Steam Deck's latest Windows driver fixes several performance issues but no dual-boot yet

The Steam Deck console running Windows 11

Valve has released a couple of driver updates for the Steam Deck. There is a new APU or a display driver, which is the major highlight of the announcement, as well as an audio driver.

For example here is a Twitter user who is apparently facing display driver corruption on Windows:
