The portable gaming lines from AYANEO, which compete with the Nintendo Switch and Valve’s Steam Deck, gained notoriety last year. A new version of AYANEO’s renowned Geek series is now being developed, reverting to a traditional form factor and powered by AMD’s Ryzen 7 6800U APU. The business has created several methods to locate a place in a wide range of pricing from $299 to a little over $1000.
The black and translucent violet colour scheme of the new AYANEO Geek 2 Handheld Gaming Console is inspired by the Nintendo 64 and Gameboy Color consoles. This design’s form factor differs from the AYANEO and AYANEO NEXT (ordinary and PRO variants) presently offered on the business website. The machine will include 512GB of storage and an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU.
Outside of price and aesthetics, nothing else is known about the new Geek line. With an AMD Ryzen 7 5825U CPU with eight cores and sixteen threads, the AYANEO Next and Next Pro are the closest to the processing power and are available for purchase on their website.
Released in April 2022, the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU has the same eight cores spread over sixteen threads, a base speed of 2.7 GHz, and a peak rate reaching 4.7 GHz. The CPU was designed to support PCIe 4.0 certification and comes pre-equipped with DDR5 support. The AMD Radeon 680M integrated GPU, which has 12 cores and operates at a frequency of 2200 MHz, serves as the APU’s graphics processor.
The firm has announced no current release date for the new system, and no details about a preorder line have been made public. That would be the tactically optimal moment for the firm to introduce the new system if it plans to do so close to the Christmas season to compete with Valve and Nintendo. Pricing is set at around 635 US dollars or 4399 RMB, and the launch should occur soon.
