OnexPlayer 2 will be Released at The End of This Month - Starts at a Price of $899
We can already know when the pre-sale of the OneXPlayer 2 portable console will begin and at what price. This console for making use of a design quite inspired by the Nintendo Switch. This is because the controllers are anchored to a bracket on the chassis itself , controllers that can be removed and used wirelessly. Going to what matters most, this console will begin to be pre-sold on the crowdfunding crowdfunding platform on December 18 at a starting price of $899 . Of course, if everything goes as it should, the first shipments will begin in March 2023. If you want to know what you get for that price, we will let you know the specifications of the OneXPlayer 2 game console after the jump.
Thus we come across an 8.4-inch IPS panel capable of reaching a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels with a maximum brightness of 350 nits . This panel will thus offer great definition when playing multimedia content or in undemanding games. In more demanding games, or according to the needs, you can reduce the resolution to increase performance and autonomy in multimedia content.
Inside we find the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U . This CPU hides a configuration of 8 cores and 12 processing threads under the AMD Zen3+ architecture at a 7nm lithography from TSMC. These cores reach Base/Turbo frequencies of 2.70 / 4.70 GHz , and are accompanied by a fairly respectable iGPU: the well-known AMD Radeon 680M.
This GPU offers a configuration of 768 Stream Processors @ 2.20 GHz under the AMD RDNA2 architecture. This is a lot of power for a portable console. As a reference, there are 50% more cores compared to the 512 Stream Processors offered by the integrated graphics in the Steam Deck. It is also the GPU that most of the new generation handheld consoles are including. The reason is very simple: good balance between performance and energy consumption.
The rest of the hardware is completed with 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM memory at a frequency of 6,400 MHz. We continue with an NVMe PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD drive , and a TF Card 4.0 card reader to expand its capacity quickly and affordably. Like Plan B, very Plan B, there is a variant with a 13th Generation Intel Core i7 (Raptor Lake) that we will pretend to not exist.
Finishing with the close look, the OneXPlayer 2 offers a 17,1000 mAh capacity battery with fast charging technology (from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes). We continue with the Harman Kardon sound system, WiFi 6 + Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity, and all this in dimensions of 310 x 127 x 39.8 mm thick, or 208 x 127 x 22.5 mm thick without the controls fixed to the chassis. For reference, the Steam Deck measures 298 x 117 x 49mm.
The pre-purchase of the OneXPlayer 2 starts on December 18 on Indiegogo, a starting price is $899 . For this price you get 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal storage . Additionally, there are versions with 32 GB of RAM and up to 2 TB of capacity.
