There have been many brands that have made a move after the success of the Steam Deck. Valve seems to have hit the nail on the head by betting on a console based on laptop hardware, something that a few months ago seemed risky, as it went against the grain of everything we had seen so far. While thousands of gamers patiently wait to receive the Steam Deck they have ordered, many other brands continue to show the world their new advanced consoles. The latest novelty in this world is the AOKZOE A1the first with a Ryzen 6800U inside.
Follow the Steam Deck fever
The handheld market seemed completely stagnant and dying until Valve introduced the Steam Deck. Gabe Newell’s company promised an AMD Ryzen-based laptop and they kept their word. Since then, other brands have been encouraged to create their own consoles based on AMD and Intel processors. Almost all the devices we have seen from other companies equip quite a bit of hardware. more powerful than the Steam Deck. And this, to a certain extent, is logical. The Steam Deck is not only a good product for its hardware, but a large part of its charm is the fact that it works with SteamOS, a system based on Arch Linux and custom built for it. On the other hand, the rest of the brands must do whatever it takes to stand out. Putting a very powerful chip in your consoles—even if they run Windows—is a pretty logical way to get attention.
AOKZOE A1 Features
In this line, the AOKZOE A1 is the new console that raises the hardware bar in this type of handheld equipment. This laptop is the first to hit the market with a AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor, and will compete directly with the GPD Win Max 2, which will also have that processor. Graphically, the AOKZOE A1 will be accompanied by a Radeon 680M graphics. Depending on the model we choose, the device will have 16 or 32 GB of RAM.
Regarding the rest of the specifications, the console has a 8-inch display with a 1,920-by-1,200-pixel IPS panel. The console has all kinds of sensors that accompany its triggers and buttons so that the player has the most immersive experience possible. In addition, it has haptic vibration.
What can the AOKZOE A1 do?
As is usual in these cases, the youtuber ETA Prime has done several tests with the console, choosing the same video game and measuring the performance at different resolutions. For his tests, the expert has used the Windows 11 system, although the AOKZOE A1 will also be compatible with SteamOS.
The power of AOKZOE A1 is clearly noticeable while testing a game like Forza Horizon 5. In low graphics and 1080P, the game runs with great fluency. Subsequently, the youtuber raises the demand with medium graphics, and although the TDP increases considerably, the game continues to work without crashing once. In the video he also shows some extra tests with Halo Infinite, God of War, CyberPunk 2077 and Grand Theft Auto V. In all cases, the console meets what we expect from it.
At the emulation level, the AOKZOE A1 also aims very high. ETA Prime has uploaded a second video in which it tests the capabilities of the laptop using the emulators best known on the market.
What price are we talking about?
Before we say goodbye, you will be wondering about the price. The company has not yet given the official datajust as it is unknown what type of SSD it is going to mount and how much capacity.
