Logitech G and Tencent are building a cloud gaming handheld set to release later this year

Logitech G and Tencent are building a cloud gaming handheld set to release later this year
Logitech G, the gaming-focused branch of the maker of PC and console peripherals, has announced a partnership with Tencent Games to release a “cloud gaming handheld” later this year. The two companies are in talks with the teams behind Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now, which presumably means that these services will be supported out of the box. They will allow gamers to play AAA titles on the go. The announcement talks solely of cloud gaming – it’s not even clear if any games will be able to run on the device itself. This sets it apart from the likes of the Steam Deck, which is focused on local gaming (it can do cloud gaming too, but it’s cumbersome without an onboard 5G or even 4G connection). Renders of Tencent's "PC Console" from a patent filed in 2020 This could be unrelated, but earlier this...

Starting with PG34WQ15R, this is a 34-inch curved monitor with a VA panel, 3440×1440 resolution, 165Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync Premium support. The other curved monitor is the PG27Q15R, but the specifications are unknown. Still, judging by its name, it should feature a QHD 27-inch VA curved panel.

Another flat panel listed by ASRock is the PG32QF, but like the PG27Q15R, the specifications weren't...
