While MSI has been teasing its foray into the handheld gaming PC market, with more details to be officially unveiled during CES 2024, details about the system have seemingly been leaked online. According to a post on social media platform X, the system will reportedly be dubbed the MSI Claw.
In terms of physical design, the MSI Claw doesn’t seem to differ too much from other handheld gaming PCs in the market. It features a massive display in the center, flanked by buttons and analogue sticks on both sides.
Other leaks have provided some more details about the system’s hardware. According to leaked benchmark results, the MSI Claw reportedly runs on an Intel Meteor Lake chip. The benchmark, uploaded to Geekbench back in December, indicates that the Claw will run on Windows 11, and will feature a 16-core CPU clocked at 3.80GHz and a maximum frequency of 4.78GHz. Topping things off is the fact that the Claw will reportedly feature 32GB of RAM.
Unfortunately, no other details, such as internal storage, or even display resolution and screen size, are currently available.
Interestingly, MSI’s offering is setting itself apart from its competitors, including the Steam Deck, Asus ROG Ally and the Lenovo Legion Go by making use of an Intel chip rather than one made by AMD.
