Steam Deck OLED vs LCD - Worth Upgrading?

    I've had my hands on the Steam Deck OLED for the past week and want to talk about how it compares to the original. Is OLED worth the higher price point? If you already bought a regular Steam Deck, is it worth the upgrade? Let's talk OLED vs LCD display, battery life, larger screen, better wifi, and a variety of other little differences in this new model.

I love the handheld Steam Deck experience. I got my younger brother to grab a 64gb Steam Deck as an affordable option for a PC. I had an ssd ready for him. He eventually came around to it despite being stubborn. Baldur's Gate 3 has been alot of fun. I bought the 512gb OLED. My little brother is getting my LCD model. So I felt it was worth it.

​@@SammyHardman8I stream games that don't work on steam os from my Xbox to the deck. Plus it saves battery life. Although, I will admit if you don't have a current gen Xbox, it probably will have considerable latency. I'm using a series x with 5g wifi in my house and it works fantastic.

There's two points for the Steam Deck OLED that Kevin failed to mention in this video which can have a tangible impact on gameplay: (1) the RAM in the OLED is significantly faster than the base Steam Deck which CAN actually increase performance in some games that were memory bandwidth constrained and (2) the higher refresh rate of the screen can make games look and feel smoother to play even if you're not running at 90Hz as the screen can now refresh twice if you set the frame-rate limit at 45FPS and 3 times at 30FPS. Digital Foundry actually confirmed through their own testing that response time in these situations on the OLED is indeed improved over the OG Steam Deck. When you pair this with the fact that the OG Steam Deck actually had a lackluster LCD display (even as far as LCD displays go it was quite bad in quality) it becomes REALLY DIFFICULT to recommend the base Steam Deck unless you pick one up on the cheap (the market is quickly being flooded with them as people sell off their OG models for the OLED so that actually might be the play if price is your biggest concern).

Picked up an used 512gb LCD model last week for $315. The OLED is nice with the new 90hz screen but for the games that I played, mostly emulators and switch games. I don’t really care for it. If I want absolute picture quality and performance, I go back to my PC.

On top off all the screen upgrades listed, everyone always forgets that the touch screen is also WAY better. Making the on-screen keyboard, time management games, hidden object games, and DS Emulation so much better. No complaints on the touch now. The LCD touch is so bad.

Shrunk die size(Efficient and cooler) clocks higher as the boost algorithm allows it to due to heat threshold, paired with faster and more efficient ram…With undervolt, it equates to about 8% better performance compared to the OG deck. Also 50% and maybe even better battery is unreal! I would elect to save up for the OLED even if you’re really wanting one right NOW. I own both decks and even the ROG Ally. I firmly believe that the Steamdeck OLED is THE BEST handheld gaming system out there right now.

Was intentional honestly and Valve is not getting enough flak for it. They swore up and down when the deck released that they weren't doing OLED anytime soon and basically down played the idea right up until the shadow dropped the OLED model. No heads up anywhere because of course that would have killed sales of the LCD model immediately. They wanted people to get stuck with the LCD model which is crummy for sure.

I'd upgrade if Valve discounted the purchase because I own the first model. I don't see much use in the upgrade since Steam OS 3.5.5 rolled out, which upgraded the color vibrancy to sRGB, which makes everything look so much better. I read that the specs are the same between models beyond the OLED having better battery life, which doesn't bother me because I've got a power bank to mitigate that.

I really don't love the way they've split the screen options between the storage models, that feels like something you should be able to choose independently of the storage. It just seems like a sneaky way to force people who want the anti glare glass to pay for the bigger storage model, while also not being great for people who might NOT want the anti glare glass but do want more built in storage. Generally seems like a great upgrade from the original just wish they weren't using this kind of annoying upselling technique.

Depends on your TV/monitor I guess. If you have an OLED monitor or TV and you just want the Deck for portable play, the LCD version is certainly better for you value-wise.

Honestly i don't think it's worth it for me personally. I've been able to play on my Nintendo DS for hours, and i don't really care about the screen difference. I'm sure it's a good upgrade but for that price I'm good. Also, to battery i can just carry a portable power bank, or if I'm in a vehicle I'll be near a charger port, it's not much of an issue for me personally

My biggest gripe with my steam deck was always the screen and I even received a ton of flak for it. That LCD was a bummer man just everything looked washed out grey really was distracting at times especially if you had the higher end etched screen which made it look even worse. It's so bad that yes I would say it's worth upgrading and don't get the 1TB just the 512 and upgrade the SSD yourself. The screen is that freaking bad it's like the used an LCD screen from the year 2001. Sale your LCD deck if you can or don't still get the OLED(you can use your old deck as a dedicated docked unit or something). Do not cheap out by buying a discounted LCD model unless it's going to a kid who you know will end up destroying it. My god I can't stress this enough. Lastly, unless you spend all day gaming outside in the sun it just isn't worth the visual hit you take with the anti glare screen imo. I don't know of anyone who won't at least be playing in a shaded area. I'm being a bit over enthusiastic of course. If you have a Deck it does make the OLED a much harder sale and I understand everyone's financial situation is different. I just really hated that screen end rant.

I have both. I have my son use the first gen and play Minecraft Java using a Create modpack. I notice the OLED giving me a ~10 hour runtume and operates way cooler while OG has a ~6 hour runtume and feels toasty. Both run very well and recommend either device especially since ive seen the 512GB going around $300 in Marketplace.

I bought the oled and gave my lcd version to my brother. It is so much better and definitely worth the money, I'm honestly glad i held off on the rogue ally. The oled is worth the upgrade even if you have and lcd, just sell it and come up with the rest in my opinion 😊

I wish more people would know and mention that even though the LCD deck is listed as being 400 nits, it regularly tests at over 500 so the higher oled brightness isn't really that relevant in sdr content

2 месяца назад
@alexh7513 +2
@alexh7513

It is more than 400 nits, but not over 500. It's 450 nits. 600 nits is not a lot more but it's noticeable. Also it has HDR with up to 1000 nits and the lcd version doesn't have it. So in case of the brightness the oled version is a lot better. But if you only play SDR indoor with low dimming light environment than the brightness is not that import.

@@theo5675 Yeah but with 18W the rog ally performs very good with about 2-3 hours battery life and no noticeable fan noice. And with 18 W it has about 30% more power. And 40 fps on the rog ally in comparison to 30 fps on the steamdeck is a gamechanger. Also it's nice to have the possability to go up to 30W and have double the power from the steamdeck.

I waited for the steam deck for a reason, and i bought the 256GB LCD version, then 5 months later they come with the Upgraded OLED version, this made me somehwat pissed, as they said they would not come with upgrades, i said this on another video from someone else and a random dude became angry at me and said *Oh so valve should not come with upgrades because of you* like NO thats not what i said at all or what i mean, i find it shity that they come with 1 model and say they wont upgrade and then suddenly they come with new ones, it feels a bit like you were cheated out of the newer one, as i cant just get another one as what am i suppose to do with my other steam deck.

Saying that there is no performance difference between the LCD and OLED versions is pretty disingenuous. The APU went from 7nm -> 6nm, so power efficiency is much better and allows for the fans that have also been upgraded to not run high of an RPM while also letting the clock speeds boost higher. The performance *target* has not changed, but that doesn't mean that there isn't a little more performamce to be had. I've gotten a noticeable, however not always significant, amount of better performance across the board and so has just about everyone else who didn't completely lose the silicon lottery.
