AYA-NEO has revealed its AYANEO GEEK handheld gaming PCs and is now taking pre-order registrations for them. They feature an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U 8c/16t APU with 12 compute units. It is available with either an 800P or 1200P display. The 6800U has a base clock of 2.7 GHz and can boost up to 4.7 GHz. Storage options range from 512 GB to 1 TB and include 16 GB of memory.

The 800P/512 GB model is listed at 4399 RMB (~$630) while the 1200P/512 GB version is priced at 5288 RMB (~$763). Presently the AYANEO GEEK handhelds are only being offered in China but sale options for international customers are expected with roughly a $100-$120 price increase for shipping. This pricing would allow it to compete with the current Steamdeck while leveraging the increased price with an upgraded processor and multiple display options.

Shipping dates for the AYANEO GEEK have not been revealed but it is a possibility that the company intends to compete with Nintendo for the holidays with its budget pricing strategy. The company already has a wide range of handhelds and the 6800U will also be featured in its other more premium product lines.

  1. My deck just shipped - was originally slated for December! Should be here next week.

    I'm kinda excited, even though I have a feeling after a couple of weeks it'll just end up gathering dust.

    I ordered mine 4 days ago. No tracking number yet so I'm not sure if it's actually shipped.
  3. Well, there were stories about a week or two ago that Valve was expecting a bump up on shipments before the holidays so there's still a decent chance recent orders will be received before then. As long as someone doesn't trip on a cord, a new war or pandemic or another biblical-sized weather event doesn't happen by then.
  4. "Preorder" is getting tiresome. 6800U could walk all over the Steam Deck, but God only knows when these new handhelds will ship.
    I will say, I agree that preorder is getting old, but I vastly prefer it to “go play retail lotto with a bunch of bots”
