Valve, for example, recently opened up reservations for its upcoming handheld gaming PC, the Steam Deck, and the response was (to say the least) pretty positive. In fact, it might’ve been a little too positive...
Reservations to buy the Steam Deck were snatched up almost immediately, and even those who managed to break through and secure a spot still aren’t guaranteed to get their hands on a console.
The Aya Neo is one of the most desirable of all the current handheld gaming PC offerings. It runs Windows and has a similar, but not identical CPU and GPU to the Steam Deck, making it capable of handling most AAA titles, though not always at 60fps. You can actually buy an Aya Neo right now with expected shipping in August.
Okay, this isn’t a handheld gaming PC, but the Ayn Odin is an Android-based handheld that might be an emulation slam dunk for anyone not looking to spend $1,000 or more on a high-end portable gaming PC. It’s difficult to give the Ayn Odin a complete rundown since it’s still very much a work in progress, but might be something worth having on your radar.
