How Well Does Hogwarts Legacy Perform on Steam Deck?

Judging by the current information available online, Hogwarts Legacy runs very well on Steam Deck, with a stable 30 FPS on a 720p resolution (technically, 1200×800 which is the resolution of a Steam Deck device, but that’s about it, 720p is the closest approximation). The FPS counter will sometimes reach 60 FPS, in areas where there’s not a lot of strain on Steam Deck’s GPU, such as some cutscenes, or gameplay in closed areas such as small rooms. The open-world area might sometimes show some performance hits in rare cases, but other than that, the community’s feedback is fairly positive on the matter.
