This console stands out for making use of an 8-inch IPS panel with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (283 PPI) with a maximum brightness of 380 nits and that covers 100% of the sRGB color space. This comes to life through an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U @ 6nm processor from TSMC, which means having access to a configuration with 8 cores and 16 threads under the AMD Zen3 + architecture at Base / Turbo frequencies of 2.70 / 4.70 GHz and an iGPU quite decent, the well-known AMD Radeon 680M , which is capable of offering 768 Stream Processors @ 2.20 GHz .
This CPU would be accompanied by a configuration of 16 GB / 32 GB of LPDDR5 @ 6400 MHz RAM, along with 512 GB, 1 TB or 2 TB of internal storage. All this is seasoned with the Windows 11 or SteamOS operating system together with an RGB LED lighting system that can be configured in various lighting modes.
Regarding its performance, at a resolution of 1280 x 800p it promises to move most games to a performance around 60 FPS, among which is Elden Ring, Cyberpunk 2077, Monster Hunter: World, or Grand Theft Auto 5. Although no graphics settings are indicated, it stands to reason that they are around Medium. Playing at a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels can choke you in some games, but if we remember that we can use technologies such as AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 , then we can boost performance, which is ideal if you want to connect to a monitor or television and better enjoy the experience at home.
