The best Windows 10 game consoles

The PGS Windows 10 game console

The PGS game console is actually a little monster. This handheld gaming device can play your favorite PC games at 1440p, runs Windows 10, supports Steam games, and offers 8 GB of RAM, and a 128 GB hard drive.

Thanks to the automatic performance adjustment feature, the game console establishes the optimum power consumption in the gaming process. In this manner, battery drain is limited to a minimum.

Another interesting feature is the adaptive cooling system. When the CPU switches to high-performance mode, a tiny cooling fan starts working, backing up the copper heat sink. Thanks to this innovation, the CPU and the GPU can work at 2.4GHz and 600MHz, respectively.

Other features include:
