The Steam Deck Gets a Rival In the Onexplayer Mini

While PC gaming fans avidly await the arrival of the Steam Deck, the original December arrival date of which was pushed back by supply chain delays, another portable PC gaming handheld has entered the picture. (No, it’s not the Nintendo Switch.) Chinese technology company One-Netbook has announced the Onexplayer Mini, a smaller, even more portable version of its Onexplayer gaming device.

The Onexplayer Mini runs Windows 11, which allows users to play games that they would normally experience on a PC. It also has a touchscreen, as well as the usual controller-based inputs, and promises high-end graphical capabilities. The

One-Netbook Is Testing Its Own AMD-Powered Handheld to Challenge Steam Deck

Indiegogo startup One-Netbook is giving gamers a chance to test its new AMD-powered handheld gaming console called the “OneXplayer AMD Edition.” According to a Tweet by @OnenetbookO (via Liliputing) gamers can sign up for a chance to get this new handheld device from One-Netbook for the sole purpose of putting it through its paces. 

Unfortunately, details of the device’s system specs remain a mystery, so it appears that aside from letting us know it will be powered by an AMD chip, One-Netbook isn’t ready to show the world exactly what it’s working on just yet.

One-Netbook is building a Steam Deck rival that you can test before release

In brief: With Steam Deck creating so many headlines, it was just a matter of time before we saw similar concepts emerge. Before Steam Deck, there were already some, like the Intel-based OneXplayer from One-Netbook. This same company is now developing an AMD-based portable console you can test soon.

One-Netbook is giving select individuals the chance to try its upcoming OneXplayer AMD Edition. For now, besides packing an AMD chip, we don’t know any specifications of the portable console, but the company should unveil them before release.

However, we know the specifications of the Intel-based models, which should be relatively

AMD and Valve Working on CPU Driver That Could Boost Steam Deck Performance

According to a report from Phoronix, AMD and Valve are working together to design a better CPU performance scaling driver for Linux, targeting the Steam Deck gaming console. 

Valve has recently launched its Steam Deck gaming console that houses AMD’s custom Ryzen APU with embedded RDNA 2 GPU and Zen 2 CPU powered by a Linux-based Arch operating system (OS). Given that this system runs a Linux-based OS, Valve has to optimize the software as much as possible to ensure a smooth and consistent gaming experience across various AAA titles.

Just like the Nintendo Switch, the Steam Deck is the result of failed hardware

The Steam Deck is set to become the handheld gaming PC of many players’ dreams when it launches next year, but Valve staffers have come forward to say it likely wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for some of Valve’s more notable flops – such as the Steam Machine.

The Steam Machine was a kind of pre-built gaming PC running a Linux-based operating system known as SteamOS. Valve didn’t manufacture them itself, instead working in collaboration with third-party manufacturers like Alienware. While you can still get Steam Machines here and there, though, they didn’t exactly set the market alight, and

According to Valve, the Steam Deck is more than capable of chewing through titles on the PC platform, despite its relatively low hardware specs. Whether an APU has the necessary chops to drive traditional PC gaming is a valid question. While Nintendo has sold a huge number of Switches with weaker hardware than the Steam Deck. Nintendo also has an army of developers who explicitly code for its platforms and their hardware. Valve’s Steam Deck might get some special attention from developers that want

Opinion: The Steam Deck Queue Showed How Companies Can Fight Against Hardware Scalpers

Within the last year, AMD, Nvidia, Sony, and Microsoft released new gaming hardware. Like every major hardware release, demand is always high, but fervent demand for next-gen consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S and new PC graphics cards turned the act of purchasing these high-ticket items into a recurring nightmare akin to going to your favorite retail store on Black Friday, hoping to find something good at a discounted price, but with all that disappointment popping up again and again from home.

So, when Valve announced the Steam Deck, I, and I’m sure
