Best handheld PC gaming alternatives to Steam Deck

Why Should Xbox Create a Handheld Similar to the Switch and Steam Deck?

With each of the handhelds we’ve rounded up below, what you’re getting is a fully functioning Windows 10 PC gaming device with the ability to take any game library you would have on your desktop with you wherever you go. These may not be super powerful machines that’ll see your frame rates soaring in the hundreds, but they can fit in the palm of your hand—if you have particularly big hands, anyways. Nevertheless, these sorts of devices are much more viable for gaming on the go nowadays.

Some of us will take any opportunity to bring our game libraries out of the house, and perhaps the best way to keep your Steam library close at hand is a handheld PC. Whether the popularity of handheld PCs comes as a result of the lack of desktop silicon available at the moment is hard to say, but Valve’s recent announcement of the Steam Deck was such a hit it’s hard to ignore the trend. In fact, just moments after the $5 reservations went live, the Steam Deck page of the Steam store was so overwhelmed it stopped working.

Some of these, having been the result of crowdfunding campaigns, may not be the easiest task to find new and unused, but they are at least available before the middle of next year.

GPD Win 3
We touted the GPD Win 3 as the Switch alternative we’d been waiting for before the Steam Deck popped up. It’s a modern handheld PC gaming device, and a worthy contender to the high-end Steam Deck models, though it comes in at around double the price.

Aya Neo
The Aya Neo was marketed as the world’s first 7nm handheld gaming device. Having gone on sale in March, it’s another relatively modern option, and comes with the red team’s Zen 2 architecture, for the AMD enthusiasts among us.

OnexPlayer
The OnexPlayer, which we reviewed earlier this year, is one of the higher resolution handheld PC gaming devices around, albeit the chonkier at 1.8lbs (820g). Backed by a hugely successful Indiegogo campaign, there were three options on initial release: Standard Edition, Pro Edition and Ultimate Edition.

Each tier comes with a different Intel Tiger Lake SoC: the Core i7 1135G7, Core i7 1165G7, or Core i7 1185G7. These are coupled with 512GB, 1TB or 2TB of NVMe SSD storage, and backed by 16GB of LPDDR4X-4266 RAM and a touchscreen, to boot.
