One year back at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, Alienware caused a ripple effect with a measured gaming PC that worked like a Nintendo Switch, with a couple of gamepads flanking an amazing Windows 10 tablet. Unfortunately, Alienware’s UFO was only an idea, just like Lenovo’s interpretation of the thought for the current year — however, two organizations are presently taking up the light with a couple of crowdfunded contraptions you may really find in the course of your life. They look genuinely genuine. (GPD win 3 release date)
5.5-inch GPD Win 3
The 5.5-inch GPD Win 3 and the 7-inch Aya Neo aren’t going about it in a remarkable same manner; while the Ava attempts to intently coordinate Nintendo’s comfort fit as a fiddle, size, and with careful gaming controls ready, the GPD adheres to its palmtop PC digs with a slide-up screen that uncovers a little illuminated console. There’s additionally a unique mark sensor, a MicroSD opening, and a discretionary Thunderbolt 4 dock in the event that you need to utilize the GPD like a full Windows 10 PC.
AMD’s Ryzen 4500U
What’s the equivalent: both are really attempting to convey a ground-breaking tablet encompassed by joysticks and catches for under $1,000 each. With Intel’s most recent Tiger Lake chips and AMD’s Ryzen 4500U individually, each has probably the best in class coordinated designs you can purchase, and they guarantee really good execution subsequently — Cyberpunk 2077 can purportedly hit 30fps at the Aya Neo’s 1280×800 goal at low settings, and GPD offers a not insignificant rundown of instances of later, requesting games that you can persuade well over the 50fps mark with its Intel Xe illustrations.
As you can find in the spec correlation sheet I prepared underneath, each highlights 16GB of DDR4 memory, and expedient NVMe strong state drive, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, a couple of sound system speakers, a certified earphone jack, and various USB ports. Not terrible!

Simply realize that these frameworks will be chunkily contrasted with a genuine Nintendo Switch’s 0.55-inch thick casing and 0.88-pound weight. Battery life will be a central issue, with both the Aya Neo and GPD Win 3 permitting you to tweak the chip’s TDP wattage to benefit from their tablet-sized cells. NotebookCheck says you shouldn’t anticipate getting more than 1.5 hours out of the GPD Win 3 while playing a requesting game. However, Taki Udon on YouTube claims you can get 2-3 hours out of an early Aya Neo.
Taki Udon’s video
Discussing Taki Udon’s video, it would seem that a fabulous diagram of the handheld, so I suggest looking at it. This second video shows off how well games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Sekiro play on his Founder’s model. It’s insufficient to persuade me to crowdfund an organization I’ve never known about, yet it’s a decent beginning.
You ought to likewise realize that not these handhelds will appear to be identical. The straightforward Aya you’re finding in the recordings was a restricted version of 15,000 for early pre-orders in China. With definite models dispatching in high contrast rather when they transport in April. Aya will dispatch its Indiegogo crusade in February with an “overly prompt riser restricted cost” of $699. With no word on how much most of us may pay.
GPD Win 3
The GPD Win 3 is as of now on Indiegogo, where you’ll pay $799 for the Core i5-1135G7 rendition. With the more remarkable i7 chip beginning at $899, or $949. For a bundle with the discretionary USB, HDMI, and Gigabit Ethernet docking station.
Between these handheld gaming PCs, the adorable impending Playdate. The ravishing Analog Pocket, a portion of the clean as a whistle mods we’ve seen of late. Also the ubiquity of the Switch itself and the walk of ever more modest and all the more impressive chips. It seems like we may be entering a gaming handheld renaissance. Hopefully.
