A new Steam Deck Beta Client update was released today. It is a smaller one, but it has a couple big features added with it. The ability to rename controllers and support for low latency networking with Steam Link has been added, but the biggest feature added is the ability to now display the disk usage being taken up from the shader cache. This is awesome to now be able to see the space being taken up by the shader cache:
