Steam Deck: SteamOS 3 could take up around 15% of the 64GB of internal memory

Steam Deck

The operating system to be used by Steam Deck, SteamOS 3, could occupy 15% of the total memory of the console in its basic version (64 GB).

The information comes from the MetaCouncil forum where the SteamOS release notes image 20211120.2. By means of these, we see that the weight of the Steam Deck operating system will be 10 GB, or about 15% of the 64 GB of the portable console.

However, we remember that in the previous there was talk of 24 GB for SteamOS 3: Valve is reducing the weight of the operating system and it is therefore possible that at the time of the Steam Deck release it will have an even lighter OS. For now, we can say that 10GB may be the maximum.

Steam Deck For comparison, know that Windows 10 64-bit requires more than 20GB, while on PS5 consoles, Xbox Series X | S and Switch, the operating system requires about 20% of the total memory. Put simply, Valve's OS appears to be lean enough right now. In any case, considering that the 64 GB of the basic Steam Deck model is too small to handle large AAA games (which now exceed 100 GB) it is clear that it will be necessary to expand the memory with a microSD.

Steam Deck has been showing off lately, also thanks to the new images of the console's final packaging.
