    Whenever I see things like this I imagine they have awful thermals and terrible battery life. Does anyone here own a GPD pocket to confirm? The Switch can get away with it because it's risc and has a custom os but x86 is power hungry and Windows has it's own stuff running in the background eating up power.

    wow that's quite an interesting. I wonder how hot it is though, and what's the level of details of the games that were being tested

    I guess it's capable of running the Yuzu emulator.

    CPU mark score:
    AMD Ryzen 5 4500U - 11,218

    Single Threaded CPU score:
    AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4500U - 2,486

    GPUmark score:
    Ryzen 5 PRO 4500U with Radeon Graphics - 2,008


    CPU wise it seems solid; roughly on par with a 9th gen Core i5 in both single and multi core performance.

    GPU wise, it fares much worse being on par with a GTX 675M, which is about 6 years old at this point. It's going to struggle with 60fps at 720p and max settings.

    Yeah, it's going to be like all the others, but with an unbalanced, way over powered CPU and too much RAM (possible storage too, really).

    It's going to play older games and emulators, it will likely play a few newer games at lower fps.

    By all reviews and user accounts, the GPD Win / Pocket don't get very hot, but they also have much weaker specs, so it's not a good comparison.

    Will be interesting to see, but I'm not expecting much performance-wise. The integrated Vega GPU with mobile Ryzen APUs aren't particularly impressive, I had a Ryzen 5 2500u laptop and that could barely do 1080p in a lot of high end games, and unfortunately the integrated GPU in AMD's mobile APUs hasn't seen any kind of huge boost (unlike the CPU cores, which have), so I expect it'll be about the same performance-wise which will be depressing for the "most powerful handheld device".

    I have the OG GPD Win. It got uncomfortably hot though I do understand the successor systems have much better thermals.

    How do you expect anyone at all to slap a dedicated GPU in a handheld device. Those things are massive.

    The price... It's about what it should be for a device like this... but who is dropping $700 on these and actually using them?

    Making a powerful device is easy, getting support for it is hard. It is expensive to cram pc hardware into a small formfactor. Nintendo really should have partnered with Qualcomm to get their mobile hardware into the switch. Nvidia's Shield was good for its time but phones have already surpassed its performance even without active cooling.

    *Random Chinese start-up nobody's ever heard of creates a portable PC that costs roughly $200 more than PS5/XBSX and has no marketing or support*

    I'd rather they wait and see how AMDs mobile chips will play out. The Galaxy S21 is coming out next year and reported to come with a chip set from AMD. Qualcomm is cool and all, but they're plateauing with their hardware.

    I just don't understand why people make this connection. This device starts at over twice the cost of the Switch... And offers less... Yeah, a portable PC was cool... In 2007... But this is a gamer marketed toy. It's weird.

    Wow, nice to see AYA-NEO getting on GBATEMP !!!!!

    btw , long time lurker, just feel like addressing all these questions here.

    and let me just say......crysis ? lol
    I guess it should be the game that we demo tmr lol.

    and...

    here is the standard info i am copying from our discord server
    (the invites are all those youtube videos )



    1) barring any further worsening of the current world situation, AYA may potentially be in your hands by Christmas 2020. This is so that Int'l fans can join AYA in it's celebration of it's official retail release of the device.
    2) It will be sold AFTER China's domestic launch (it is easier for RMAs for domestic backers and this helps to weed out any initial batch production issues)
    3) Barring any major changes, price for AYA NEO is to be priced below USD$700. This will be AYA's way of giving it back to it's community in recognition of everyone's support as a new player in this handheld space.
    4) Price above is slated for 4500U.
    5) 4800U may be an option (to be confirmed on both availability and pricing/depending on demand garnered from the community)
    6) AYA is not asking for any upfront payment at this point in time until NEO is ready for sale. Decision on how pre-orders will be conducted is still currently undecided.

    so no , this is not going to be a Smach Z 2.0 lol~

    and yes ,it is NOT cheap, but it is like a computer than a normal console , so
    if you don't have switch yet, I think u should buy a switch first lol.
    if you are like me who can't stop dying from all those indie games like dead cells.
    this might save u a few mins when u respawn lol.

    so yes, it is not for everyone~ and no, u dont have to buy it

    Cheers

    Lee
