MSI introduced a Steam Deck competitor based on the Intel Meteor Lake chip called Claw

MSI is gearing up to launch its Claw portable gaming PC, which is set to compete with the Asus ROG Ally, Lenovo Legion Go and Valve’s Steam Deck. The VideoCardz portal notes that the device is equipped with an Intel Meteor Lake processor family.

Externally, the Claw is similar to the ROG Ally. However, unlike the Asus and Lenovo handhelds, which use the AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme, the Claw has an Intel chip. The leak suggests that MSI’s solution will come with 32GB of RAM – double that of the ROG Ally and Legion Go.

The Claw is equipped with a Core Ultra 7 155H processor with 16 cores and 22 threads, which is twice the parameters of the Ryzen Z1 Extreme, writes the author of VideoCardz. Intel’s hardware is a hybrid of P-cores and E-cores, which has not yet become popular among pocket computer manufacturers due to limitations in graphics performance.

Claw’s visual effects are handled by the Arc Alchemist GPU with 8 Xe cores, which can be clocked up to 2.25 GHz.

In the information released by VideoCardz, there is no information about the screen size, resolution or whether the Claw is equipped with an OLED display. Based on the published photos, the PC has the same dimensions as the 7-inch ROG Ally.

MSI is likely to provide the Claw at CES 2024, which will be held from January 9 to 12 in Las Vegas. Once on the market, the company’s portable PC will be one of the most productive on the market.
