Can you play Street Fighter 6 on Steam Deck? – Egaxo
One of gaming’s most legendary fighting games is looking to win back fans in Street Fighter 6, and you’ll be able to run it on the Steam Deck. We go over the best setting and much more.
Street Fighter 6 will be playable on Steam Deck, according to performance from the demo and recent closed beta tests. With the game’s fighting systems deeply rooted in the consistency of its framerate, not having the best performance could be troublesome. But, Valve’s plucky handheld manages to shine.
Using the demo, and looking at previous betas, Capcom wants Street Fighter 6 to be played by anyone, and that includes Steam Deck users. The game runs without any need to alter versions of Proton or make heavy changes and sacrifices to get that much-needed 60FPS performance.
In fact, there are only a few options that need to be changed in the demo version to achieve a solid 60FPS.
Best settings for Street Fighter 6 on Steam Deck
Street Fighter 6 doesn’t support the 800p aspect ratio on the Steam Deck, so you’ll have to put up with a couple of black bars. However, being limited to 720p isn’t too bad, as it’s already a great start to get the most performance out of the device.
For Street Fighter 6, you want to change only a few settings in the “Basic” and “Detailed” graphical menus. In the “Detailed” settings, we turned down everything to Normal. However, you can tune the game to have “High” graphical effects. Though, for those spooked about consistent framerates, you can freely adjust it to be lower.

In “Basic” graphical settings, we turned off Motion Blur, Screen Space Reflection, and Ambient Occlusion. Further down, you want to also turn off the Depth of Field Effect. While these will reduce some quality of the visuals, nothing else matters other than getting that solid, smooth 60FPS.
While we suspect that the autodetecting of settings is a little generous, the game can be played with a vast majority of graphical settings on high or above. However, in our testing of the demo, we found this could cause you to hit anywhere between 45FPS and 55FPS during intense sequences – something unacceptable for a game like this.
Street Fighter 6 relies heavily on every user being near enough the same for performance, to keep matches fair. There’s only so much legwork a server can do if you or your opponent is hitching due to bad PC settings.
