Logitech G, a gaming division of Logitech, and Tencent’s partnership has spawned a new handheld gaming device. It will be a cloud gaming device and WinFuture has been able to unearth a few key details about its specifications. Let’s have a look at them below.
According to the report, there have been multiple spottings of a Logitech device with model number “GR006” in GeekBench listings from March 2022. The device is believed to be the upcoming Logitech G gaming handheld. As per the Geekbench listing, the gaming device is powered by an octa-core chipset with two cores clocked at 2.2GHz and six cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The report speculates that it could be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset, which was a mid-range mobile processor built on the 8nm fabrication process. It isn’t 5G ready yet and will only support 4G networks. The prototype on Geekbench was seen equipped with 4GB RAM.
The device managed to score around 550 points in single-core tests and around 1650 points in the multi-core tests on Geekbench 5. These results may seem too low and you may even write off this device as unimpressive. But, outright power isn’t what Logitech is targeting. It will be a cloud gaming device and the processor and GPU combo are expected to handle most cloud-based games with ease. Furthermore, the Snapdragon processor supports displays with up to Full HD+ resolution and 120Hz screen refresh rate.
