Many of us had convinced ourselves that portable consoles they were a thing of the past. This type of machine had its heyday many years ago, and the popularity of recent desktop consoles, as well as the dominance of the PC and mobile devices (with large companies sticking their heads), left a complicated scenario.

However, things changed, in large part thanks to the Nintendo Switch, with an unbeatable hybrid proposal that has triggered the existence of the Steam Deck. But this has also been the case thanks to cloud game, which allows you to play games on devices that, without streaming, would not be able to move them. AND Qualcomm he wants the industry to continue down that path.

It is a chip specifically designed for use in future handheld consoles, but with a difference: it tries to offer guarantees for devices that want to play games in the cloud.

The developers are the first lucky ones to be able to test this new Snapdragon G3x, so we will have to wait to get a glimpse of the use made of it by the first devices that have the technology. Meanwhile, the closest hardware is Steam Deck, which has been pushed back to 2022 due to a general lack of supplies.
