve does not recommend upgrading it


Recommended Posts


By far the biggest question from Valve’s Steam Deck announcement was, can the onboard SSD drive be upgraded? Well as it turns out it can, however, it is neither cheap nor recommended.

Gabe Newell responded to a few emails from Reddit Steam community members, who were asking about the Steam Decks SSD. In particular, people were interested whether it makes sense to buy the most expensive variant which comes with 512GB, or rather buy a cheaper model and upgrade the SSD themselves. Valve’s CEO confirmed that the console uses M.2 slot NVMe 2230 drive, which is indeed available on a retail market, but it is not a widespread availability
