Emdoor, a Chinese company known for its Mini-PCs and tablet business, is venturing into the handheld gaming device market with a device powered by Intel's upcoming Meteor Lake-H processor. The company showcased the device at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair 2023 event.
The device doesn't have a unique design, but it does have some custom features, such as a built-in stand. However, the most notable feature is the new Meteor Lake H-processor with an Intel Arc 5 integrated graphics card.
It has a TDP of 20W to 25W, which is higher than the Steam Deck (9W) and the ASUS ROG Ally (15W). However, Emdoor says that the CPU package power fluctuates between 2W to 5W when the system is in an idle state or operating within its custom UI overlay.
Emdoor has not released any performance numbers for the device yet, but the Xe-Cores in the Arc 5 integrated graphics card are expected to be powerful enough to run today's latest AAA games. A video from Notebook Italia shows God of War running smoothly on the device.
Additionally, the device features an 8-inch screen with a 1920 x 1200 resolution, up to 32GB of LPDDR5X RAM, and up to a 2TB PCIe Gen 4×4 SSD.
The Emdoor handheld gaming device is expected to compete with the ASUS ROG Ally, the Nintendo Switch, and the Valve Steam Deck.
