Steam Deck: Docking Station Issues

From Andrew Link ,
Due to material shortages and factory closures due to COVID, the Steam Deck Docking Station announced for Spring 2022 has been further delayed.

Valve confirms docking station for Steam will be delayed decks. The docking station was actually supposed to appear in spring 2022, but it didn’t and with the summer months approaching, the statement is now coming without a new date. “Due to a shortage of essential components and the COVID-related closure of our production facilities, the launch of the official Steam Deck Docking Station has been delayed. We are working flat out to rectify the situation and will have more information as soon as we have it.” Will inform you. . This does not affect the production schedule and reservation period for steam decks that use different components and made in different factories”.

“In the meantime, we’re constantly improving the Steam Deck docking experience with all USB-C hubs and external displays,” Valve said. The port for the Steam Deck has already been upgraded: originally, the Dock was only supposed to offer one USB-A 3.1, two USB-A 2.0, and an Ethernet port for a stable network connection. There are also connections for DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0, which can transmit the image. This allows users to easily connect their peripherals and fast data storage to the Steam Deck while playing on a TV or monitor. However, two months ago, all three USB ports were quietly and covertly upgraded to the FAST 3.1 standard and it was explicitly informed that the Ethernet port is a gigabit port. Only screen connections remain the same.

Prices have not been mentioned yet; You blindly order the dock. If you’re looking for a quick fix and can do without the introduced character of the original, you can also get a third-party docking station that serves basically the same purpose. But first you should check compatibility. In fact this should always be the case, but in practice problems arise here and there.
