A User Built His Own Handheld Console: The Performance is Amazing!

A Reddit user built his own handheld console with the parts he had. Here are the details!

It’s hard to imagine that anyone interested in portable handheld consoles hasn’t heard of Steam Deck, but one Reddit user says he “didn’t know” it existed. What’s more, he managed to build his own handheld console just for that reason.

The new handheld and homemade handheld console in question comes from Raven0606, who posts in the r/SBCGaming subreddit. The handheld console took nine months to complete and Raven0606 has named it the Ryzen Deck in honor of the Steam Deck. Raven0606 says he learned about Valve’s handheld console halfway through the production process.

The Reddit user shared several images on Reddit, including prototypes from the production process. Inside his handheld console is AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600G APU. The gamepad buttons are taken from an Xbox controller that Raven0606 connected to an Arduino Micro board.

Amazing Handheld Console Performance

In any case, from the front, the handheld console doesn’t look too far from handheld consoles like Steam Deck and Rog Ally, but on the back there are two large fans and a cable that connects the handheld console to the battery. What’s more, the console weighs around 1.5 kg, which makes it much heavier than its counterparts.

Raven0606 says the project took more than 1,200 hours to complete, spread over nine months. The Reddit user says his APU can run light games at 30 FPS per second in 28-watt mode, and up to 65W for games like The Witcher 3. At 65W, Raven0606 says he can get 45 to 55 FPS in such games.
