Another “Nintendo Switch with Windows”. Tencent is preparing a handheld game console

Published

on

Chinese giant Tencent, known for having stakes in many of the major gaming publishers around the world, appears to be gearing up to enter the game console market.

True, not at home, but portable. The company recently received a patent for PC Video Game Console, which describes a portable game console of a classic form factor for this segment.

The name, as well as one of the buttons, clearly indicate that the device will work under Windows control. You can note the presence of all the necessary controls, including triggers, stereo speakers, as well as ports USB-C, USB and HDMI.

There won’t be a thin console, but that’s okay for this segment. There is no data on the characteristics so far, but Tencent does not have much choice: either a Tiger Lake CPU with a top-end G7 graphics core, or a Ryzen 4000 or Ryzen 5000 APU. Of course, the company can choose something else, but today the above options look the most optimal, and almost all new Windows consoles are based on such processors.

Of course, the presence of a patent does not mean anything, but, firstly, Tencent is very actively growing in the gaming market, and secondly, the design in this case is not schematic, but drawn in all the small details.

Published

on

Well-known blogger JerryRigEverything got to the new Nintendo Switch OLED game console to test its strength.

The console screen is covered with a plastic sheet, so it is very easy to scratch. For owners of all versions of Switch, this is nothing new. The heating test is still as useless as it always has been, but it can be noted that a trace of the flame remains.

At the same time, the strength of the console is quite high. Despite the size and the presence of the attached parts, as you can see, the application of serious efforts does not lead to any damage. However, you shouldn’t repeat this with your own prefix, of course.
