Castor is a new app that will allow you to stream from your PC to an Android device using a process known as paravirtualization. This means you can allocate a portion of you PC’s resources to create a virtual machine environment which can then be used for game streaming without disrupting your main PC’s functionality.
To access Castor, check out Black Seraph’s Patreon page. You will need to subscribe to the $10 tier for at least one month but can cancel after that if you’d like. While you are a member, consider grabbing Black Seraph’s custom firmware builds for the RG552, PowKiddy X18S, and various GPD devices.
Castor is made though a package of open-source and prorpeitary tools all compiled into one simple, user-friendly package. If you would like to see the modified GPL & MIT-licensed components of Castor, here is the GitHub page. This includes the mirror driver, patched Sunshine & the NAT-compatible Android Moonlight client.

The new Beelink SER5 (Ryzen 5 5600H) packs a LOT of power inside a tiny form factor — it can run flawless GameCube and PS2 at 1080p, and much more — and it is very capable for non-gaming tasks too. I’m excited to test this one and show why I think it’s the best mini PC deal you can find under $500 right now.

The AYANEO Air is the latest handheld PC to come to market, and it has some distinguishing characteristics: it’s ultra small for what it can do, and features a beautiful OLED panel with 1080p resolution. Let’s take a deep dive look at the device and see if it’s worth the $500+ asking price. Additionally, is it a “Steam Deck killer” or a “Switch killer”? I can never keep them straight.

In my initial assessment of the Win600, I preferred the SteamOS image that Anbernic provided over the generic Windows 10 experience. However, some of the features of their SteamOS image are not fully fleshed out, to include thermal limit (TDP) and screen refresh rate calibration. In this guide we’re going to use Windows apps to tweak the settings in a clean Windows 11 installation, to give you the best balance of performance and power savings.
Special thanks to Chenwk from the DTRH YouTube channel, for helping walk me through some of these settings configuration.

A month ago I tested Windows on my AYN Odin, and I liked it so much that I kept using it. In this video I’ll show off some of the expected gaming performance if you want to try this for yourself. Overall I don’t recommend this for the Odin as your primary handheld, but it was a fun way to access some games you couldn’t otherwise play on this device. But in the end, you’re best served by using the stock Android operating system and streaming PC games instead.
Install Windows 11
