Ever since the release of Valve’s Steam Deck in 2022, the PC handheld market has increased considerably. These days, there are more major players in the market and just recently, MSI also announced its arrival on the scene with the introduction of MSI Claw. Besides the Steam Deck and Lenovo Legion Go, there’s also Asus’s Rog Ally. In fact, the Rog Ally was the next major PC handheld to make its debut after the launch of Steam Deck.
