AyaNeo Next promises Cyberpunk 2077 in your pocket
Handheld PC gaming existed even before Steam Deck was announced, and was advocated by companies such as AyaNeo and GPD. Although Steam Deck has overshadowed its products with a lower price, the aforementioned companies are not giving up on their business. AyaNeo has thus announced a new series of its handheld gaming PCs, called AyaNeo Next.
Devices that look very similar to the Nintendo Switch are based on the AMD Ryzen 7 5800U processor. With the combination of Radeon Vega 8 APUs, AyaNeo Next promises more raw power than Steam Deck, with a more durable 47 Wh battery.
The screen of the AyaNeo Next is similar to the one used on the Steam Deck - it is a 7-inch LCD screen with an IPS matrix, resolution 1280 × 800. The biggest difference between the Aya Neo Next model and the Steam Deck is that it delivers significantly more NVMe disk capacity - as much as two terabytes versus the 512 GB provided by the most expensive Steam Deck model.
Of course, all this will come at a fairly high price - $ 1345 for the most expensive model. For that money, the device allows you to play Cyberpunk 2077 at 23 fps at high settings. Forza Horizon 5 goes a bit better - at 67 fps on medium, and The Witcher 3 at 41 fps also on medium settings.
