AYANEO AM02 Mini-PC Released: Comes with Ryzen 7 7840HS Processor and Touchscreen Display
In a bid to blend nostalgia with cutting-edge technology, AYANEO, the innovative tech company, has announced the launch of its latest mini-PC, the AM02. Following the earlier release of the AM01, AYANEO's new offering takes a step forward with upgraded hardware, featuring the powerful Ryzen 7 7840HS processor and a 4-inch touchscreen display.
AYANEO first caught the attention of tech enthusiasts a few months ago with the introduction of the AM01 and AM02, drawing inspiration from iconic late 80s devices. The AM01, equipped with AMD Ryzen 3 3200U and Ryzen 7 5700U APUs, garnered significant interest during its crowdfunding campaign, offering a starting early bird price of $149. However, a recent announcement by the company revealed unforeseen delays in fulfilling many AM01 orders, pushing the delivery timeline to early February.
Undeterred by the challenges, AYANEO is set to introduce the AM02, boasting an upgraded Ryzen 7 7840HS processor. This processor features an octa-core design with Zen 4 cores that can achieve a clock speed of 5.1 GHz, accompanied by a Radeon 780M integrated GPU. Notably, the Ryzen 7 7840HS carries a higher Thermal Design Power (TDP) compared to the Ryzen 7 7840U, commonly found in modern gaming handhelds, delivering a promising 25% improvement in performance, as indicated by benchmark tests.
The centerpiece of the AM02 lies in its 4-inch touchscreen display, a feature reminiscent of MINISFORUM's UH185 Ultra that made waves at CES 2024. AYANEO's decision to incorporate a touchscreen adds a layer of versatility to the mini-PC, expanding its capabilities and catering to a spectrum of use cases.
This innovative addition opens up new possibilities for user interaction, making the AM02 not only a powerhouse in performance but also a dynamic tool suitable for a range of creative, professional, and entertainment applications. Whether it's navigating through applications, creating digital art, or enhancing the overall user experience, the touchscreen functionality is poised to redefine how users engage with this compact and stylish computing device.
AYANEO has chosen Indiegogo as the platform to launch the AM02, with sales set to commence on January 18. While the pricing details have not been confirmed yet, the company has teased potential buyers with a glimpse of the available ports, visible in product images.
The front of the AM02 will host:
- 1x 3.5mm audio jack
- 2x USB Type-A ports
- 1x USB Type-C port
Moving to the rear, users can expect:
- 1x DisplayPort
- 2x Ethernet ports
- 1x HDMI port
- 2x USB Type-A ports
- 1x USB Type-C port for power
This comprehensive array of ports ensures that the AM02 caters to a wide range of connectivity needs, making it suitable for both work and entertainment purposes. As AYANEO prepares to launch its latest creation, tech enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating the AM02's crowdfunding campaign, looking forward to exploring the fusion of nostalgia and cutting-edge technology in a compact and stylish form factor.
