The Steam Deck PC gaming handheld is such a niche device, it had very little competition.
Now, there’s two more portable game consoles capable of playing PC games: the Aya Neo 2 and Aya Neo Slide.
According to a report from Liliputing, both Aya Neo 2 and Aya Neo Slide will use an upgraded Ryzen 7 6800U chip with a Radeon 680M integrated graphics card.
That GPU is capable of pushing 3.38 teraflops, more than twice the capabilities offered by Steam Deck (1.6 teraflops).
That means both the Neo 2 and the Neo Slide are potentially a lot more powerful than Valve’s Steam Deck, though until they’re in the hands of reviewers we’ll not know for sure.
So, what else do they offer?
Both handheld PC consoles come with LPDDR5-6400 RAM, PCIe 4.0 storage, USB 4.0 ports and fingerprint scanners.
However, the Aya Neo Slide is definitely the flashier option.
As you could guess from the name, the console screen slides and reveals a RGB keyboard. Remember the side-sliding QWERTY phones of the mid 2000s? The design definitely borrows from that.
Aya has not announced the pricing or launch date of either device but says they’ll be here later this year. Based on the previous Aya Neo models, expect the price to start at $1000.
