AYANEO recently held a product showcase on their YouTube channel to provide technical details about their upcoming AYANEO 2S refresh, which is an improvement on last year's AYANEO 2. The new handheld console boasts significant upgrades, including AMD's Ryzen 7 7840U with Radeon 780M graphics, LPDDR5X-7500, and a redesigned cooling system. The Ryzen 7 7840U is similar to the recently announced Ryzen Z1 Extreme that the ASUS ROG Ally can be equipped with. Both SoCs have 8 "Zen 4" cores and a 12CU RDNA3 graphics engine, with a TDP of 15 W. AYANEO has upgraded the cooling system for this SoC to a triple heatpipe array soldered to a copper heatspreader, which they call their "3+1" cooling design. They claim that the new design reduces SoC load temperatures by up to 11.6C and has 33% more surface area than the previous generation AYANEO 2. AYANEO has also improved the fit and finish of the body and trigger assemblies to better fit the hand and aid in ease of disassembly. Other specifications, such as the 7-inch 1920x1200 IPS display, 16 GB RAM, and 512 GB base configuration SSD, have remained mostly unchanged. The updated motherboard will fit the existing AYANEO 2 chassis and will be available via a new upgrade service offered to current AYANEO 2 owners. Pricing for both the upgrade service and the new console has not yet been announced, but the AYANEO 2 currently lists for $1,099 - $1,499, so the 2S may replace it at those price points. The AYANEO 2S will initially launch with three color options: "Starry Black", "Sky White", and a limited edition "Retro Power" scheme. It is expected to go on pre-order in May, with first unit deliveries in June.
