Lilbits: Handheld gaming PCs, iPhone 14's repairability improvements, and Google Tensor G2 chip details – Liliputing


Sep 20, 2022

Valve has been ramping up production of its Steam Deck handheld gaming PC throughout the year, and while there were long wait times when the portable computer went on sale earlier this year, the wait times are getting shorter and shorter.
Meanwhile other companies making handheld gaming computers are releasing new details about upcoming devices. GPD is showing off the backlit keyboard on the upcoming GPD Win 4, as well as revealing that it will be one of the first devices of its type to have a display that has a native landscape orientation (small screens often default to portrait mode). And One Netbook says its first ONEXPLAYER handheld with an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U chip is on the way.
Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

Wow! Native landscape! That’s a pretty huge feature. (Well if you were mainlining Windows exclusively)
For those unaware older games on Windows DX8 or older need to a wrapper to display correctly.
Even Steam Deck has a portrait based display. https://t.co/AoSOh2BWD3

The iPhone 14 is the easiest iPhone to repair in years, because it can be opened from the front and the back, so you might not have to disassemble the whole thing to repair one part. But the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are as hard to open as ever. https://t.co/Mb5KQDIOvt pic.twitter.com/6XfJOuDgDt

Looks like the Pixel 7’s Tensor G2 chip has the same CPU core structure as the G1, but slightly higher clock speeds and a move to a 4nm process for maybe a 10% speed boost. The Mali-G710 GPU should bring 20-35% better performance. https://t.co/VG6YlQkgCW
