Handheld gaming PC manufacturer AYANEO has launched a crowdfunding campaign for its latest line of device: the AYANEO AIR. The device stands out with its compact form factor, featuring drift-free Hall-based analogue sticks, as well as for being the first Windows gaming handheld with an OLED display. The device is also lightweight, with the lightest model weighing around 395g.
Indeed there are different models of the device, with different specs as well as themes. The models range from the AIR Lite, which packs an AMD Ryzen 5 5560U APU and retails for $499 on Indiegogo, to the AIR Pro that packs AMD Ryzen 7 5825U APU and starts at $899. The pricing varies based on the models and specs as you can see in the images below. You can also find accessories that are launching alongside the device such as themed controllers and carry cases.
Regarding the device's performance, AYANEO has recently aired some videos running games on the system. It is mostly aimed at indie titles but can also handle AAA games of yesteryear decently, which could make it an adequate device for clearing your backlog on the go.
At the time of writing, the Indiegogo campaign has reached its funding goals and the AYANEO AIR is expected to ship in late August but caution is always advised with crowdfunding campaigns. However, AYANEO has a decent track record with its campaigns. And with more competitors entering the market like Anbernic, there might be also more options for you to choose from based on your needs. Do you have a preference for handheld gaming PCs?
