Better off waiting for Steam Deck at that price.

There will be a standalone version of the 2+ as well. It's not as powerful as some of the other new handhelds coming out but I like the screen ratio on this one. All the others coming out are widescreen.

The Powkiddy X18s is the newest retro gaming handheld to release this year, and it is also the most powerful clamshell device you can buy. In this first look, we examine the specs, build quality, screen, software, and thermal performance of the Powkiddy x18s.

GPD owners now have a choice! GameCube, PS2 and DC represent the line for retro gaming to me. Playing those on a handheld with upscaling feels like a dream.

Although this handheld seems like it is OK it sounds like it might be better to wait and see how some of the other upcoming releases are.

I built that mini itx machine back in 2019 with a Ryzen 2200G, it's crazy that two years later and we've got a slightly more powerful handheld version. $1300+ USD is a bit eye-watering for that luxury, but the available library is crazy for something like this.
