The highly anticipated Street Fighter 6 Demo has been released on PC this week and gamers are starting to get a better idea of how it runs on the Steam Deck. For enthusiasts without hefty laptops, the Steam Deck appears to be the ideal platform for playing Street Fighter 6 on the go.

However, when the demo was first launched, many Steam Deck owners experienced start-up crashes. This issue has since been resolved by configuring Street Fighter 6 under the Proton Experimental settings, according to Valve’s Lawrence Yang.

To better understand how the game runs on the Steam Deck, Chris Okamura recorded some footage of the SF6 Demo running on normal settings. While the maximum limit for graphics processing unit (GPU) is around 55 fps, gamers can use the custom graphics settings suggested by the Steam OS to keep the demo running at a consistent 60fps in Versus mode.

For those who prefer to fiddle with settings, gamers suggest turning the shader and effects quality to low while keeping everything else at normal to reach 60fps at 700p resolution. As of yet, there is no information available on input lag issues when running Street Fighter 6 on the Steam Deck.

Despite this, it is still great news for fans that the Steam Deck is capable of running Street Fighter 6 smoothly and it could become a favoured platform for enthusiasts on the go.

Street Fighter 6 is scheduled for release on June 2, 2023, and gamers can expect it to be available on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
