Irrespective of how briskly a GPU in your cell system-on-chip is, a discrete graphics processor will nonetheless be sooner. It’s most likely what builders from AyaNeo thought once they envisioned the AyaNeo Subsequent II transportable recreation console that can function a standalone GPU from AMD or Intel.
Roughly refined transportable units featured a discrete graphics processor again within the day. However the evolution of course of applied sciences allowed to construct GPUs into utility processors, which is why most notebooks, transportable recreation consoles, smartphones, and tablets function built-in graphics in the present day. With its AyaNeo Subsequent II console, the corporate determined to vary that and combine a discrete graphics chip — AMD’s Radeon RX 6000M sequence or Intel’s Arc A-series (aka DG2), the corporate revealed at its announcement over on YouTube (opens in new tab).
Aya Neo didn’t reveal a lot about its Subsequent II recreation console’s specs besides that the Intel model will make the most of the twelfth Era Core Alder Lake CPU and an Arc GPU. In distinction, the AMD taste will ship with the corporate’s 6nm Ryzen 6000 6nm (Rembrandt) processor and a Radeon RX 6000M GPU. Sadly, the corporate didn’t disclose which GPUs it plans to combine. Nonetheless, we’d count on one thing very power environment friendly, so assume one thing like Radeon RX 6400M or Radeon RX 6500M, or a customized answer based mostly on the Navi 21 graphics chip.
Along with a discrete GPU, the AyaNeo Subsequent II may also function upgraded controls and sure ranges of upgradeability. Nevertheless, the corporate didn’t elaborate on what precisely will probably be potential to improve.
Warmth is likely one of the important challenges with integrating discrete GPU right into a small kind issue like a conveyable recreation console. Since AyaNeo demonstrated its Subsequent II console solely briefly (and we aren’t even positive that it was a prototype, however not a render), we do not know how the corporate intends to chill down each a CPU and a GPU. Maybe, the developer will go together with a few high-speed followers, although we aren’t positive.
For sure that Aya Neo will place its Subsequent II console as its High Premium Version flagship product, and the corporate will worth it accordingly. Sadly, we will solely surprise how a lot will the corporate cost for its new transportable console, however we presume an arm and a leg.
