The Aya Neo is looking to bring PC gaming to the handheld arena. With its AMD Ryzen 5 4500U, it’s the world’s first 7 nm handheld gaming device with a 7-inch 800p H-IPS touch screen. The 215 PPI display is rated at 500 nits, which makes it comparable to most laptops in terms of brightness and clarity. Running on Windows 10, the Aya Neo is capable of playing AAA titles at 30 to 60 FPS.
The Aya Neo has multiple power profiles tuned for higher performance or battery savings. The battery, which is provided by BYD Auto, is said to last 5 to 6 hours at its lowest settings but goes down to around 140 minutes at max settings. USB ports on both the Aya Neo and its docking station allow it to be connected to up to two displays and support mouse and keyboard.
Since starting on Indiegogo, the Aya Neo campaign has already raised over $1.5 million, a big increase over its $54,000 initial goal. There are many customizable options such as rubber grips, alternate controller pads, and different SSD sizes. The Aya Neo starts at $698 and costs up to $959 for the ultimate package. Most are already claimed, and shipping is expected to begin in May 2021.
