At the beginning of the year, it became known that the Google Stadia project would soon change dramatically, and the search giant would license relevant cloud technologies to those who wished as part of the Google Stream service.
Now we have more data on this. So, the new product is called Immersive Stream for Games. In fact, this is Google’s cloud gaming platform, on the basis of which the partners of the search giant will be able to offer certain games to their customers. For example, back in October, AT&T offered its users a free browser game Batman: Arkham Knight, which was launched just on Stadia. Actually, AT&T just became the first client of Immersive Stream for Games.
On behalf of AT&T, I would like to congratulate Google on the launch of Immersive Stream for Games. This technology, combined with the AT&T network, gives us the ability to deliver games directly to customers. Together, we’re bringing Batman: Arkham Knight click-to-play to our wireless users on the devices they already own, without the need for a console or high-end gaming PC.
And for the first time, the game is available without downloads, without creating an account and without passwords. Just enter your AT&T phone number and start playing in seconds.
The full game is available in your browser along with bonus content, progress saved to the cloud, and perfect picture quality at 1080p at 60 frames per second.
Thousands of our customers have already enjoyed the game, and we are preparing to launch our next game on the Immersive Stream platform soon. At the same time, we will expand our customers’ access to play on their mobile devices, whether they are at home or on the go.
Interested developers and publishers can register through this form on the site to contact the Google Immersive Stream for Games team.
Aya Neo portable consoles introduced with Ryzen 6800U, OLED and Windows OS
Aya Neo has announced Aya Neo Air and Aya Neo 2 handheld game consoles. Aya NeoAir is the first Windows-based handheld console with an OLED screen, while Aya Neo 2 is powered by AMD Ryzen 6800U chipset.
Aya Neo Air is equipped with a modern vibration motor, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a USB-C port and a microSD card slot. It also has RGB lighting and speaker holes on both sides. The Aya Neo Air is very similar to the Nintendo Switch Lite but powerful enough to match the Steam Deck.
Aya Neo is equipped with a 6-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution screen that covers 109% of the NTSC color space. Aya Neo Air is based on the Ryzen 5000 APU. The device weighs about 420 grams.
The Aya Neo Air is available for pre-order now in China, where the device is priced at $647.
The Aya Neo model has a 5.5-inch OLED screen and AMD Ryzen 6800U chipset, which is the first to be used in a handheld game console. There are no details about the device, but it is known that it will be released at the end of the year.
AYANEO2 game console graphics performance is twice that of Steam Deck
The AYANEO2 handheld game console from China has become the first device in its category based on AMD Rembrandt APUs (Ryzen 6000U series) with Zen3+ architecture CPU and RDNA2 GPU. More specifically, AYANEO2 is based on the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU.
Probably, at the moment AYANEO2 is the most powerful device in the segment, since the same AYANEO NEXT and ONEXPLAYER Mini are based on the Ryzen 7 5800U. As for the Steam Deck, it is architecturally similar to AYANEO2 in terms of the graphics subsystem, only the Radeon 680M, which is part of the Ryzen 7 6800U, has 50% more computing units and 600 MHz higher GPU frequency. Therefore, the performance is 3.38 TFLOPS versus 1.6 TFLOPS in favor of the Chinese news. This is about graphics, but in terms of CPU, AYANEO2 also has an advantage: 8 cores, 16 threads and a maximum frequency of 4.7 GHz versus 4 cores, 8 threads and a frequency of 3.5 GHz for Steam Deck.
The developers have already demonstrated AYANEO2 in popular games like Metro Exodus, Cyberpunk 2077, Witcher 3 and Elden Ring. From what they showed, the screen resolution is 1280 x 800 pixels.
Alas, the date of the full-fledged premiere of AYANEO2 has not yet been announced. But the appearance of the device on sale is promised by the end of the year.
The new PlayStation 5 model is ready for production: the console will receive a 6-nm processor from AMD
Sony Interactive Entertainment has registered a new PlayStation 5 model in Japan. The company received certification for a console with model number CFI-1200 with updated radio equipment. The original PS5 uses the CFI-1XXX model numbering scheme, while the 2021 version uses the CFI-11XX model numbering scheme.
The product has been certified by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan, which guarantees that radio and wireless communications equipment meets certain technical standards.
In May last year, it was reported that Sony would begin production of the updated PS5 console in 2022. It will use a “new semi-customized” 6nm processor from AMD (the original processor was manufactured on a 7nm process). Taiwanese business website DigiTimes said that suppliers, including semiconductor factory TSMC, planned to begin production of the updated PS5 console between the second and third quarters of this year.
Last year’s redesigned PS5 was purely component-focused and didn’t see any significant external changes. It is quite possible that this will happen again with the CFI-1200 model.
Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki said last year that the company is looking at various solutions to help it deal with the global shortage of hardware components, including potential redesign or finding secondary suppliers.
Sony announced on Tuesday that it shipped 11.5 million PS5 consoles during the fiscal year ending March 2022, missing its original goal of 14.8 million by more than three million units, due to a shortage of parts.
However, the company has said it expects to sell significantly more PS5 consoles (18 million units) during the current fiscal year ending March 2023.
