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.

Valve provides a deep dive into Steam Deck’s custom hardware design

Valve’s full, hours-long, developer-focused presentation.

Valve’s portable Steam Deck hardware may be delayed by a couple of months, but that didn’t stop Valve from discussing plenty of interesting details about the system during a wide-ranging developer-focused livestream Friday. That included a lot of nitty-gritty talk about hardware specs and software interpolation, but also design decisions surrounding how to balance hardware-power and battery-power concerns.
AMD’s custom-built Steam Deck APU, dubbed Aerith after the Final Fantasy VII character, is the core of the system and was a focus of the presentation. AMD says the system is the company’s first mobile chip to

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

August Was a Bad Month for AMD in the Steam Hardware Survey

It is the beginning of a new month, and Valve just updated its Steam Hardware Survey, giving us an updated glimpse into the millions of systems with Steam installed. The latest survey shows an interesting drop in AMD’s CPU market share, hitting its lowest point during 2021.

Valve’s Steam Hardware Survey is not exactly a scientific tracker of processor market share. The survey relies on millions of volunteers to participate, providing data on their rigs with Valve crunching the data ready for publication every single month. However, it still represents a great way to get some insights into market

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
