Handheld Gaming PCs

In the past, if you wanted to game on the go, your only real option was to invest in a handheld gaming device like the Nintendo Switch or the PlayStation Vita. However, with the rise of powerful and affordable handheld gaming PCs, that may be about to change. Unlike a traditional desktop PC or laptop, most handheld gaming PCs can easily fit in your pocket, meaning you can take them with you wherever you go.

Handhelds Tools

Enhance you handheld experience with these tools:

Manage TDP

  • Auto TDP: Developed by Ciphray, Auto TDP is a tool designed to adjust the minimum and maximum TDP (Thermal Design Power) settings of a handheld device. Its standout feature is the Auto TDP functionality, which optimizes TDP settings to achieve a target frame rate of 30 or 40 frames per second while minimizing power consumption. This not only results in cooler operating temperatures but also reduces the total power consumption of the system.

Config controllers & keyboads

  • Handheld Companion: It offers motion control via the device’s IMU or external sensor, tailored for racing, 1st and 3rd person gaming, and emulator use. It simulates Xbox 360 and DualShock 4 controllers, supports PS Remote Play with DS4 controllers, and provides gamepad remapping and deadzone adjustments. With automatic game detection and profile settings, along with 3D controller overlays for streaming and customizable hotkeys, it ensures seamless gaming on the go.
  • JoyToKey: (or Joy2Key) allows PC game controllers to mimic keyboard and mouse inputs. This means you can use your favorite joysticks to control Windows applications and web games. When you press buttons or move sticks on your controller, JoyToKey translates these actions into keyboard strokes and mouse movements. This makes the target application respond as if you were using a real keyboard and mouse.

View status

  • Auto TDP: It shows data via included Riva Tuner.
  • Handheld Companion: Besides managing input, the tool overlay grants easy access to essential settings like TDP, GPU, screen Hz, and battery level.
