The very first batch of AMD’s Ryzen 7 6800U processors for the A1 console has been delivered, as confirmed by AOKZOE’s founder, Chengzhi Zong. The batch consists of 22 boxes, each of which has been comprised of five trays and 32 Ryzen CPUs. So, this means a combined number of 3520 processors in this one batch.
The Ryzen 7 6800U is AMD’s latest mobile CPU which has been designed and built specifically for low powered devices. It consists of 8 cores and 16 threads and is based on the Zen3+ core architecture which has been codenamed as Rembrandt. The processor features 12 graphics Compute Units based on the RDNA2 architecture which means there is a small upgrade as compared to the AMD Vega on the Ryzen 4000 and 5000 series.
AMD’s Zen/RDNA2 APUs are no more only exclusive to the more power-hungry gaming consoles like the PS5 or the Xbox Series. Times have changed and now even battery-powered and handheld devices are based on AMD hardware. Some examples include the gaming consoles by OneXPlayer, GDP, or AOKZOE. Even the steam deck by Valve is powered by AMD hardware.
In these cases, the more power-consuming 45W mobile CPUs are not the best fit since they have a limited battery capacity. Here, the Rembrandt is combining power efficiency along with powerful mobile graphics. This explains why so many companies are going after similar architecture and configuration for their devices.
As the Ryzen 7 6800U CPUs have arrived, the production plans of AOKZOE seem to be in full swing. The company has decided to fulfill the first orders for the A1 console by September.
