A revolution in the world of handheld Windows consoles. Ayaneo Air Plus on AMD’s latest platform will cost just $290

It looks like AMD has already revolutionized the handheld gaming market, it just takes time.

The other day we were talking about the new Ayn Loki console, which, starting at $500, will be based on Ryzen 6000, which means that in terms of performance it may even be better than Steam Deck. Now we can say that the Valve console is probably no longer the leader in terms of price and performance. At least in absentia.

A revolution in the world of handheld Windows consoles.  Ayaneo Air Plus on AMD's latest platform will cost just $290

Ayaneo has unveiled the Air Plus, which will start at just $290! And already for this money, the performance should be quite high.

The console will be based on AMD’s Mendocino APUs, which the company showed at Computex. They combine four processor cores on the Zen 2 architecture and a GPU on the RDNA 2 architecture. That is, this is the same set as the APU in the Steam Deck. AMD itself focuses these processors on cheap laptops, but no one bothers using them to create pocket set-top boxes.

Unfortunately, we do not yet know the details about the GPU configuration of such APUs, so we cannot confidently say that Ayaneo Air Plus will be more productive than Steam Deck, but it is likely that they will be at least on the same level.

True, there is one important nuance. The Air Plus’ six-inch screen will be Full HD, which is a much more significant load on the GPU compared to the Valve console. But at $290, there’s hardly anything to complain about. Suffice it to remember that now these consoles with older processors cost $ 1,000 or more.

It remains to be added that Mendocino APUs will be released in the fourth quarter, so consoles based on them will appear at least at the end of the year.

Even Xbox One will be able to give out 60

AMD FSR 2.0 technology is coming soon to Xbox consoles.

Even Xbox One will be able to give out 60 ks?  AMD FSR 2.0 Technology Coming to Microsoft Consoles

This was reported by representatives of the GPUOpen team, as well as a Microsoft employee, that is, these are not rumors. However, there are no exact dates yet.

But it is known that FSR 2.0 will appear not only on the Xbox Series, but also on the Xbox One, which may allow the latter to actually get a second life, since the console will be able to better cope with modern games.

At the same time, in the case of consoles, you need to understand that they almost always support various upscaling technologies anyway. Consoles have a very long lifespan, and their hardware must be able to handle new games years after the device’s release. As such, it’s hard to say just how much FSR 2.0 will help consoles handle modern games or higher resolutions better.

It is also worth remembering that FSR 2.0 has been integrated into Unreal Engine 4 and 5 as a plug-in, which makes it easier to integrate the technology into relevant games.
