The AOKZOE A1 Pro is the latest handheld gaming PC that boasts a powerful Ryzen 7 7840U processor. This handheld device sports an 8-inch screen, which is surrounded by analogue sticks, and is equipped with patches of RGB lighting, though its placement may not always be visible during gameplay. The Ryzen 7 7840U chip is a huge step up from the AMD chip used in the Steam Deck, as it shares an eight-core Zen 4 CPU with a 12 CU RDNA 3 GPU.
Benchmarks and Models
AOKZOE has released several benchmarks to give a rough idea of the performance of the A1 Pro. This handheld device can run a 1920 x 1200 pixel screen, which offers a significant improvement over the Steam Deck. The A1 Pro will be available in four models, with prices ranging from $799 to $1,159, depending on the storage capacity and RAM. The cheapest model has 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM, twice the amount offered by Asus, but it is notably heavier at 729g compared to the 608g weight of the Steam Deck.
The A1 Pro’s Winning Features
One of the A1 Pro’s selling points is its monster battery, which has a full 65Wh capacity and a 17,100mAh rating. This battery capacity is way ahead of the 40Wh, 5200mAh battery used in the Steam Deck. The A1 Pro’s battery life alone could be a game-changer for gamers who are always on the go.
The A1 Pro will be launched on April 30 on Indiegogo, ahead of the ROG Ally’s release date. However, buyers may not receive the device before someone who purchases the ROG Ally at launch. Overall, the AOKZOE A1 Pro is an exciting option for gamers who want a portable PC that packs a powerful punch. While the Windows OS may not be as handy in cramped spaces as the Steam Deck’s SteamOS, the A1 Pro’s performance potential is something to look forward to.
