Next, both of these handhelds are coming in with ryzen apus and they both utilize. A 7 inch 1280×800 screen im a huge fan of both of these gaming handhelds, but there are a lot of differences between both of these, and mainly what were going to be. Focusing on in this video is performance, but well go over a lot of stuff. Now, right off the bat want to get the elephant out of the room pricing. There is a huge gap between the pricing on both of these and it really comes down to valve. Actually being able to sell software on their steam deck, so they can subsidize the cost of the hardware its like microsoft, with the xbox or sony with the ps5. It does cost them more to manufacture the hardware itself, but theyre gon na make their money back selling software down the road on their hardware devices the company that manufactures the ineo next, they dont sell software. They sell hardware, so they cant really subsidize what they have here, and i know that really doesnt matter to the regular consumer, theyre looking for the cheapest hardware, they can get with the best performance and i completely understand that they really dont think about what it cost To manufacture something like this and how these bigger companies are selling their consoles for much cheaper than a smaller company can i can only think of a few companies that would be able to pull this off.

Obviously valve. Did it because they have steam theyre gon na make money on you buying steam games? Microsoft is another one that could do it. Sony should be able to do something like this epic games right about now might be able to pull a hand held off and meta. Formerly known as facebook, but as we know they do those vr headsets. All those companies have something else. They can sell you that will work on their hardware but, like i mentioned a lot of regular consumers, dont think about that, and i completely understand how it goes. The steam deck is definitely going to come in cheaper, but what about specs well over here on the ineo next, the one that i have in my possession right now has the ryzen 7 5800u. They also offer this with the 5825u, its a zen, 3 apu. Eight course, 16 threads weve got a base clock of 1.9 gigahertz or if you opted for the 5825, its 2 gigahertz and for the boost 4.4 to 4.5, built in radeon vega, 8, graphics up to 2000 megahertz and the unit. I have has 16 gigabytes of lpddr4 running at 4 67 megahertz, but you can get this up to 32 gigs and this one has a one terabyte m.2 ssd, that is user replaceable. If you want to get in there when it comes to the steam deck, weve got that custom. Zen 2 apu with 4 cores and 8 threads base clock of 2.

4 gigahertz and a boost up to 3.5, where the steam deck really shines is the new rdna. 2I gpu weve got 8 cus, just like we do in the ineo next, but its only running at sixteen hundred megahertz thats totally fine, because its backed by sixteen gigabytes of lpddr5 running at 5500 megahertz, which really does open up this rdna ii gpu, both of them Utilize, a 7 inch ips display at 1280×800 for the triggers and the joysticks on the ineo next theyve utilized haul sensors, instead of the regular old joystick, like you find in an xbox controller. The neo next has a 47 watt hour battery with 65 watt, quick charging. The steam deck has a 40 watt hour battery with 45 watt, quick charging, wi fi 6 bluetooth 5.2 on the next ac wi fi and bluetooth 5.0 on the steam deck out of the box. The next comes with windows, but you could install linux and uh the steam deck has steam os 3.0, which is based on arch linux, and you can install windows on it. Ive done a video on it, leave a link for that in the description and the steam deck is coming in lighter than the ineo next. So, like i mentioned in this, video were really going to be focusing on performance. I want to see which one will run. Our pc games, better ive, also run some benchmarks on both of these units, so yeah lets go ahead and jump right into it.

At the very top we have the steam deck. This is running at 15 watts in steam, os single core 823 multi 3817. I was also able to run this in windows on the steam deck. We got a little higher on the single core, but theyre really not that far off from each other and just taking a look at the ineo next score here in windows, 10, 1378 single 5813 and thats at a 16 watt tdp, bringing it up to 28 watts Gives us a 1406 and a 6853? I knew that wed get a better score with the io neo next. This has a higher base clock, a higher boost clock and its also based on zen 3, instead of zen 2 thats in the steam deck now its time to move over to some gpu benchmarks. All of this was run with windows 10, because i couldnt get 3dmark to run in linux or steam os when it comes to 3dmark night ray the steam deck at 16. Watts got a total score of 16 126 and that graphic score is up there. Around 21 000. – i also ran it at 16, watts and 28 watts on the ineo next and that cpu score is way up there when you compare it to the steam deck, but the gpu score that we got out of the steam deck is just trump and All of that and bringing that score up moving over to time spy 1722 on the steam deck with the io neo.

Next, at 16 watts we got a 1 306 at 28 watts. It was 1536.. What we can really take away from these benchmarks is the ineo. Next does have a more powerful cpu, but the steam deck is really beating it out in the gpu department, but now its time to move over to the most important part real world gaming. Here we have the io next at 16, watts, god of war, the new pc port, 1280×800, original graphic settings and fsr is set to performance with it like this, its actually really struggling to even maintain 30fps, and it really comes down to this 5800u apu were using Here at 16 watts we just cant provide enough for the cpu and the gpu side of things to keep those clocks on. So i figured what id do is just turn this up to 28 watts. Now, with this set at 28 watts, we can provide enough power to keep that gpu at 2000 megahertz and we can go up a bit higher. We can go up to 35 watts on this unit, but youre gon na burn a lot of power. That cpu is going to get real hot and to tell you the truth, at 35 watts this only runs at an average of 42 fps and at 28 were still struggling to maintain 30. theres. Still some settings we could change. We could take these settings from original down to low and get a little more out of it, but now i want to see what it will do at the same settings on the steam dag the steam decks.

Apu runs at 15. Watts were at 1280×800 original graphics and the only fsr that i have enabled is from the settings in the god of war. Game were set to performance, and you know i could have installed linux on the ineo next and saw what we got using proton. But it was actually meant to run windows thats, really how i wanted to compare these two handhelds, but, as you can see here with the same exact settings, its actually pulling less power, this is performing much better now, with these settings its not going to run at 60Fps, but we do have a 30 lock that we can set on it, and i didnt see it go under 30 at all, so at least with god of war were getting much better performance on the steam deck moving over to the witcher 3 were on the Ineo next right now set at 16 watts, low graphics, obviously at 1280 by 800 and were getting an average of 47 fps. Its playable, like this, i dont mind playing this game at 30 fps. So yeah were good to go here, but lets see what we can do at 28 watts with the witcher 3. same exact settings, but weve taken the tdp up to 28 watts, and from here i got an average of 59 fps after it was all said and Done its more than playable, it seems super smooth and to tell you the truth, if i just turned on vsync and i didnt have that frame counter on, i think we were running at 60 full time, but lets check this out on the steam deck and real Quick, i do want to show you that uh we do have system wide fsr, but its turned off here: im not going to use it with the witcher 3 and were using the same exact settings here.

1280 by 800. Low graphics were getting a really smooth frame rate now its not at a constant 60. I do get some dips down into 57 area, but at 15 watts on the steam deck. This game feels really really good and remember that system wide fsr that valve has implemented on the steam deck will definitely help out moving over to eldon ring on the io neo next, at 16, watts, 1280 by 800, low graphics and even on some of the higher End igpus, i still run into issues with this game. We can get an average of 32 fps out of this game at 16 watts on the io neo, but lets see what we got at 28 Music, we actually got a pretty decent bump in performance, were getting an average of 41 fps now. But to tell you the truth, this game is still relatively new when it comes to optimizations and even on one of the highest in igpus out there, which actually comes in the hs its based on our dna too. Its really hard to run this game. Even on that setup, moving over to the steam deck a little bit, i mean its really not that bad on both of these devices. As long as you go in knowing that this is really a 30 fps game on a handheld seem to be getting a little better performance on the ineo next at 28 watts. But you know we do have that more powerful cpu and that could play a big role in it and finally, for this video we have forza horizon 5.

. Now, with this test here, the steam deck is going to be running windows 10 when we get over there. But here we have it running low graphic settings, 16 watts and every once in a while. I get a stutter, but it does run pretty well were getting an average of 71 fps out of this game, so lets open it up a bit go up to 28 watts, and with this set at 28 watts horizon 5 runs absolutely amazingly, were getting an average Of 92 fps, where 1280 by 800 low graphic settings and its fully playable like this, its more than playable. You definitely want to turn the sync on to save that battery Music heres, the same game running same exact settings were at 15 watts with windows 10, and from here i got an average of 83 fps. You know i got ta say most of these games on a handheld. You definitely want to turn v sync on and both of these consoles will be able to play this at 60fps, so yeah. That was a performance comparison between the ineo next and the new steam deck. In the end, its really up to you, if youre looking for better cpu performance than the ineo next is for you, but you cant deny the price point of the steam deck and that gpu performance out of that custom apu that valve has implemented in this system. I want to do one more comparison: video between the steam deck and the 1x player im, probably gon na, go with the new seven inch version with that 1195 g7.

But i kind of want to do a little face off like we did here.
