AYANEO is introducing a new portable gaming console that embraces the essence of handheld gaming. It combines top-notch hardware with a slim and lightweight design, potentially making it one of the pioneering Ryzen 7000 consoles that can easily fit in your pocket.
AYANEO has recently revealed two gaming systems that utilize the same AMD hardware, providing a diverse selection for consumers. These systems are named the AIR 1S and AIR 1S Ultra-Thin & Light versions. Now, let’s explore the common specifications shared by both systems.
The 1S series features the powerful Ryzen 7 7840U Zen4 Phoenix processor, which boasts 8 cores and an impressive boost clock speed of up to 5.1 GHz. Although specific details haven’t been fully disclosed by the company, it’s important to note that this processor operates efficiently within a range of 5W to 25W.
The AYANEO 1S integrates LPDDR5X memory directly into the system, although the specific speed hasn’t been officially confirmed by the company. There are two memory options available: 16GB for the base model and 32GB for all other variants.
Impressively, AYANEO has managed to incorporate a large M.2 2280 SSD into this compact system, offering gamers a wider range of storage upgrade options compared to the standard M.2 2230 SSDs found in Ally’s and Deck’s consoles. Users who prioritize convenience can select from storage capacities of 512GB, 1TB, 2TB, and even 4TB.
In terms of pricing, the console will initially be available at a discounted rate during the crowdfunding period, with savings ranging from $100 to $150 compared to the eventual retail price. However, we strongly discourage preordering hardware, especially devices that have not undergone comprehensive testing. Therefore, we will only provide information on the final retail price.
Here are the retail prices for the AIR 1S, as disclosed by AYANEO:
• The base version, which includes 16GB of memory and 512GB of storage, will be priced at $899.
• Users have the option to upgrade memory and storage at a reasonable additional cost, with only a $30 increase for the 1TB to 2TB storage upgrade.
• The most advanced model, featuring “Retro Power” styling, offers 32GB of memory and 4TB of storage, priced at $1,259.
AYANEO has announced that the crowdfunding campaign will commence on July 11th.
