Hi-Fi Rush at max settings
Since Hi-Fi Rush is a visually pleasing game with vibrant and colourful graphics, you may be tempted to turn the graphics up to the max. But we should warn you that this will have some negative effects on the battery life as well as the frame rate.
While testing Hi-Fi Rush with max settings, SteamDeckHQ noticed that the "game would spike above 23W and framerate could drop to 56-57," which would make it difficult to play the game smoothly. Hopefully, Steam Deck 2 will be able to handle the game at max settings quite well.
So, we recommend you follow the settings we outlined here. Those are the best Hi-Fi Rush settings for Steam Deck to get the best performance out of the game.
