Key Takeaways

  • Use Steam Remote Play to stream games from your gaming PC to your Steam Deck locally. Just make sure Steam is running on your PC and select the option to stream the game from your PC on your Deck.
  • Steam Remote Play may have performance issues and compatibility problems with certain games or mods. You can switch to Desktop Mode to improve performance, but it may still not be as good as NVIDIA GameStream tech.
  • For the best local streaming experience on your Steam Deck, use Moonlight and NVIDIA GameStream if you have an NVIDIA graphics card. If you have an AMD or Intel GPU, you can use Sunshine as an alternative solution.
