Recommendation for low-power SBC with wifi

Hi, I'm looking for an SBC with good on-board wifi but lower power consumption than the Raspberry Pi 4. It's for media streaming so it needs to have rock-solid wifi and I'd prefer not to use a dongle. It's also battery powered, the RPi 4 works well but it's massively overpowered and consumes the battery faster than I'd like. Any recommendations?

Thanks

RPI0W with external wifi mod, the internal is very weak

Orange Pi's are pretty good but run hot so a heatsink is almost mandatory, you can convert a debian image to Dietpi with a script
