Emdoor has revealed their new handheld gaming consoles, which are the first to feature Intel’s upcoming Meteor Lake H-series processors alongside the Intel ARC 5 GPU. These Meteor Lake-H chips, part of the Core Ultra 100H series, are set to launch in December. In anticipation of this release, companies like Emdoor are showcasing their devices designed for low-power mobile devices, especially handheld gaming systems.
Emdoor, primarily recognized for its Mini-PCs and tablet business, is entering the handheld gaming device market. Interestingly, their device shares a similar design with competitors like AYANEO, ONEXPLAYER, and AYN but includes custom features like a built-in stand.
The device runs on a Meteor Lake-H processor, with a power range of 20W to 25W, higher than most handheld devices like the Steam Deck (as low as 9W) or ASUS ROG Ally (15W). The 8-inch screen with a 1920×1200 resolution has become standard in the handheld gaming space. Regarding storage, it appears to support PCIe Gen4 specifications with a capacity of up to 2TB. While the system memory speed is unconfirmed, it may support up to 32GB of LPDDR5X memory.
Notably, the system is equipped with the Arc 5 GPU, an integrated Alchemist GPU with an estimated 4 to 8 Xe-Cores, typical for Meteor Lake chips. It’s demonstrated to run games like God of War.
The market has seen increased competition with the introduction of the AMD Phoenix APU featuring Zen4/RDNA3 architectures, and the arrival of Meteor Lake-H is expected to intensify this competition.
